  • What is Baby Led Weaning? Should I do it with my Baby?

    I had no idea what baby led was with my first born child in 2009. I thought I was pretty “hippie” with my breastfeeding on demand, cloth diapers, and probably completely wrong babywearing tactics. (I learned how to properly babywear after meeting wonderful babywearing mamas who sent me tutorials and information.) I knew enough to steer clear from rice cereal and the whole “cereal” experience, as our birth classes covered it a touch and I researched it further on my own. But for some reason, when people said, “You can skip the baby food.” I felt like they were crazy. I mean you HAVE to do baby food, right? It’s like a right of passage.

  • Baby’s First Foods

    I remember counting down the days until my first baby was 6 months old. I was staying at home, taking approximately 236 pictures of my amazing infant per day, and could not wait to introduce a new element into our daily lives: REAL FOOD.

    As you all know, I am a huge breastfeeding advocate. I believe (and research shows) that breastmilk is the best source of nutrients for babies up until a year of age, and exclusively for the first 6-9 months. But once your baby shows an interest in food and is at least 6 months of age, it is go time! I immediately assumed that you HAD to purchase jarred organic mystery foods. However, when I opened the first jar and realized I was about to feed my child something I wouldn’t eat myself; I trashed it and donated the rest. It was homemade baby food for my girl. Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure there are a few real organic jarred foods that have ZERO preservatives, fillers, and dyes, but it is just so much easier to make your own!

  • Say “NO” to Baby Cereal

    A baby should never have “cereal.” He shouldn’t have it as a first food; she should not have it as a “thickening agent” added to a bottle to help her sleep through the night. It should not be added to a bottle to help an infant with reflux. Cereal has absolutely no good purpose in a baby’s body.

    We wonder why people are addicted to sugars and starches, but yet the past 50 years, babies have been introduced to a rice cereal as their first food. It is engrained in us.
