A kid who's had 4 teeth pulled?

Two on top... Two on bottom!

He goes in tomorrow around 230p...

I'd like to have stuff in the house for him to eat....

Ideas?

My brother had major dental work done and was on liquids for 2 months at a time, every 8 months, for 5 years. My mom put whatever she was already making in the blender.

Blended spaghetti.

When I had my wisdom teeth removed, I ate chips and salsa in my anesthesia induced haze. Probably not the best idea. I'd say baby food, oatmeal, pudding, pureed foods...

Sounds like what I was thinking...

Is Pedisure a good idea?

Had surgery Friday, all I feel like eating is yogurt, bananas, chopped up apples and tea and pb/j sarnies.

Ouch no chips or nuts!

Thank heavens for painkillers.

I had all four wisdom teeth pulled out when I was 18. I was fine for about 30 hours. Then I got sick.... super super sick... I couldn't eat anything at all for about 2 days.

I would say keep bland foods and clear liquids on hand. The anesthesia and meds may make him ill and thus he isn't game to eat anything. Or, he may feel fine and be hungry and just need things easy on jaw. Follow his lead and assume that whatever you have on hand, he won't eat.

The others have said it all, soft and clear foods at first. The other thing is not to drink through a straw. I got dry socket after having my wisdom teeth out because I drank a milkshake that was hard to suck through the straw. Super painful.

Yogurt and jello.

And for some reason my DD was dying for McDonald's pancakes afterwards. After the first day that was how she transitioned back to regular food. She ate them 4 days in a row in teeny tiny bites, chewing with her front teeth!

Definitely no sucking through a straw!

I wanted chicken noodle soup after my tooth extractions- I had 4 wisdom teeth extracted one day. It was the Lipton's box kind.

Basically give him what he wants, within reason. If he wants and feels up to soft foods, then see how he does...if he just wants clears or full liquid type stuff (clears=anything you can see through, full liquid=any type of liquid), then give him that. He's old enough to kinda gauge what he can handle As previously mentioned, no straws...I'm pretty sure you don't have to worry about him smoking, so no worries there Pediasure would be fine, if he wants it and will drink it (((DS & jrc)))

I got him popsicles on the off chance he'd want those... plus I thought the cold might feel good.

My daughter had multiple oral surgeries, she had what we call shark syndrome. LOL.

Anyway she always preferred popsicles, and frozen yougart. She also would drink juices, and gatorade.
Usually a day out she would advance to applesauce, cottage cheese, and oatmeal. By day three eating regular soft food, but still eating a lot of ice cream too.

If it's wisdom teeth then each kid is different. I had mine and couldn't eat solid food for 2 weeks. I lost 10 pounds. I had a best friend get his removed, and he was eating real food the same day.

Good luck.

Pudding, Jello, Soups, Mashed potatoes, oatmeal...

becareful about using a straw for anything, you dont want to pull stitches or pull out the clot.

I second the Ensure's or the Pediasure's...they will help get him the vitamins and stuff that he would normally get from his normal diet.

My ds just had his 4 wisdom teeth out - he had horrible vomiting afterwards due to the iv sedation - so all day the day of surgery, he didn't eat anything. After that I gave him Muscle Milk (protein shakes) and applesauce - he was also allowed any liquid he could keep down. LOTS of swelling for a few days and even today still has a black eye! He did move on to pudding, soups and fruit smoothies from McDs - and yeah, no to the straws! Hope all is well for your ds!

We are home.

He did well... they ended up just pulling the teeth (extraction) and didn't have to do any cutting or sutures.

No straws tonight and he can eat whatever he feels like eating.

They took two molars on top and two on the bottom... the ones right next to the canines.

They gave me an Rx for Tylenol 3... but said he probably won't need it.

Last night he had a smoothie (ate it with a spoon) and some chocolate pudding.

Today he had Instant Breakfast and yogurt... Not sure what he ate at school... but they had pasta, so he probably ate that.

He won't be home for another 1.5 hours... So I'll find out how he's doing. He didn't text or call me today so he must be doing ok.
