M I L K F I R S T — Sweet Mamas! When beginning on the first foods journey, please allow yourself + your baby some space + grace. — Babies don’t associate solid food with their hunger cues yet — this takes time, months even. To avoid a stress-state, or frustration at meal time which can start the journey off on the wrong foot, it is best to offer breast or bottle F I R S T, followed by solids. — Your milk will adapt gradually + intuitively over the next few months + has baby’s nutritional needs covered. Around nine or ten months old, often depending on the temperament of your baby, you can begin to offer food first. — Use your intuition, and take the pressure of the table. No one knows your baby better than you do. — Mamas, what age did your baby start to love solids? . . . #letthembelittle #letthemlovefood 📷 x @mothermusemag

Quinoa and Riced Veggie Risotto // In a pot cook up 1/2 a cup of quinoa according to the package directions, using either water or broth. Mince 1 shallot and as much garlic as you like, and add to a large pan. Add paprika to taste, then sauté everything in a little grass fed butter. To the pan, add 1.5 cups of riced broccoli, 1.5 cup of riced cauliflower, and one very finely chopped red bell pepper. Finely chop 1 handful of spinach and 1 handful of kale (like you’re chopping herbs). Add the quinoa and 1/2 cup of peas to the pan. Cook until everything is tender. Remove from the heat and stir in 1/4 cup of fresh Parmesan (more or less based on your own tastes). Serve!

It’s always important to remember that food before one is just for fun, so try to introduce a wide variety of tastes and textures for your little on to engage with. Therefore it’s important to continue to breastfeed on demand or supplement with formula. • • • • #blw #bab#bab#bab#baby/a>ing #wea#weaning #babyled #baby #parenting #food #babyfood #weaning #toddler #baby #blwnation #mbloggers #foodblogger #babyledweaningideas #recipes #blwmenu #babyweaning #kidsmeals #blwideas #homemade #blwchecklist
