So far (knock on wood), my 9 month old will eat anything I give her. So, I try and give her healthy choices as much as possible. If everything tasted good, wouldn't you eat the healthiest stuff all the time too!? I read an article on superfoods for babies and decided to try and pack as many of those as possible into one french fry shaped "finger" that she could easily feed herself. I found a winning recipe! I made them over the weekend and they will probably last all week - plus they…Continue

It's been a seriously difficult week in the world of weaning. Literally all of the information out there that I've found in the past week has been conflicting, and needless to say my milk has not dried up yet.
I'm on my seventh day of taking Sudafed, my seventh day of bound breasts, I've worn a snug bra to bed for the past week, and this is my third day of round the clock cabbage leaves. My boob (yes, singular, one of them is…Continue

I am in the beginning stages of weaning Garrett off the breast. The past month it seems I've had nothing but issues... Clogged ducts, supply dropping, etc. Not to mention Garrett really doesn't want to nurse anymore, he's too distracted and independent.…Continue

When I took my son to his 18 month old check up, my son was happily sucking on his pacifier when the doctor walked him. She took it out of his mouth so that she could look into his mouth and he kept telling her that he wanted he wanted his “paci” back. She told him that if he could ask for it,…Continue
Kinsey girl is 10 months old now (wowzers!), and I have come a long way in the foodie department since I last talked about it here. We went with a hybrid version of Baby Led Weaning, because I am a total nutcase every time Kinsey gags or makes choking noises. The theory makes sense. Teach your kid to chew before teaching them to swallow…I support it, but I also wanted solid foods to be an opportunity…Continue

I am from a family restaurant background but I'll never be a short order cook- never! I just don't believe in it and now my family can blame my folks. My parents owned and managed small restaurants that required tons of hard work, elbow grease, no vacations, zero free weekends, and lots of dish washing. But oh, did I eat well!
My dad took care of a steak house and my mom took care of a small fifteen table Korean restaurant- so any type of food I wanted, I could plead for, and…Continue

I like to say "round" instead of stage or trial, since we're in this for the long baby led weaning fight. We'll be patient and we'll be diligent in our efforts. I say "we" but it is really like a boxing match- it all depends on the other person (in this case: Bambina). Even though I'm being a rebel by skipping all the purees and cereals, I am taking the usual 3-4 days in between introducing new foods in case there are any funky allergic-like reactions.
Sillyboy, as an infant,…Continue

I gave myself a deadline, if you will, for weaning Aidan from breastfeeding. I did this because I am a planner and I like to do things in a well thought out and calculated manner. Giving myself the deadline of Memorial Day Weekend planted a seed in my mind that said in March and April I needed to pump pump pump and freeze as much breast milk as possible so that he could still have breast milk, just not from the “tap.” Then, in May, I’d start replacing one breastfeeding with a bottle in a…Continue
