Starting Solids with Nuby

Hi all! Remi turns 6 months on Saturday (what?!), so starting her on solids has been on my mind the last few weeks. We choose to skip cereals and just introduce her around 6 months. I had been looking for a few things to make feeding her easier, and I am here to share a few of my favorite things that I have found!

        

First is this E-Z Squee-z. I have loved this. It is a soft, squeezable silicon bottle that promotes self feeding and is easy for little hands to hold. I simply pour a small amount of pureed food in it and let Remi figure it out. We have used it a few times and it is cute to see her figure out bringing it to her mouth and chewing/sucking on it.

       

My older daughter Saylor has liked using this silicone placemat lately. It sticks to flat surfaces, is dishwasher safe, and she really likes the different sections. Once Remi starts eating more/different foods I will use this for her as well. It is really cute and convenient.

       

Last thing that is perfect for teething and introducing foods is this Garden Fresh Fruitsicle Tray. I love these! They are brilliantly designed. The handle that you hold is the perfect size, and they have a ring catcher thing around the actual popsicle part that is design to catch the drips as it melts. Such a good idea.

Starting foods with you baby is sort of bittersweet, it means they are growing, but it is also fun to have them try new things and learn. Be sure to follow me on Instagram @robynmeacham and enter my giveaway with Nuby!

Toddler Meal Ideas with Amara

I know I have touched on this before, but I *try* to be semi healthy and instill good habits in Saylor. I’ll be the first to admit that I love sweets and don’t ever deprive myself, but I always do eat a good amount of fruits and veggies and be sure to drink plenty of water.

When I discovered Amara, I was immediately interested. Especially since I’m having another baby, I’m starting to think about baby food (what?) and things like that. Amara focuses on healthy food, and not much else. They don’t add anything you can’t pronounce, and it comes in a convenient packet. They also have discovered a new way to offer baby food…freeze dried! Super cool. It locks in nutrients that can otherwise get lost.

There are a lot of different things you can do with their food other than making it into baby food. You can add them to smoothies, applesauce, and even make pancakes…which is what I did tonight! Saylor loved helping me and loved the end result. Here is the recipe for Green Pancakes.

 

  

Saylor wasn’t quite sure at first, but after the first bite she was sold. Be sure to check out all of Amara’s baby food options HERE and follow them on Instagram HERE.
