Well, I tried the butter in his food. He didn't seem to mind it. He probably didn't even notice. I put a little bit of butter into his baby food jar of Applesauce and Ham and then put it in the microwave for 30 seconds. It made it really, really hot!!! So I had to wait a little before giving it to him. Even then, I still had to blow on it. He kept laughing at me every time I blew on the spoonful. Then he started blowing too!! So cute!

I still wish that the dietitian would've explained it a little better. Like...

1. How much butter should I put in?
2. Do I put it in every feeding?
3. How long should I microwave it?
4. Should I use a certain type of butter?

I guess I'll have to ask her when we go for our visit at the end of the month.

We still haven't blended any food yet. Our blender broke a long time ago. All we have is a smoothie maker. Not sure if that's going to work. I guess we'll have to go shopping and get a blender. Until then, we'll just keep giving him butter in his food. We still haven't tried the cream yet. One of these days.
PS. Thanks Lori for the great advice about the butter! It worked perfectly except I cooked it too long:)

Sorry should of said only takes like 10-15 secs. Butter-vs-margarine is the better it has more calories. Also the fat is good for the brain development. I added about 1/2 tabblespoon to a whole one for each jar. If you can add more and he will eat it then add more. Also can make infant rice or oatmeal with butter and cream. Whatever you have ever been told to stay away from to loose weight add. If he will dip things and suck off of them let him dip into ranch or sourcream that kind of thing

Glad Lil' Chris did okay with the butter in the baby food! Have you found anything that he can tolerate to drink yet?

Ah the days of butter! I am glad the butter is going well. How did your appointment go last week? Daniel had his annual check up on the 2nd. He did great and they were very happy with his progress. They upped his enzymes so now he takes a 20 Creon and a 10Creon with every meal. Unfortunately Daniel had just started a cold when we went and the cough is still going so I need to call tomorrow and find out if we need to treat it. When you feel up to it, let's get together again with the other moms.

Hello all you CF moms out there. I would just like to personally say a great big "Thank You!" for all your help to my family; M, Big C & Lil C. You will never know how much it means to me. May God richly bless you for your kindness.
M, I am so glad that the butter worked for Lil C. Listen, if you have any questions, even if you think they are dumb, CALL the doctor or dietitian. I have always said, and you know this, "It doesn't hurt to ask!" I'm sure that during their schooling, the doctors and dietitians asked questions.
Love & Miss you guys so much.
Hugs & Kisses for you all and an extra one for Lil C & Baby
Oma (Big C's mom)
