Steps to Weaning a Breast Fed Baby

how to wean from breast feeding

My son has been breast fed from day 1. I have loved it! BUT….when he started getting to be about 11-12 months it became more of a chore than a bonding time. The morning and night nursings were still wonderful, but the lunch and dinner ones were a bit much. He was so squirmy and

Veggie Packed Muffins

I promised myself that my next foodie post would be about something other than breakfast foods, and I kinda kept my promise. I have been slinging breakfast recipes at you left and right from my healthy toddler pancakes to my yummy couscous breakfast.

The muffins in today’s recipe I have been using mostly as a

Couscous is For Breakfast

I absolutely adore this stage in baby boy’s eating adventures. At 14 months he is so willing to try new things (waiting for that to change!), so I can get creative with his meals. He is mostly past the phase where I have to cook something different for him, because he can now usually eat

Sweet Potato/Apple Pancakes (for dinner!)

Dinner on the table by 5:30. Simple enough? Not quite.

There are nights that everything goes as planned and baby boy entertains himself easily enough so that I AM able to accomplish dinner for the 3 of us. But then of course there is the unexpected phone call, or the wet sheets that need to

Baby boy is just a few days shy of 14 months old and I am loving this age! He isn’t walking yet (which I am TOTALLY OK with!), but he is learning new things every moment it seems.

As far as eating, he packs it away like he has been eating for 30 years. Occasionally

Pancakes for Toddlers

I must admit that when baby boy was 8 months or so I got into a breakfast slump. Oatmeal mixed with applesauce and cinnamon got a bit boring. Not sure if baby boy was bored but I was! We started adding a yogurt/fruit smoothie (kind of like my night time snack!) into the mix…that was

Straw Sippy Cup Love

Ahhh weaning. How I love and hate you at the same time. I have exclusively breast fed baby boy from the day he entered the world. We had a wonderful go at it also. He nursed like a champ, and if it were up to him, I think he would carry on with the nursing

Quinoa Baby Food

One of my main goals when feeding baby boy his meals is that they are balanced and have a variety of foods with each one. I wrote about my baby meals a bit ago where I threw a veggie, grain, meat, & spices together to make a yummy meal. Barley, rice, and couscous were three

Taking a Toddler to a Restaurant

tips for dining with a toddler

Taking a little one to a restaurant is not an easy feat. Eating out used to be a cake walk and was a welcome break from cooking at home. A little treat to ourselves. Yeah….not so much anymore! While not cooking dinner for a night is wonderful, sometimes it is just plain simpler to stay

Mini Meatballs for Baby

Baby boy is such a big boy now! I just got back from shopping and I am buying 18 month pajamas! What?? Where did all that time go? Such is the plight of Mother’s everywhere….

Because baby boy is now 1 year old, he is eating more and more table foods. No more purees for
