    Default Weight loss

    Dibble has worked herself down to acceping formula about once every other day. She is loosing weight quickly. I expected some weight loss, but she is loosing so quickly is does concern me. I offer the approved/suggested diet of HHB (2), veggies (1/4cup mixed) plus nappa cabbage ( a favorite), endive, escarole daily. She also gets two wild bites block, 1-2 pieces of fruit (small 1/2 inch), and 2 nuts and rose hips. Most days she eats well, but there are usually leftover veggies and greens, wild bites. I also give 1-2 pieces wheat chex cereal twice a week.

    I've ordered Oxbow.

    Does anyone have experiences to share?

    It sounds like her diet is excellent! The only thing I would caution you about is giving Wild Bites as treats. Two of them have the same nutritional value as 2 of the regular HHBs so you don't want to over supplement her by giving twice the recommended amount. You can give more of the healthy veggies for sure. Sweet potato adds weight, as does avocado. Do you give those to her?

    She will not eat avocado regularly. She doesn't like messy hands. She LOVES sweet potato and I give it about every other day. Could I give her a piece daily? I am really bothered by the weight loss....even though I know it is weaning related.

    Improving.... Eating the Oxbow as a supplement to veggies. Introduced some Artichoke leaves and that seemed positive.
