Starting a wean...wish us luck !

Let the wean begin !!!
     So there is now reason why Joseph can't eat by mouth, other than he won't.  So there in lies the problem.  His weight is good so I am going to see if I can give him a gentle push to eat.  I am going to eliminate his nap time feed of 180 ml of formula and replace it with 120 ml of water (to keep him hydrated).  We started yesterday.  I weighed out food last night (fruit blend) and then weighed it after i had fed him, if you can call it that.  He ate about 4 gm of food.  Today he did better and it seemed to be a little less of a fight.  He had 7 gm of yogurt/fruit blend.  He also was chewing on a sippy cup of apple juice.  I limit the time to 25 minutes for the feeding time and give him rewards for accepting the food in his mouth.  This is going to be a battle of wills, I hope we can get thru this.....
Did you hear the plan ???? 
Pray that I can get this eating thing done !!!
