On day 76, I indulged in the unthinkable. I allowed our baba to spoon-feed my daughter at every meal.
My daughter was never a good eater. The child would request ice as a snack. So my husband and I spent a lot of time shoveling food into her mouth while she was distracted by things like television. Yes, I know this is wrong. But is everyone familiar with the term “last resort?”
We finally got to a point where she was feeding herself. But yesterday, day 76, I had too many things to do. So I let nature take its course like a good Brazilian.
I see the impact of Brazilian children being over-served. I don’t want that for mine. But will one day make a difference?
