Oatmeal only please.

I have no idea why we haven't tried this before now, but one day I realized we have never given Bauer oatmeal by itself. We've tried rice, fruits, veggies, and oatmeal mixes which he loved, but couldn't ever keep out of his nose. It usually lasted about 5 bites and things started exploding from his nostrils.

But for some reason the straight oatmeal bites stayed down and he loved it. He loved all the other stuff, but obviously couldn't ever finish the whole bowl. We were so excited. We could still work on the spoon technique and he was more satisfied after meals. Yeah!!
So if you child is still not able to keep solids down keep trying new combinations. Hopefully, something will work. If not, I've heard from plenty of people that it's okay. They will eat just fine after the palate is fixed. Bauer usually likes the oatmeal not too thick, but not too soupy. Sounds like a very general measurement, but that's the best way to put it.

Bauer looks like the oatmeal is working for him either way... by wearing it or eating it! What a big boy! God certainly has brought you all a long way, I know this is a big week for your family. My thoughts and prayers are with you all!
