At least in our house, these things are like crack for babies.
And I mean no disrespect to the fine folks at Gerber; we love this product.
They're like "melt-in-your-mouth" cereal, which is great for babies learning how to feed themselves. (However, when they melt, apparently they cross the blood-brain barrier, and stimulate the "pleasure center" in the brain, thereby reinforcing the need for (continuous) Puffs.
To paraphrase the Corn Pops jingle:
Bab-E Brother's 'gotta have his Puffs'.
To paraphrase the New Kids on the Block:
"You got the right Puffs, Bab-E. Oh, oh, oh-oh-oh. Oh, oh, oh-oh. Oh, oh, oh-oh-oh. The right Puffs."
To paraphrase the movie Rain Man:
I've had to leave a restaurant before to go to a grocery store (fortunately it was next door) to make an emergency Puffs run after leaving them at home. (5 minutes to Puffs. 5 minutes to Puffs.)
If he is sitting in his high chair with no Puffs in sight, Bab-E Brother uses a loud shrieking sound as a
Strike that, sometimes just to get him to sit in the high chair, you have to bribe him with Puffs.
And Cheerios are NOT a suitable substitute for Puffs. If you put a mixture of Puffs and Cheerios on his tray, that little booger will (like lightning) pick out only the Puffs to eat.
(Maybe we could put him in charge of sorting all the socks in the laundry.)
Fortunately, we are finally starting to branch out a little from Puffs to bananas and other table food.
Anyone know a good Puffs detox programs?
Have a good week,
