Welcome, mama! Does starting solids make you feel like my client, Kate, felt?
Kate told me, “I knew I was supposed to start solids around 6 months, but beyond that I didn’t know much. Starting solids was stressful.
I would read all the jars of baby food in the store hoping to figure something out and those jars determined what foods I introduced to my baby Noah.
And, I thought that his gag reflex meant that he wasn’t ready for solids.
Then my husband kept telling me that Noah wasn’t ready for finger foods because he didn’t have any teeth. Because of all of this, I kept my baby on purees for way too long. And then we needed help from an OT and RD.
I so wish I would have had a guide like this that was easy to read, affordable, and was from a professional. My husband would’ve agreed to follow the advice because it’s from a Registered Dietitian, and I would’ve been a LOT more at ease!”
No matter your parenting style or food philosophy, this guide will work for you
