Wouldn’t it be nice if babies came with an instruction manual? One of the most helpful chapters would be the “What to Feed Me” chapter. First, there are the nagging questions, such as: “Is she getting enough to eat?” or “Is she getting too much?”
With our baby girl who is just over three months old now I have exclusively breastfed her. I always wonder when breastfeeding, as most mamas do I am sure, is she getting enough? She is gaining weight and seems happy and she sleeps well so I have to assume she is fine. With our toddler, he is an extremely picky eater and many times doesn’t want to eat or wants to eat the wrong things so I often wonder if he is getting enough not only enough food, but enough of what he needs in order to be healthy! Feeding children can be a very stressful thing as a parent!
Plus, you have so many choices, and that brings the added stress of making the right decisions for your child’s nutrition. Here’s an easy-to-understand, user-friendly guide to help make feeding time more fun for you and your baby.
