Slow Life Down

Posted by | 0 to 5 Months, Infant | No Comments

Moms are so busy and it’s easy to prop the bottle. Slow life down. When you prop a bottle for your baby while doing other things, you miss out on deepening your bond. So take a time out and enjoy your baby.

Cereal 101

Posted by | 0 to 5 Months, Breastfeeding, Feeding, Infant | No Comments

There is a myth that cereal in the bottle will help babies sleep. It simply isn’t true. Cereal shouldn’t be added to your baby’s bottle because her digestive track isn’t ready for it in the early months. She will be ready for cereal when she is almost sitting up by herself (around 6 months) and her cereal should always be delivered in a spoon.

No Hurry, Mom!

Be the healthy-minded mom you want to be and wait until your baby is about 6 months to introduce cereal to her. Giving your baby cereal too early can cause her problems later; problems like obesity or food allergies. Time will go by and you will be proud that you waited.

For the 1st year, your baby should be drinking breastmilk or formula. Offering other kinds of milk, such as whole milk, soy milk, or reduced fat milk, too early could cause severe dehydration. Thanks, Mom!
