We have to scrape any extra oil off his plate and feed it to him. Tonight, he started crying about 5 minutes after dinner saying "My mouth is still oily! It won't get out of my mouth! ". We are trying different recipes to keep the oil from coating his mouth.
The diet is going a lot smoother now. We have recipes for some of Owen's favorite foods, and I've been able to make some things in advance. I'm still spending a LOT of time in the kitchen, and I'm struggling with feeding Owen and the rest of the family. Owen is happier if we all eat similar things at the same time, but I think it's going to be a while before that happens regularly. Our biggest challenge this week has been getting the baking soda in him. The keto team wants him to get 1t. of baking soda a day to counter acidosis, but adding it to his food made everything taste HORRIBLE (yes, I checked). I asked advice on the keto yahoo group and found that most parents added to a drink instead. Now we are giving him his baking soda twice a day in water with a couple of drops of flavored stevia and he's taking it great. I've been told that the first month of the diet is the hardest. I can say it's getting easier already. A few more weeks and we should be a lot more comfortable.
