Starting a baby on solids has always really intimidated me. I never know what the best choices are to start first, how to prepare them, or how much to offer. I’m scared that I’ll offer the fruit that will cause an allergy, the vegetable that will result in a diaper rash, or the meat no baby should eat.
Paul is now 3 months old, and I’m relishing in the next few months where all the nutrition he needs still comes in liquid form. Breastmilk? I’m really good at making that.
I am a firm believer that healthy food choices start early, and that we as parents have a huge responsibility to teach nutrition straight from the get go. Oftentimes for me, the anxiety lies in the preparation.
A new book to hit the shelves just this month, Super Nutrition for Babies: The Right Way to Feed Your Baby for Optimal Health, co-authored by Kelly Genzlinger and David Brownstein M.D. aims at guiding parents and caregivers towards making healthy food decisions for their babies.
This book looks really interesting and insightful, it’s definitely a book I will be purchasing very soon. Honestly, it looks like a book that my whole family could benefit from, not just the baby.
We have one copy of the book to giveaway to one lucky Baby’s First Year reader. Entering is simple, just leave a comment telling us what table food you’re most excited to feed your baby.
