Now that my baby is 9 months old. (yikes!) I thought I would share a few of my tips and tricks for feeding the little guy.
Disclaimer: Everyone has their own ideas about feeding their baby, these are just my suggestions and what has worked for me. As a Mom, please do whatever you feel is best for you and your baby.
I make my own Baby Food. Yes, I do! It is super easy and works the best for me and my schedule (a.k.a LIFE) I mash my own bananas, buy regular applesauce and cook my own carrots. Since I am already feeding "normal" food to my two older boys I just lump the third one in as well.
When I had my first baby, traditional Gerber baby food was too expensive on our tight family budget so I just improvised and made my own: mashed potatoes, peaches, raisins. It worked so well, I have never looked back. All my boys, to this day, are great eater, they aren't picky and just about any food makes them happy.
I follow doctor's instructions and don't give them any milk products or meat until they are one years old and I do try and really limit their sugar intake, but honestly with two older brothers they are always slipping Henry something sweet.
Happy Wednesday, Enjoy the summertime!!
