Baby Feeding Tips
Posted by Chad Carter
The holidays are upon us and I couldn’t be happier. This year is going to be so exciting and fun spending so much time with family. All that time together also means, LOTS of food. With a little guy who seems to always be hungry, I figured Thanksgiving dinner was going to be a sure bet. We were able to get him to try a few different options, but he found playing with it way more enjoyable. Thankfully we were prepared.

“When I’m rumbly in my tumbly, then it’s time to eat” – WINNIE THE POOH
Since I happen to have a baby who would love nothing more than to nurse 24/7, I figured our always-hungry, little pooh bear would be a big fan of food once we started solids. First steps first…decide which food to introduce first. We decided to keep it simple and go with mashed up avocado and this is how it went…

Breastfeeding wasn’t easy for me at first. I struggled with my first child. Even though it is a natural thing, she just didn’t take to it very well at the beginning and I hardly knew how to remedy any problem. I reached out to lactation consultants constantly for help and support. Eventually my daughter and I got the hang of it. I was surprised at how easy and convenient it was for me once I realized what I was doing. With my following girls, I had a bunch of tips and tricks up my sleeve to keep nursing going smoothly. So when Amani was born, I was surprised to find myself worried about breastfeeding again.

One tradition my girls and I do each year is bake cookies the day before Thanksgiving. My husband laughs because these are technically Christmas cookies, but we turn them into Thanksgiving cookies by using a leaf cookie cutter and some fall icing colors. My girls love helping me bake them, but their favorite part is decorating them!
Even young toddlers can help with this fun tradition. If you’re looking for a fun project to do over the Thanksgiving holiday, consider making some of these sugar cookies! (And make sure to save the recipe! They are THAT good!)
