GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.  (WOTV) — I was so excited to share some great tips and advice for feeding baby with my friend and mommy-to-be Jordan Carson!  If you’re a new mom here’s how to introduce your baby to the world of real food once they are around five months old.  Click on the video player as I walk Jordan and new moms through the first stages of introducing food to your baby!

Stage 1: Choose a single grain cereal.  Once baby is a “supported sitter” they can start to try baby cereal like rice or oatmeal.
