We are introducing more foods for example, last week we introduced flax seed oil, it has so many wonderful health benefits and she is tolerating it, so that is wonderful. Now we have moved onto introducing molasses, we usually introduce a new food over about 7 days as Faith has such a sensitive tummy we didn't want to rush it. We are trying to get more fibre into Faith's diet as up until the blended diet there hasn't been any in her diet due to using formula. It is all about balance. Each night we have been giving Faith a probiotic as we want to get the good bugs back into her tummy. She is waking happier most mornings and sleeping so much better. I am loving having more sleep but I find the more sleep I get the more I want. So funny. Faith generally has a couple of hours sleep during the day too waking only when formula is running so I look forward to having even less formula in her diet.
To give you an idea how our menu is progressing this is what we are currently working on,
- brown rice
- wholemeal bread
- sweet potato
- full cream milk
- slow cooked roast beef
- flax seed oil
I must admit that my brain is quite full of information and things I need to do and some days I think how am I going to get all things extra things done with Faith so that she can move forward even more. But somehow I do get there, but there are tears on my behalf with my brain being overwhelmed and thinking how can I manage it all but I do, even though I sometimes feel like I am not getting there. A sense of failure does appear but I know it isn't failure as such but more about me wanting to get more done with Faith and reading more so I can do more. Patience and some more patience...
