Skinny Zara

After starving herself and survived only on breast milk for 4 days (Fri, Sat, Sun, Mon) , she finally regained her appetite, and started eating (solids) again today. Her had lots of biscuits, bread and half a bowl of porridge. I normally limit her intake of biscuits (worried about constipation), however, today I told my maid to give as many as she wanted, as long as she is eating them. As for her porridge dinner, the food critic refused to be fed using her usual kiddy spoon, turning her head to the side when the spoon reached her. She kept pointing to the chopstick nearby. So, I tried with chopstick and she happily took them. It's not easy to scoop up runny porridge with chopstick, luckily my chopstick skill is quite good, and I managed. For an already relatively thin toddler, she is now even thinner. Her ribs are jutting out now! Her stool has hardened although still a bit soft, and she'd stopped vomiting. She's recovering! I'll try to fatten the next few days.

My sister always tell me his son never eat well like my son. But now boy, he is fat with a big stomach.

Haha...I am sure Zara will be fine with a caring mommy like u. :P

momm said...

whenever my girl falls sick, she'd have no appetite and would be as skinny as a bamboo stick.

but once she recovers she'd eat and eat, and she ballooned to her usual self. in fact, she looked better each time she recovers from a flu!

i was told that when a child recovers, they grow bigger faster. not obese, but they look very healthy!

Let it be, let it be, let it be.

jeferrene,
not too skinny is ok. Now she's a bit too skinny, so needs to fatten her a bit. :P

byrdie,
I hope what you say is true. But yesterday and today, she has been really eating a lot. Everything also wants MORE!
Btw, do you have a blogsite as well? I can't seem to get to you via your profile.

maria,
Anabelle thinner than Isabelle? Or you mean her eating character?

mother superior,

Gordon is also thin now after his poo session. But as long as he's regained his appetite, he'll put on some weight soon. Same goes for zara.

Annie said...

ky said...

Hooray! Zara is recovering :)

Zara's Mama said...

Samm,
Yes, hope Gordon and Zara will regain their weight soon.

Annie,
Actually a nurse I know in Sunway medical (used to give Zara baby massage) told me I should mix a spoon of minyak bawang in Zara's porridge to fatten her. But.. 1 spoon of oil.. so jelat, i didn't do it la.

Jesslyn,
Zara tall because Daddy is tall. He's a 6footer. Not sure when she's grown up, how tall will it be, just hope not as tall as Daddy or else hard to get husband. :P

KY,
Thank you thank you. :P

My sister's son is now in primary one. He used to be very skinny like my son. When they breath in, I can count how many rib bones are there.
