I wish I’d known what I know now back when I was starting solid foods with my first baby…
force-feeding rice cereal from a spoon, mealtime meltdowns and feeling like an ultimate failure as a mom was not fun.
Fast forward 9 years and now as a mom of 7, college nutrition professor and Registered Dietitian specializing in infant feeding and baby-led weaning, I can tell you one thing for certain: your baby can eat SO MANY MORE foods than you could ever imagine! And here’s the kicker: you can actually have fun and ENJOY this next stage of your baby’s development at the same time too.
Parents and caregivers are more confused and more overwhelmed than ever when it comes to this next transition in their baby’s life. My mission is to help families give their babies a safe start to solid foods using baby-led weaning all while taking the guesswork and stress out of starting solid foods.
If your baby is getting ready to start solid foods but YOU aren’t feeling entirely ready yet, I am here to help. Just like you, I want your baby to enjoy food. I know how to make that happen (safely) and I want you to be happy and to finally enjoy feeding your baby.
Maybe you have an older child and you’re struggling with picky eating…or you’re a first time mom just looking for a straight-forward, step-by-step approach to starting solid foods safely. Regardless of where you’re coming from, we are headed in the same direction: helping you raise an independent eater who likes and accepts a wide variety of foods.
No more mealtime battles, no short-order cooking, no stressing that your baby “isn’t getting enough” or fear about allergic reactions or anxiety about choking on food. This brand new video workshop is the culmination of the top things I’ve learned having now helped tens of thousands of families give their babies a safe start to solid foods.
Your baby is a blank slate. RIGHT NOW you have the opportunity to help build your baby’s healthy relationship with food. That starts with your baby’s first bites…and having the confidence to offer your baby a wide variety of foods and flavors and tastes and textures is EVERYTHING in ensuring your family has a successful foray into starting solid foods.
