Baby Led Weaning

Experts agree that it’s important for babies to learn how to eat on their own before they’re one year old. The traditional transition goes from single-item purees fed with a spoon by parents, to a gradual transition to finger foods. Baby-led weaning flips this script by putting babies in charge of feeding themselves and teaching them about textures firsthand. The process begins by cutting foods firm enough thatchy hold into pieces which are made specifically for grasping, long enough that they can have a little portion sticking out of their hand that they can see, and soft enough to gum and chew. This provides both sensory satisfaction as well as practice controlling proper form while eating. 

Book your personal session today to learn the best foods to start with at what ages and simple nutrias recipes. We can also discuss any challenges you may be having.

Postpartum Weight Loss

The average woman loses about 13 pounds (6kg) following childbirth, this includes the weight of the baby, the placenta, and amniotic fluid. Some additional retained fluid may also be lost in the first week, but the fat stored during pregnancy won’t disappear on its own. Through diet and regular exercise, it might be reasonable to lose up to 1 pound (0 .5kg) per week after giving birth- expect about six months or more before returning your pre-pregnancy weight whether you’re breastfeeding or not!
It’s important not only to focus on physical activity but also to eat healthy food sources like vegetables, fruits, and whole grains.

Join our program to learn healthy habits for weight loss, along with recipes, meal-prep ideas, exercise techniques that incorporate your baby, and much more.
