Reply to 13 month old on puree pouches

I use reusable pouches and make my own pumpkin yogurt/smoothies or fruit sauces to put in them. The pouches are a great way to squeeze extra nutrition in without the mess, and are easily transportable. All my kids use them, and my oldest is coming up in turning age 5. I think if you rely on them to the point where your kid doesn’t get a chance to practice self feeding or chewing, that’s a problem but you certainly aren’t in that situation. It sounds like your doing the best balance you can! Your doing a good job.
