Silas’s modified eating schedule seems to be working!
He hasn’t eaten one blade of grass or turned down one meal since we started feeding him three times a day. This is still a 100% approved foods diet–turkey and sardines–but I’m excited. We’d been really struggling even with those foods for the last month or so.
Also, I’ve learned that he will eat raw sardines, retail price $1.99/lb. This is a big deal. I knew that sardines were an approved food because we did his initial allergy trial with Primal’s Turkey and Sardine formula. Canned sardines are very expensive, though, at something like $2.99-$3.99 for a three ounce container of what I usually buy for myself.
He’s still convinced that he’s starving, but he’s bringing in fewer rocks and sticks.
It’s early to give a final verdict, but very promising. I’ll probably add some other protein source in next week.
