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.
Stage 2: Start with soft foods that are easy to digest like sugar-free applesauce, bananas or avocados.
Stage 3: Blend up baby food like squash & pear, sweet corn, sweet potato and more!
Stage 4: Let baby sample new fruits with a mesh bag feeder.
