What’s in that mush?

For the most part, The Tiny is mostly eatin’ finger foods.  Steamed broccoli heads, cooked eggs, fruit, green beans, black beans, etc.

“Excuse me sir, but I did not order see-food.  Close that mouth!”

But, we still make an oatmeal-y mush for him to eat at least once a day.  Sometimes we even stick it in a suction cupped pirate bowl and give him the spoon.  He does pretty well.  Unless he’s starving.  This one time I gave him his spoon and he threw it, while instead mashing two chubby fists into the mush and shoving both fistfuls into his mouth.  Yes, apparently that day I was starving my child.

But what is in that mush, you ask?

First is the Happy Bellies Oatmeal.  We love it because it’s cheap and has probiotics.  I swear this is the thing that cleared up his thrush..

Next up, a few dropfuls Nordic Natruals DHA fish oils.  I love giving him this.  We used to give him three full syring-fuls in his mouth, and he would drink it down like it was sweet candy.  I assumed it must be flavored or something, so one day I tried it.  It is legit fish oil.  Oil, tasting like fish.  Needless to say, I was grossed out.  That little happy baby FOOLED ME!  Sheesh.

After that, we shake on some brewers yeast flakes.  I bought it in bulk at the local health food store, and I was glad we had this shaker that I keep in my pantry for a quick nutrition kick.

We also buy organic, dry black beans, soak them, then mash them up inside the porridge.

Mush demystified!
