Pasta/Noodles

I noticed the "check in" thread that a lot of babes are eating noodles...so I'm wondering what exactly you're feeding them and how you cook them?

My concern with attempting pasta is that it's so slippery it'll become frustrating (as was our experience with bananas yesterday)...any tips? Do you over cook it so that it's really mushy? What kind of noodles (ie rotini, spaghetti, etc.) do you cook?

Sully will eat any kind of noodle (without too much frustration), but I find the spiral to be the easiest. I just chop each noodle once or twice. I usually put a little spaghetti sauce or italian dressing on them.

Oh and I just cook them to normal softness, not overcooked.

I mainly use the spiral noodles as well... I over cook them though and leave them whole...

Alice is eating anything we eat. Tonight we had shells with tomato sauce. But she's has tagletelli and spaghetti too, and I don't even cut those up much anymore. She just grabs and jams them in her mouth!

I heard a tip somewhere about things like bananas being slippery, you could roll them in some sort or powder (can't remember what, maybe ground up cornflakes?) and that made them easier to grab. Haven't tried it myself, Alice isn't having problems with things most of the time.

We are pretty boring over here...LOL... we just give him whatever noodles we are eating, but plain, with nothing on them. Sometimes I coat them with crushed up cheerios so that he can grab them better! (That works really well for bananas, too!)

I really feel behind, I havent tried pasta really. I checked online and it said between 10-12 months so I havent tried... Thank goodness for you ladies, I am going to give pasta a try once little man cuts his teeth and feels better.

I still don't think she's actually eaten much of them, but I have offered rotini, spaghetti, and egg noodles. I cut them into smaller pieces, since she's not the best at chewing her food... but I'm pretty sure most of it ends up on the floor and in the dogs mouth!

Thanks everyone! I will give it a go today I think.

Cheerios for bananas is a great idea Smile
