When you prop up 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!
Once your baby is 6 months or almost sitting up by himself, introduce a new food to him every 3 days. Every time you open a new jar, you open a whole new world of healthy possibilities. Yum!
After your baby has mastered veggies, move on to some yummy pureed fruits. They’re so healthy for him, and you are giving him a great head start!
Now that your child has transitioned to solids, stick with veggies, fruits, and water to keep them growing strong. You’re laying the groundwork for a really strong, healthy child with habits that last a lifetime!
After 6 months, try a new fruit every 3-5 days. That’s enough time to know if your baby loves it or not, or if she’s allergic. You’re a mom with a good plan!
There are so many good pureed veggies for your baby to try. Sweet potatoes, squash, carrots and more, so try making your own. Be a daring and a darling Mom!
Juice isn’t a must, but if you choose to give your baby juice do so after 6 months. Always use a cup, not a bottle, and a few sips is plenty (2 ounces). A little goes a long way, sweet Mommy!
When he spits out the nipple, seals his lips shut, or pushes the bottle away, he’s finished eating. Phew! Well done, Mom!
Giving your baby cereal too early throws off her ability to know what “full” is. Cereal comes when your baby is 5-6 months old. Be patient and wait for the right time. Your baby will benefit greatly.
