"What do I start with?"
Are you thinking cereal? Or been told to start there then move onto vegetables and fruits? Could that actually harm your baby’s iron status? I’ll share lots more on that.
“Why bother making homemade food?"
"It’s quick and easy to buy those pouches and jars.” I know you are sleep deprived and may not know what to do, but might your effort now shape her tastes for life? Avoid the picky eater stage? I’ll share all about this and more!
"How much food is enough?"
"As in what’s too little or too much food. He just wants to keep eating.” Some babies don’t have an off switch and others need coaxing to open their mouth. I’ll share what to do in both cases.
