Baby Feeding Tips
Posted by Mary McBride
The holidays find our family out and about much more than usual. Whether it be shopping for gifts or attending a holiday gathering, we often end up eating away from home. At home, Elvie eats at the table with us, in her own high chair. We try to find middle ground with the cleanliness of her area of the table. We don’t do a full disinfection of the area between each and every meal, but we do wipe it down and keep it clean. At the same time, during meals, anything goes, and her place is often a big mess. It’s no big deal, really, because it’s our home, and we know that we will clean it up, and that we eat at a table that is kid friendly.
When we’re away from home, however, two different sticky situations often present themselves. First, we might be grabbing a quick bite at a restaurant, and we find that the table surface where Elvie is supposed to eat is less than clean. On the other end of the spectrum, sometimes we find ourselves feeding Elvie on a table that clearly wasn’t designed with toddlers in mind. Luckily, there are Disney Baby Table Toppers, disposable placemats that can cover over someone else’s mess or keep Elvie’s from spreading. Just in time for the holiday rush, they’re on sale in store at Babies R Us.

Our timing with introducing Judah to solids couldn’t have worked out more perfectly… it’s all been leading up to THE foodie holiday of the year: Thanksgiving! Since he first started solids, we’ve been slowly introducing him to new flavors and foods with Thanksgiving in mind: green beans, carrots, potatoes and turkey. Now, when we sit down at the table, Judah will be able to share a little bit of our Thanksgiving feast with us by having a little of each Thanksgiving favorite all on one plate.

Food art for kids has become a growing trend for good reason. Older babies and toddlers can be finicky eaters and there’s nothing like a fun little food plate to turn that around.
I myself have gotten into making food art on occasion and I can testify to the fact that they go over very well indeed. With Thanksgiving coming up, why not do something themed with food for your own little one? I promise they’ll love it and preparing something like this really doesn’t take long at all!

Eating out with Beck has started become much more of a challenge. The only thing that can make things run smoother is if the restaurant provides paper and crayons, then he’ll color happily for the duration of the meal. I was starting to get nervous about Thanksgiving until I saw this genius table cover from Caravan. For just $8 you get:
