I am sorry I haven't updated for a while, I suppose it's because Tabithas eating is now really the norm although she is still coming on leaps and bounds. She goes through phases of what we would call being lazy, because when we hold food out for her she just opens her mouth!! to cut out the middle man I guess, and I know that your not supposed to put food in their mouths but if she's inviting us too then who are we to refuse! I am conscious of this though and we do make her feed herself. She has started to eat with her fingers which we are really pleased about, scooping out food and putting it straight in her mouth! This is big, real proof that blw is working to me as my other girls would not touch food at all. She is still having between 2 and 4 breastfeeds a day, although if I am not around she will quite happily take milk of dad or her sisters. Tabitha doesn't eat a great deal, her appetite varies quite alot, some days very little other days loads! Blw also takes the stress out of these normal inconsistencies as it is very easy to get hung up on how much they eat, but I think as long as she is happy she can't be hungry!
