No More Mrs. NiceMommy

LP is now almost 16 months old. I thought it would be a nice mommy thing to do to introduce her to juice. Up until now she has only imbibed on milk and water. Since she doesn't drink as much as I would like, I thought that adding a little bit of apple juice to her water would make satisfying her thirst more satisfying.

I was absolutely right. For the last couple of days she would drink 8 ounces of equal parts juice and water at least once a day. The Hoos and I were thrilled that LP was getting more hydration.

Nothing can ever be that easy...

Apparently LP likes apple juice, but apple juice doesn't like LP. Or maybe it likes LP but it likes to torture the people that have to change her diapers. I won't go into details, but I think we will be cutting back on the juice. Maybe three parts water to one part juice and even that will be limited.

I guess the moral of the story is, even if mommies are supposed to know best, they need to do research too. Trial and error counts as research.

and the upside is... if the baby ever happens to get constipated you've got the cure ... no nurse practitioners needed.
