Feeding the baby is a tricky thing to do. If baby likes one food, then he may dislike it the very next moment. There is no hard and fast rule to follow. As a mother you have to be a vigilant observer of the baby’s actions, reactions, moods and habits.
From introducing food to the baby for the first time to inculcating good eating habits that would last the life time, every step is crucial. Every day I used to face the same questions,
- How and what to feed my baby?
- Should I mash and puree the food or should I use table foods?
- Should I use the ready made food available in the market specifically developed for this purpose or should I make it at home?
- And if i make it at home then what ingredients and how much quantity should I use?
discover great websites on this topic covering all the issues, concerns and questions I have in my mind. Let’s take a look at them.
You don’t have to buy the commercially made food for your baby as you could prepare them at home. And It won’t take much of your time but an hour a week. This website introduces to making DIY baby food recipes, puree and store food. On this website you will also find the nutritional value of ingredients that you are going to use in the recipes. I like the layout of the website as it is simple yet beautiful. Navigation is easy and all the topics are nicely arranged.
There is a section of food allergy where you could check the foods that can create allergies to the baby and how to deal with it. In this section different studies and research are also discussed for your knowledge.
It is easy to puree and store the baby food with easy to follow instructions at “Puree and store” page.
I like another thing about this website that I want to write about is their special and holiday recipes. Arranged under “Tips and Topics”, there are recipes for first birthday cake, fall recipes, dips for baby etc.
Another website that I want to write about is Homemade baby food recipes. This website is huge with lots of recipes from simple foods to full meals. I like the layout very much. It is not only elegant but practical. You can find everything on the home page.
I like their travel tips in which some important issues are included like taking a baby to a restaurant, feeding tips for air travel with baby, travel snacks etc.
In “Articles”, there are topics discussed that deal with baby’s nutritional needs, introducing baby to sippy cup and giving water etc.
If you discover your baby is suffering from an ailment for example, constipation, diarrhea, diaper rash, cold, check out the “Problems” page. On this page you’ll find the possible causes(foods) of the illness and which foods will help your baby recovering from it.
I found Quick links quite handy, because here you can check out recipes by clicking at ingredients.
I like visiting these websites again and again as they help me keep my baby healthy and happy. On this note I am going to end this review of useful links. Of course this is not the last post on this topic as I am going to review more websites and post it soon.
