Baby Feeding Tips
Posted by Chad Carter
As the parent of an infant, the days of impulsive eating out have been left in the dust of our rear view mirror (for now). Heading to one of our favorite restaurants for a quick dinner is kinda like packing for a week-long camping trip, forging for a high chair that isn’t broken, and bringing along the Dust Buster to clean up the inevitable forest of debris that surrounds our table.
That being said, living in Portland, Oregon with an amazing food scene, we love to venture out to our favorite places every once in a while.
These are the 3 essentials we’ve learned to help us enjoy a dinner out with Baby.

One of my favorite foods is corn on the cob. I love it when it’s drenched in butter, grilled to perfection, and melts in your mouth. Mmm. I have also found that kids love corn on the cob as well. My own kids love feeding themselves and don’t mind making a mess – which is good because corn on the cob is the perfect food to practice self-feeding and can get a little messy. Some moms even use it as a teething remedy for their babies.
Recently I made a delicious discovery – Mexican street corn! There are different add-ons depending on which recipe you follow, but basically these ears of corn are slathered in butter and cheese with a squeeze of lime and a dash of cayenne pepper. Click through the slideshow for a round-up of several Mexican street corn recipes.

I am not a great cook and have a really hard time finding inspiration when it comes to healthy meals for my toddler. I found a recipe on the ever faithful Pinterest while looking for paleo recipes for myself. It was a recipe for pancakes that had ingredients in it that I always have and seemed fairly easy. My type of recipe. I tried the recipe, not expecting much, and surely not anticipating that my toddler would approve. To my surprise, he loved them and devoured them.
Here is the recipe for Baylor’s new favorite breakfast, paleo pancakes.
