Feeding Baby: All The Rules Have Changed!

When I became a mother, I felt really confident when it came to feeding him. I breastfed without trouble and he started solids around 5 months, followed by all of the allergens. Because I worked in the area of food allergies, I knew that waiting to introduce allergens didn’t prevent allergies. But I have worked with enough moms to know that not everyone has such a smooth path – and ours wasn’t perfect! I did sometimes feel anxiety and had plenty of questions.

Over the past six years, since my son was a baby, things have changed a lot! We invited Malina Linkas Malkani to join us to share her wisdom as a registered dietitian, mom, and expert in child feeding. In this episode, we’ll talk about purees, spoons, and finger foods, as well as lots of resources to help parents feel more confident feeding babies. We also tackle the topic of allergens – including milk, egg, peanut, tree nut, fish, shellfish, wheat, and soy – when and how to introduce these nutritious and delicious foods that sometimes cause a bit of fear when it comes to first introductions.
