Feeding Your Child: Extreme Methods

If you have a child you may recall how hard it was to make them swallow their first baby food. This is our friends' baby daughter. I took the liberty of taking some macros of the feeding act. I have never seen such stubborn child before. No wonder her mother had to use the pacifier to push the food into her mouth and stop her from spitting it. I guess patience is a must in cases like this. You can try singing, chasing her mouth from left to right, calling your spoon names of well known cartoon characters like Tweety, Mickey, imitating sounds of every mean of transportation you know of, trains, motorbikes, etc. You can act like a clown or simply make use of this extreme method, using the pacifier as a stopper. Here are some real tips to feed your child.


  1. That is an amazing macro demonstration. Almost doesn't look human, but then we are just animals after all!

    Perhaps the baby was not ready to eat "solid" food.

    Colors are fantastic.

  7. Gloubiboulga !

    Jusqu'à la dernière miette !

  8. LOL. Thanks. Till the last crumb. Oui. Sorry about not writing in French. I found that the first expression "Gloubiboulga !" has to do with a dinosaur called Casimir and his special "gateau" or cake in some TV program for kids. Interesting :)
