My mom passed this on to me, because she knew how true it was for our house too. So I have to share it with you all. It is a funny little post from another micro-preemie who like my micropreemie toddler, hates to eat and keeps food in his cheek.
I have found things in Kate's mouth that I did not know could stay in a mouth that long without dissolving. Her favorite stock pile is usually fruit peices. Apple has a very long staying power. I make her show me empty mouth for a lot of things (a dramatic AWW! by her). I envision we will be doing it when I drop her off at college.
I am always just glad to hear and read about these things so that I know my evening, morning (heck all the time) battles are not really alone.
