Feedings

Twins are one now..any suggestions on meals? They only have two top and four bottom teeth. I also tried the vitamin do milk the poop smell is horrific, runs runs runs. And now they are gasey and wake up every few hours. Do you feed vegetable, meat, and fruit as a meal. Taking suggestions.

    Sounds like they have lactose intolerance. No more cows milk-try almond instead, it has more calcium anyway. No cheese or anything with 'lactose' or 'cassein' in the ingredients. I feed my one year old a smaller, mushier, cut up version of whatever we eat. Veggies are overcooked and chopped small. I make sure she gets the tender part of the meats and chop small.
