Henry's Homemade Formula

Our journey towards adding "real" foods into Henry's Homemade Blended G-Tube Formula

About Henry’s Mom & Dad

Hi, I’m Shelley… Henry’s mama.

A stay-at-home mom, Henry is my only little guy. I’m married to my wonderful hubby, Shawn and together we live in Burnaby, BC Canada.

I used to work in the Hospitality and Tourism industry, first in hotel management and then teaching at the post-secondary level. I still maintain my connections and education and plan to one day return teaching part-time. Until then, I’m a full-time stay-at-home mom. It was a big adjustment not to have a “career” outside the house (and one I’m still working on) but I’m so glad that we are fortunate enough to be able to do this. Shawn & I both share the priority to stay home with our kids, so make decisions to support this.

As I recent told our pediatrician, as a stay-at-home mom, I have nothing better to do than to learn how to make homemade formula! (not quite true… but it showed my determination to try!).  I’m actually quite enjoying the challenge of learning all I can about making his formula.

Shawn is a software engineer and is currently working on a project focused on hearing aids. His career allows him to work at the office part-time and at home part-time.  He also loves long-distance cycling and just completed his first half-marathon!

While this mission (and I use the term aptly… it sure feels like a mission!) is shared by both of us, I am the one who is taking the lead. This is partly because I am the one who is home full time and partly because this is was my hair-brained idea to begin with! :).

Cheers, Shelley

    hi shelley! i don’t know if we ever ran across each other at either “real food for tubies” (on FB), or the yahoo group (long drama there), but i was googling BD again tonight and came across your blog. first of all, a huge wave from “down” in seattle up to b.c.! second, is there a particular page that i could send people to, who are interested in exploring this whole “real food via tube” universe? i weaned my boy largely thanks to BD and thanks to an attitude that mirrors your “mealtime rules” (and no therapy) — but i’m still heavily involved in the tube-weaning/tube-feeding community, incl. seattle children’s hospital and its change to a child-centered, family-centered, non-behavioral weaning option. i share our BD story with people at tubefedkids.ning.com, and would LOVE to have another place to send interested families to — and your blog is warm, inviting, inspirational, and a treat to read.
    all the best to you and yours and happy 2012~
