Hey beautiful!
I have a few questions about your Ekkie since my baby is so young & doesn't sound like any other Ekkie's I've heard about. I've been trying to accustom him to water since he was about 7 weeks old, but he really doesn't like showering. He has a shower perch and loves hanging out on it, but when I try to pick him up and just get his feet a little wet, he shys away. The last few days he refuses to let go of the perch, and I sure don't want to force him! Another issue is his eating preferences. I've been handfeeding him since 4 1/2 wks, but have daily offered a wide variety of foods, including fruit and veggies. He refuses to eat Kiwi, which I thought was a fruit universally loved by Ekkies, and will barely eat any other fruits & veggies preferring his Zupreem pellets. Since he's almost 16 wks, I want to nip any potential diet related problems in the bud, but I'm at a loss as to what to try next. Any suggestions?
thanks
