Eating

Obi eats about 1/2 cup of food a day, at least thats what i put out for him, but he doesn't eat most of it usually. For the last 2 days he has been eating barely anything so i put baby food in his food and he ate it all up. By doing this, will it make him picky so he wont want to eat his food without it? Also, he poops about 3 or 4 times a day which doesn't make sense because i dont even think he eats enough food to make that much. Im afraid he is getting to skinny. Right now he seems to be at a healthy weight and looks like a good weight but im still worried. Also, is him pooping that much normal?? Thanks everyone!

Jack has always pooped 3-4 times a day...

I just thought that was normal!

Cindy, what food is he on? I've always heard that they poop the number of times they are fed. Premium food is absorbed better so they poop less and it is firm and has no smell. At least that is the case with K & C.

I dont know if freezing baby food is ok, maybe you could call the company and ask.  I did this with Phoebe's canned food at one point.  I'd waste more than half of a can by the time she'd eat, so I'd open one, and I'd freeze the rest in those new ziploc or whatever cups, and thaw them as I needed.  

Eventually I got her off of that though, and shes fine on just her kibbles.   She has never had a problem eating.  She used to be on Artemis, and now shes on Innova Evo, which is no grain. 


K\Cs mom, I am jealous if theres no smell because that is not the case with princess here on any of these foods... she is a tomboy through and through!  As she looks at me, *burp*  huh?

Yep, it's true... no smelly poops!! Both of mine go on pads in the laundry room and there just isn't any discernable smell. They both eat only Newman's, even for treats. If I'm eating an apple or lettuce, I'll give them some because they go nuts for it. They each have two small BM's a day and that's it.
