My bottomless pit

In one sitting, she's eating:

1/2 a chicken salad sandwich
1 small potatoe with becel
1 Tbsp of peas
1/3 jar of pears
2 oz of cheese
then stealing pieces of my meatloaf and inhaling it like crazy.

I was so alarmed at the amount she was eating, I took the food away.

Could she possibly have a tapeworm? I don't understand where she's putting all this food...

shes on a growing spurt.

her body needs fuel.

I bet it would be helpful to a baby like her to give them a teaspoon of non-animal protein powder (there is a great vegan rice based one) and mix it in with some yogurt.I say non-animal because the methanogens in the intestine thrive on the animalbased ones....hence the extra gas.

also by the smae token i bet flax oil would be good for a baby at that stage,good omegas there.

Hmm, what's in the protein powder (specifically) and what brand/where can it be bought?

Yes, the flax oil is definitely something for her to start eating anytime soon. As it is, we're ensuring she's getting canola oil, olive oil, and she loves fish.

Haven't gotten around to buying the flax oil yet though. I can't actually remember seeing it in the grocery store. Maybe it's in a different section.

nutribiotic vegan rice protein

http://www.vitacost.com/NutriBioticVeganRiceProteinPowder i've seen vitamin shoppee carry it too.

its a lot of protein for a very small sering size relative to any other protein powder i've ever seen. (15g per heaping table spoon). no,it doesnt taste the best but can be easily masked, that's why I suggest yogurt or apple sauce or soemthign if not just in a sweetened drink of some type.
