Great tips to think about at meal times with your kids.

Great tips to think about at meal times with your kids.

"Ew, that's a squid in my soup." A little m zinger, which of course meant he wouldn't eat his chicken tortilla soup.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
I had a feeling this might happen. I haven't made this soup for several years, so as far as he can remember, he's never had it before. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
To his credit, the chicken did kinda look like squid. He was disgusted. He wouldn't eat it. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
I mentioned this in my stories and a lot of people asked if I made him something else. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Nope. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
I served 2 other familiar foods that he is often comfortable with - peas and bread. He filled up on those. ⁠Getting up and getting him something else would have suggested he is in charge of what is served at a meal and that he needs special non-family food. That would have enabled his picky eating. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Giving him space to fill up on peas and bread that meal, helped him feel comfortable around the soup. I've served it twice since and he's chosen to eat several bites both times. Next time he may eat a whole bowl.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
If you want my complete mealtime framework, you can get my free picky eater guide in my bio @kids.eat.in.color. It's 14 pages and ever so helpful. 😊 ⁠⠀

Are you breastfeeding and suffering from sore nipples? That can be a common problem, but is often caused by things that are easily corrected, like a poor latch or position, or incorrect use of a breast pump. Sore nipples can also happen if your baby becomes used to a bottle too early. For more information about sore nipples, visit http://ow.ly/CAfF50Bkj3I

It is with a heavy heart our Sixteenth Street family shares a few words to honor our beloved Teresita. For six years, she has guided and cared for pregnant woman, making sure every person she met, no matter the difficulty of their situation, was cared for and felt love. She spent her free time working, dancing, and advocating with our neighbors at CORE El Centro. Not a minute went by in which she wasn’t helping others. We cherish her infectious laugh and the pure joy she spread every day. Dancing, singing, and making us all smile in every encounter. You are very loved Teresita and will be very missed.

Foremilk and hindmilk is not a thing. We have decades of research showing that

1- there are NOT 2 kinds of milk
2- fat, carbohydrate, and water molecules move out of the breast at differing rates
3- the composition of milk changes throughout the feed, day, week, month, and year which is NORMAL
4- frequency of feeding is the main driver of milk production and composition
5- the FREQUENCY of feeding is the MAIN DRIVER of milk production and composition
6- if you are worried about foremilk, hindmilk, milk production, weight gain, poops, sleep, growth the first thing to do is increase frequency at the breast

It's almost like we created fictional terms to make parents doubt their ability to nourish their babies, blame female bodies, and market breasts as unreliable nutrition. Who would do that?

Great tips for snack and meal times.

Great tips for snack and meal times.

How do we help our kids listen to when they are hungry and full better? Here’s a few things!⁠⠀
⁠⠀
We can⁠:⁠⠀
- Let them choose whether to eat or not when we serve a meal or snack⁠⠀
- Don’t pressure them in any way to eat or not eat⁠⠀
- No clean plate clubs or celebrating eating all their food⁠⠀
- Don’t serve food when they are feeling down emotionally⁠⠀
- Serve food formally and consistently - sitting down at meal and snack time⁠⠀
- Don’t force or bribe them to eat at mealtimes⁠⠀
⁠⠀
For many of us, this is different from what we grew up with! What rules did you have in your family about how much you were allowed to eat?⁠⠀
⁠⠀
If you want all of this in one place, I go over it in my free child feeding guide - where the links are!⁠⠀

Food on schedule 👶👶👶Breastfeed on demand 🤱🤱🤱

Food on schedule 👶👶👶
Breastfeed on demand 🤱🤱🤱

WHEN DO I BREASTFEED ONCE I HAVE STARTED SOLIDS? One of the most common questions I get. The answer is not that complicated though.
.
.
Two things:
🥑Offer food on schedule
🤱Breastfeed on demand
.
.
That’s it. Not at solids yet? Save this post for later to remind you!
.
.
Doing it this way teaches your baby how meal structure works in life, while still meeting their needs until they are developmentally ready for that structure 100%.
.
.
You may even find your breastfeeding rhythm doesn’t really change much, but there’s just a new activity on the schedule: food!
.
.
But solids are more than just a “fun activity”, contributing to key nutrients, allergen exposure and developmental skill building. However it is always up to your baby with how much they will eat. So you take the pressure off by continuing to breastfeed on demand to help to fill in the gaps from the variable intake while they learn a new skill - feeding themselves!
.
.
I go over this in more detail in my presentation at the Baby’s First Year Conference - registration is FREE. Check it out >> breastfeedingdietitian.com/insta
.
.
Registering gets you more than just my info - there’s info from over 30 other experts about all things during your baby’s first year of life! Rather than cramming all that info in a week, you can upgrade to an All-Access Pass to get:
✨Lifetime access to all presentations, plus
✨TONNES of bonus content from all the speakers
.
.
If you know you want to upgrade, the cheapest option is right after you register for $47 (that’s less than $1.50 per speaker 🤯), and then this price also goes up once the conference starts.
