    Default What not approved foods has your babies talked you into?

    I am just curious.... what no no foods has your babies talked you into giving them. I know we are not supposed to give them food that's not on the list but I am sure there has been at least once you let them nibble something forbidden! Tootsie talked me into giving her a tiny piece of noodle. A couple weeks ago she had a tiny corner of a cool ranch dorito... I know it's bad but it was just a morsel. I was just wondering what everyone else's babies have got away with!

    Seymour loves my Belvita breakfast crackers. I give him a small chunk but there have been times where he takes off with the whole package and I have to chase him down. Hes very vocal about it.

    My little flying squirrel Laz gets a tiny little morsel of Breyers All Natural Vanilla ice cream about once a week and he loves it more than life itself! He has learned to leave it in the spoon and just lick it down though his first attempt had him trying to hold it in his little paws like a nut and juggling it from paw to paw because it was COLD!! Now. when he sees a spoon he nearly turns himself inside out!

    Well, I must confess. I break all the rules with my little dwarf, Joey. When he was very sick and we went to see Dr. Emerson she said that I should feed Joey whatever he would eat. He was very underweight at the time and as most dwarfs are, hes a notoriously picky eater. So, I have tried all the good stuff. He wont touch it. He only eats sugar snap peas and mushrooms ....occasionally, and chicken regularly. But sometimes he eats a small amount of puffed Cheetos, cheese, cereal, sour cream potato chips and butter. These are the things that he can and will eat by himself. His nutrition comes from the ground Harlan block and an assortment of baby food veggies that I mix with formula and syringe feed him about 5 times a day. Hes over two years old and still doing well, so I dont deviate from whats worked.

    Sammy loves goldfish and little Debbie brownies. But Ill tell you his favorite thing in the world to eat.....chapstick! Yup, chapstick! My son keeps a tube on his desk in his room. If I forget to close the door and turn my back on him for two seconds, he puts a hole in the lid, pulls it off and GOES TO TOWN! WHY?!?

    Frankie has been crazy about vanilla cupcakes since he managed to steal his first taste of one. He tore open the cover on their container while my back was turned and I found him tucked into in the corner with his back to me trying to shovel an entire cupcake into his mouth! Boy did I get an earful trying to take it back!! Now, he throws a tantrum whenver he sniffs out that I have any in the house.

    As a rehabber I don't have any free-ranging squirrels so my guys get what I give them, but way back when I did have the very first little "pet" squirrel guy who got me into all this, he was addicted to Oysterette crackers. Yup, those hexagon-shaped salty things you get at seafood restaurants with your clam chowder? He was a sweet squirrel but he'd happily kill you for your Oysterette

    There's no playing when it comes to Sammy and his chap stick!! You even look at him with it and he freezes. You take one tiny little step toward him and he's FUSSING!!! If you start walking toward him, he's off like a bolt making me chase him. He's more vicious over chap stick than any nut he's ever had!

    Yes! Frances ate a Burt's Bees chap stick in the blink of an eye. The only thing I could use was lip carmex which is gross and they didn't try to eat. I agree, WHY??

    Frances and Basil went ape**** over tortilla chips. I think it's the salt and oil. Oh, and the jar of coconut oil, which thankfully is glass and metal and they could never get in.

    Sammy never bites either. He hollers, fusses, squeals, squeaks, slaps, and sometimes scratches a little but never bites unless its playfully. Unless you count feet that is.

    I had such a great time reading these threads. keep them comming... it's nice to read fun happy stuff too. I don't have a bad food story to add but there have been a few times my boy got a hold of a ink pen and seriously protested me taking it away. I think it's cute when they fuss, chatter, and slap at you.. as long as they don't rip off your fingers, lol
