You’ve decided that the time is right to start feeding solid foods to your baby. Congratulations! The next step is to create an environment to encourage your little guy in his new adventure. Here are some tips for creating a friendly solid food feeding zone:
- Your baby’s feeding area should be a happy place to be. Use baby’s mealtime as quality time for bonding with your beautiful baby.
- Make silly faces at your baby, smile, and talk to her during mealtime.
- Allow your baby to participate as much as possible in the feeding process.
- Praise the good ignore the bad. Try making a game of eating to prevent food on the floor.
During your baby’s first meal, he should develop a sense of trust and relaxed mealtimes are part of the process. Your baby will actually grow and develop better if he is feed in a loving environment.
