I'm not sure what I expect writing the story here. I know our baby is healthy and strong but... I feel bad. I feel this way because of the fresh experience I had with our vegetarian au pair. She was staying with as for about three months and we did not have problems or at least I thought so. Suddenly on Sunday last week she started saying that I do not give enough food to my baby. She also started picking on me for breast feeding. She said that in her age (9,5 months) she can not be only on breast milk (she's not by the way) and she started giving me examples of vegan/vegetarian babies who died because of their parents negligence. Here is the link which she has sent me: http://whatstheharm.net/childvegetarianism.html
Looking at my baby I know she is healthy however I was preoccupied after all that conversation. I went to her room asking if she maybe can see some worring symptoms which I don't see. She said that she can not see any symptoms but my baby can have some problems in the future. Then I really didn't know what she was about. I told our au pair that if she is a girl doesn't mean that she has to be raped.
What can I say about our baby? She is 9,5 months and she is very active, she's running everywhere with our help, she's just hanting our hands because she still can not walk an her own and she crawls only if we ignore her demands for too long. She is a little chubby. She is still breast fed but she eat's solids as well. First in the morning (still sleeping) she's breast fed, as soon as she wakes up she has some muesli with me with vegan soya milk (for adults), then she always has something to chew either an apple, cucumber or carrot. About 12.30 I come home for lunch and breast feed her again. While I'm at work she eats some buiscuits with soya formula milk. In the evening about 7pm we have a dinner and most of the time she eats something with us (not much about two three spoons). About 8pm she would go to sleep while breast feeding. She eats at night too, sometimes few times.
Is it possible that she is malnurished even she looks well and has no developmental problems?
