What Foods To Start Babies On – Creating a Happy Baby

Being a parent of an infant requires countless love, care, and responsibilities. Especially when you are new to parenting, things can seem confusing. As your baby grows up, your excitement is increases. At first, you breastfeed your baby or use supplemental formula. Then a few months later, the baby needs solid food for potential growth.

For every parent, introducing solids to infant babies is an exciting milestone. But What Foods To Start Babies On? Continue reading the article to learn about the baby’s first foods.

When your baby becomes four to six months old, you are used to breastfeeding or formula. But do not become too comfortable with this! Your child will soon show the readiness sign for solids.

When To Introduce Solids

According to the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), the right time to introduce solids to your child is between four to six months. However, it still depends on your baby; every child reacts differently to food. If your little one is not ready, you better wait and start solid foods between six and eight months. Most babies become ready in the period of 5 to 6 months. You must not rush this milestone. Remember, there is no need to give first food before four months.

Starting your little one on their baby food depends on your baby. Here are some signs that your baby may be ready for baby food.

  • They are curious, looking at things around them, especially what you’re eating!
  • They can sit up with support and have good head control.
  • They still seem hungry after having all their milk (breastfeeding or formula).

The AAP advises that the baby should also be double their birth weight and weigh at least 13 pounds.

From 4 months to 1 year and on, you are facing providing nutritious, balanced foods and exposing your little one to various tastes and textures to encourage a future of healthy eating.

Every baby is different; when my baby was born, he was 9 pounds and 10 ounces. He was always hungry; calling my doctor when Jeff was just four days old, the doctor said to start him on cereal and formula; he became very happy, and believe it or not, Jeff began to sleep all night. I was one of the lucky ones; very, very few infants do that. He is now six feet tall and very healthy. But please do not do this without your doctor saying so.

Baby’s Foods by Age

Age: Birth to 4 months

Breast milk or formula only, unless instructed differently by the baby’s doctor.

Age: 4 to 6 months (Stage One)

When the baby is ready for solids (baby food), you don’t need to worry. Introducing foods to your little one does not need to be in any particular order, while baby cereal is the traditional first food. (Single-Grain cereals fortified with iron for starters.) At 4 to 6 months, feed your baby two meals a day. It might not be easy to feed cereals initially. But you can try! Combine one teaspoon of cereal with four to five teaspoons of formula or breast milk. Most of the cereal may initially spill on the baby’s chin and all over, but do not panic. Things get better with time and practice. As your baby gets used to it, you can make it thicker by adding more cereal and less breast milk or formula.

The best 5 Baby Cereals:

The Best Overall:

Happy Baby Organic Oatmeal Cereal

The Best Whole Wheat:

Gerber Whole Wheat Baby Cereal

 

Best Rice

Earth’s Best Organic Infant Rice Cereal


Best Multi-grain:

Earths Best Organic Multi-grain Infant Cereal

The Best Variety Pack

Gerber Cereal Variety Pack

Oatmeal, Rice, Whole Wheat, Multi-grain

The about (stage one) baby foods are ranked by

  • American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP)
  • Dietitians
  • Forbes Health Panel of Pediatricians and Registered dietitian

Now that your little tyke is doing well with the new experience of cereal, it’s time for stage 1, baby foods like vegetables and fruit. (The stage 1 baby foods are watery pureed of a single ingredient.)

Now your little one has made their way through their adventure of these delicious stage 1 purees; they are ready for the exciting world of combination puree to Stage 2 purees ( The Stage 2 food is thicker but continues to still be fairly smooth.)

You may have heard that it is preferred to start with vegetables over fruit or the baby will develop a preference for sweet foods, but there’s no research to back that up. So it’s up to you to start with vegetables or fruits.

Age 6 to 8 months

Same as 4 to 6 months with some additional things

Here are examples of some stage 2 baby foods

Pureed Baby Foods:

Pureed Squash, Pears, Peaches, Applesauce, Bananas,
Zucchini, Apples, Spinach, and Chicken blend,
Sweet Potato with Pear Blend. Green Beans, and Broccoli blend Blueberry, Mango,

Per amazon customers’ ratings, these are 6 of the best baby foods, stage 2

Rating 9.9 — Gerber – Gerber Pureed 2nd Foods Veggie & Fruit Variety Pack

Rating 9.8 — Happy Baby – Happy Baby Organic Clearly Crafted Stage 2 Baby, Fruit, Veggie Variety Pack, 4 oz Pouch

Rating 9.7 — Plum Organics – Plum Organics Stage 2, Organic Baby Food, Fruit and Veggie Variety Pack, 4 oz Pouch

Rating 9.6 — Gerber – Gerber 2nd Foods Hawaiian delight Dessert

Rating 9.5 — Happy Baby – Happy Baby Organics Simple Combos Stage 2 Baby Food, Variety Pack

Rating 9.2 — Gerber – Gerber 2nd Foods Sweet Potato & Turkey Pureed Baby Food


Stage 3 Baby Foods: are chunky and lumpy. They contain larger pieces of soft foods that train babies to develop munching and chewing skills (since munching and chewing are learned, not innate, behaviors). They’re meant for babies who have mastered the stage 2 textures and who are ready to explore a wide texture variety.

Along this journey of taste and textures (About 8 months), your little one will start picking-up food and trying to feed themselves.

Baby’s now becoming interested in doing things like the following:

  • Picking up food with fingers or hands.
  • Tries to use a spoon.
  • Transfers items from one hand to the other.
  • Is swallowing food more easily.
  • Moves jaw like their chewing.
  • Don’t push food out with tongue.

Around 8 months or a little sooner, your little one is most likely to be interested in finger food—things they see you eating at the table. We had our son’s high chair at the table for meals. There are many types of finger food in the baby food section for this age.

Some good finger food include

Happy Baby – Organic Yogis Freese-Dried Yogurt & Fruit Snack

Gerber – Teethers Wafer – Peach and banana flavor

Dissolves easily, For 7 months & up


Gerber Puffs – Banana & Strawberry apple

Around 8 months, you can try new tastes and textures to baby’s treats, things like:

Diced Avocado – this is fun to mash, pick-up, and feed it to their self.

Small pieces of scrambled eggs are a great finger food, full of protein and other things the baby needs. As far as things like scrambled eggs and some other finger foods go, the timing is still out with some doctors; checking is always a good idea when in question.

At 9 months old, babies are more comfortable feeding themselves and eating the foods the family enjoys.

For babies, eating solid foods is a sensory delight of texture, smells, and tastes, plus all that fun of making a mess with those curious tiny hands.

Continuing thru the 9th month and on to the 12 month: Chopped, Ground, or Mashed Foods

As soon as your fast-growing munchkin is ready to transition from purees, it is time to incorporate more finger foods with interesting textures like yogurt, cottage cheese, mashed bananas, and mashed sweet potatoes. Baby can now use additional iron; for this, you can try pureed meat like beef, chicken, and turkey.

Notes:

  • Stay with your baby all the time while they are eating for safety.
  • Baby has tiny tummies, so be careful not to overfill baby.
  • Some signs that your little tyke is full:
    • Leaning back in their chair
    • Turning head away from food
    • Pushes away food
    • Uses hand motions or sounds letting you know they are full
    • Starting to fall asleep
  • The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends the following items:
    • Not giving fruit juice to infants under one year old. Only pasteurized, 100% fruit juices (without added sugar) may be given to older babies and children but should be limited to 4 ounces a day. It would also be a great idea to dilute the juice with water and offer it in a cup with a meal.
    • Healthy babies usually require little or no extra water, except in very hot weather.
    • Don’t warm baby’s food or bottles in the microwave; it can burn baby’s throat or mouth.
    • Cow’s milk shouldn’t be added to the diet until your baby is age 1. (Talk to your baby’s doctor about starting milk.)
    • Don’t give your child honey in any form during your child’s first year. It can cause infant botulism (a condition caused by a toxin).

What Food To Start Babies On? As parents, you will be searching and making a lot of important decisions about the best foods for your little one. Every parent wants the most nutritious, healthiest, and best baby food, whether natural or organic, in a jar or pouch.

Babies are pretty good at knowing when they’re hungry or when they are full, and they will let you know. Just watch their cues.

I have given you the basics of What Foods To Start Babies On; I hope this is of help to you.

Starting your baby with solid food is an exciting milestone for parents, but an even more incredible milestone is when they can completely feed themselves, some call that milestone 8.

Be sure to take a lot of pictures; you won’t be sorry; I still look back at my son’s photos and get so much joy from them. Your little one will never be that size or age again.

Please feel free to share your feedback; I would love to hear from you and answer any questions you may have.

Thank You, and the best of everything to you and your family.

a theme for a girl or boy, everything is right here.

A baby, nursery is perhaps the cutest room in the house, and

pastel colors. Well, it doesn’t have to be that way for your kids,

especially with all the designs and options available out there.

decor will make every sleep memorable for your baby. You can

get a cool contemporary rocker or a hanging chair in the room.

Decorate the Ceiling

Probably the most ignored element in any room is the ceiling. You

cannot have a beautiful, comfortable, elegant nursery without

decorating the ceiling. Think for a second, a ceiling is one of the

most noticed part of the room, and therefore, you need to make

sure it is well decorated. Add some funky colors, designs,

patterns to makes sure baby always has a view to enjoy.

Bold Colors & Patterns

BABY’S NURSERY IDEAS have come a long way, and soft pastels are not

the only choice to go for. According to many parenting gurus, one

of the best things you can do as a parent for your little one is

stimulating the baby.s vision. You can use black and white stripes

or light and dark contrasting colors.

You might be wondering what’s wrong with using nice and soft

pastel colors? Well, there is nothing wrong with using them;

however, they do nothing visually for your baby. Research has

proven that black and white colors has a high contrast register

allowing strong signals to be sent to the baby’s retains. Strong

signals to the brain mean faster visual development and more

brain growth.

Space that Grows with the Baby

We are no longer in the traditional ways of decor, where there was

a constant need to upgrade the room and its furniture. Now you can

go with modular furniture that can be used beyond
the first year. Many

crib styles nowadays convert into children’s beds, while changing

tables are often a regular dresser with a
detachable dressing tabletop.

You can always add fun elements to baby’s nursery like animals,

rocking chair, or a tent that baby will use as he/she grows into a

toddler.

The Nursery Theme

When you are deciding the theme for your baby’s nursery, commit to

it fully and be bold. Use certain elements of the theme that

complement the whole interior. Having a particular theme will give

the nursery an additional touch of elegance and the flair. That’s

what makes so many of the featured nursery ideas in the feature

gallery so appealing.

Nature at Its Best

Adding some plants and flowers to the whole decor can have

significant health benefits for your baby. Anyone who has ever bought a

houseplant would admit that having indoor plants takes your home

interior-look to a whole new level. Not only does it make your home look

beautiful, but it also has plenty of health-related benefits.

One of the best plants for a baby,’s nursery is an English Ivy. The Plant

all allergies. “So if” you’re looking to give your baby the cleanest air to

breathe, this is the way to go.

If you want to improve the cognitive performance of your baby, we

suggest adding rosemary to the nursery. Rosemary can easily be planted

in a pot and put in any spot where it has access to bright sunlight.

(Or you could use a plant light)

Buy A Cool Crib

OK, so you cannot ignore buying the coolest crib for your baby. There are

many designs for you to choose from and I suggest going for something

more modern, maybe like an oval crib. Or something like in the BABY’S

NURSERY IDEAS Gallery.

Are you wondering why it is important? Well, what happens when you are

feeling tired and couldn’t get a good sleep because your mattress is not

good enough? Like adults, babies also need a good sleep too. Remember,

a comfortable crib equals a happy baby mean less crying.

Also, makes sure the crib is study enough to handle the little ones jumping.

Not just focus on design aspect.

GO FOR SOMETHING MORE NEUTRAL

go neutral colorNowadays, parents prefer to keep the sex of the baby a surprise for

themselves, which means they simply don’t know what color should

be in the nursery. Well, why not go for something neutral, something

that fits perfectly whether you have a girl or a boy.

 

I highly recommend going with a timeless and modern Grey as your

nursery’s main color. Grey works with and bold accent shade,

making it modern but classic.

MY LOVABLE INFANTS AND TODDLERS – WHEN YOUR PRECIOUS INFANTS AND TODDLERS LEARN TO LOVE

Love actually comes before the baby is born while they are still
in the womb. Baby can hear, hearing is established  by the 
seventh month. (So it is important to talk and even sing to 
them.) They also can  feel, and even smell their mothers 
fragrance.Baby can also adopt their mothers emotional state.
Your babystarts to feel a connection with you from the
beginning.

grandparents

"Though" coming months you will have an exciting adventure
watching your little tyke grow and develop. 
But no baby can do it alone. Loving contact with others is
essential.

When Your Precious Infants and Toddlers – Learn to Love From the Moment Your Infant is Born, They Feel Attachment to There Parents

At a very early age, babies have the emotional capabilities to
show feeling. They form a deep loving bond. Babies bond with
people thatare regular caregivers. People giving care and 
affection like parents, daycare workers, and grandparents.


 Bonding comes in many forms, some are:
  • Talking to them
  • Caressing they’re little cheeks, arms, and legs
  • Holding the baby and cuddling them
  • Skin to skin contact
  • Comfort and affection teaches the newborn to trust the 
parents. Human touch is critical. When a loving adult hugs the 
child, the little one relaxes and feels safe. When an infant is
held and stoked, the brain releases critical 
hormones that spur growth.
WAYS YOU TELL IF YOUR BONDING IS SUCCESSFUL
At the beginning baby's signs of affection is very subtle but
they will be their.

Below are some subtle sign:

Imitating is said to be a form of flattery, or so we have
heard.  

Well it is true for babies too.  Tying to mimic your
actions is one they show their love.

Babies know your particular scent, and will open their 
mouth to breathe in you fragrance.  That is a good way
you have of knowing you bonding is going well.

When baby settles close in your arms, that is showing 
their trust in you.  Cuddling is probably the best 
indication that your little one is totally in love with
you.  It is one of the sweetest things we can experience.

Your baby will turn his head when hearing the sound of
your voice, knowing mommy is around.  Recognizing you is
another sign of a successful bonding.

Babies show their emotions on their faces, they are unable
to fake their feeling.  If the baby is happy to see you
they will perk up, and their eyes light up.

The bond between mother and child can grow stronger when
the infant look deeply into your eyes, and you should do
the same

Also, nursing or bottle feeding is a primary way to bond.
By cradling your baby and nourishing her you're letting 
her know she's loved and protected.  In fact the 
connection you forge during feeding is as vital to your 
infant's well-being as the nourishment benefit of food its 
self.

All of your loving care comes back to you, when baby
starts reaching out to you or starts babbling.

Bonding sometimes takes a little longer, and that's okay.
Having a newborn can be difficult sometime.  We should 
continue working on developing the bond of love.  It can
not be forced, just be patient and loving.


A HEALTHY INFANT IS BORN WITH ALL THAT'S NEEDED FOR A 
HAPPY AND PRODUCTIVE LIFE  





 
That little head contains  billions of brain cells eager to get 
to work, ready to develop the connections necessary for
everything that child will do - from that first cry to that 
first step, to that first diploma, to a lifetime of loving and
socializing withothers.  But no baby can do it alone.  Loving
contact with another human is essential.  When a child gets that 
all-important nurturing care early on, the young brain develops
at an astonishing rate.

The first few years matter most.  A baby's brain is so active 
during the first months that as many as 1 million new neural 
connections are forming every second.  The brain is busier than 
it will be at anyothertime. In fact, 60% of a baby's energy
goes into brain development! By the third year, a healthy brain
will have formed one thousandbaby receives loving one-on-one 
care, responsivecare.  Simpleknowing how to teach caregivers to 
provide loving responsive care to the children in their the 
children charge is the key ingredient.

BABY SHOWS SIGNS OF GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT

 

Sometime between 4 and 10 weeks (1 to 3 months) babies
start to smile spontaneously rather than by reflex .  
Baby's first social smile is one of the most wonderful things 
in the world.  Social smiles are an important part of their
development, and a great sign you have bonded with your child.

Babies might not know how to talk, but will try to

 

communicate with her cooing and babbling. They maybe telling
you a story or about her day. Talk with her, not just baby talk.
The fact that baby wants to talk to you is a sure sign that she 
loves you. Around 2 months your settling into a routine, baby 
will reward you with a glimmer of her personality. Parenthood
WHEN THEY ARE AROUND 8 OR 9 MONTHS

Around 8 or 9 months is when babies start demonstrating
affection for their peers. That provided they spend lots of 
time with other little ones. They light up when seeinga friend.
Now that she is a little older she may pull away to signal
that she wants to exercise her little body on the floor, or
roll over, or start to crawl. 


ABOUT NINE MONTHS TO A YEAR OLD THEY WILL BECOME TODDLERS 


Playing by their self, walking, and kissing. Toddlerhood is a 
prime time for making friends, having memory to recall,
enjoyable experiences, and starting to understand empathy, and 
playing with peers. Help children practice social behavior, 
such as cooperation, sharing, and kindness. 


MY LOVABLE INFANTS AND TODDLERS HAVE HAD A LONG JOURNEY 


The lovable babies have come a long way. Learning, growing and 
developing, from newborn through one year, plus some, while 
learning to LOVE. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
Whether their dragging their favorite blanket down the stairs 
or talking to their baby doll, their showing how cool, he thinks
you are by trying to imitate you. When infants and toddlers are 
exposed to more words by 18 months tend to have a faster brain 
processing speed. How quickly the child develops into a social
creature. She is a growing, thriving, and learning to LOVE.
