I have a 15 month old who has decided too go through a picky phase. And he refuses too eat almost everything we put in front of him. What are somethings you give your L.O. That they love too eat??
And also how much is ok to feed a baby of that age in breakfast, lunch, dinner? Sometimes I feel like I feed my baby too much but he never let me know when is full, generally I give him 4 oz of fruits or veggies (or 2 and 2 oz of beans) and a 2 oz of protein, with bread, crackers or chesse, even after that he can ask for his bottle of milk. I'm scared of offering more food beacause I feel t... More
My step mother is from China and they do not traditionally use baby food. Their baby breast fed and later just ate regular food (very soft to start ie overcooked rice, boiled veggies, small bites of shredded chicken). Our first baby is 3 mo tomorrow so we’re still a ways out, but I just wondered...how did you introduce “real” food? Traditional baby jars, homemade, or smushy (like my dad/step... More
Hi, I'm concerned I'm doing something wrong in transitioning to solids with breastfeeding... My LO will nurse (usual/typical schedule) at 630a, eat solids by 730, then nurse again 1030, eat by 1130, nurse 230, solids at 430, then nurse at 6 or 630... does this seem right? Or any suggestions on how to make this transition? First time mom just following babys hunger cues...
My son is 11 months and he eats about 3 (4oz) pouches of baby pureed food and nurses about 4-5 x a day. I was telling my husband that the purees is all fruits and could be too much sugar for him but my husband keeps saying it’s healthy sugar. I’m too nervous to start real food, we do here and there we give eggs or rice anything soft and easy to chew.
Will be starting my son on solids soon. I was considering making his baby food, but have heard the taste doesn’t always turn out well, and it causes kiddos to be picky in the future. Anyone have experience with homemade foods? Or prefer store bought?
We’ll be starting our LO on food soon and was wondering what supplies were most helpful to have in advance? The best spoons to have? Are special bowls necessary? As far as actual food is concerned, I figure it’ll likely be trial & error haha :)
My 11.5 month old breastfeeds regularly, like every hour and 1/2 awake, and nurses to sleep and throughout the night. Sometimes when I feel particularly lazy ( or exhausted is probably a better word.. lets be honest I am numero uno on call all the time 24/7 no breaks when it comes to this parenting thing), I don't offer food that day really, just puffs and melts because I don't feel lik...

My 2 year old used to eat veggies and fruit fine but for about 1 year not he wont ear anything wet or juicy. He is a big salty crunchy lover but feeling him a carrot turns into torture. I've tried preparing them differently and he still wont give it a try.
My baby girl is almost 1 and I have tried a lot of different things puréed and baby lead weaning options and she just seems to be so picky. She would like one thing and then the next time I give it to her she wants nothing to do with it. I don’t know if maybe I am making it wrong or mixing things together wrong but this child will not eat the way I would like her to, I don’t like to force her t... More
Looking for recommendations on baby food makers. We have an almost 6 month old ready to start eating!! So many options out there from baby bullet, baby brezza, infantino, beaba, babymoov,...its like getting a stroller all over again(ugh). What do you moms recommend?
He grabs and puts anything in front of him into his mouth, but hardly swallows anything. Meal times get so messy because it's just chewed up food everywhere. So in the end, I give him a puree pouch because he will at least drink that. Should we be worried or is this a phase? And he also hates getting fed with a spoon. Just wants to play with it.
She has good swallow, opens her mouth for first or second bite but then keeps mouth closed after than. Tried different brands, made our own tried different consistencies... she is breastfed and I try to feed her when she seems hungry and fresh from a nap, obviously she gets all her nutrition from breastmilk so not worried just looking for suggestions :)
No milk, no food Good news My 22m old self is weaning off her nap and bedtime bottle Bad news She’s already an Uber picky eater, and this doesn’t seem to have expanded her appetite for more food. Just less milk! What’s more, she’s noticing what others eat at the playground and that chips and snacks are much nicer than the food I make for her at home. I make healthy snacks too, but these...
