    I think this had a lot of great information, but I would have liked to have heard a lot more from the dietician and less random chatter from the other lady, I feel like she kept cutting her off! Very good to know about introducing grains first and then veggies, not to get to fruits too soon because then they’ll want the sweet, very interesting!

    wellI found looking fashionable and it was hard. I know that maternity clothes have come a long way but you just dont feel it because you dont feel like this is your body. Its just really hard to feel like you look good in anything.

    I absolutley agree with you! Fresh is better than canned any day. Even if you don’t have a vitamix (my dream!), even a regular blender adding bananas, cantalope, avocados, etc. You can even grind up raw almonds into almost a powder and add it to your fresh vegetables or fruits. Lots of protein, enzymes, and great gut flora….not to mention the real vitamins!

    i like everything she said EXCEPT how she prefers food from jars over making your own!! Jarred may have all the vitamins but what about the sodium, preservatives and added salt and sugar?! NO THANK YOU! You won’t lose all the vitamins making your own if, just don’t overcook it. I love using my Vitamix to make all her food. It’s so easy, you just boil and blend. I’ve done green peas/beans, zuccini, brocolli, squash, sweet potato, applesauce, pear sauce, peach, strawberry applesauce. I’ll even add kale to her fruits.

    My daughters pediatrician and nutritionist told me at three months old to start my underweight daughter on grains like rice cereal and oatmeal very deluded with her formula it helped her gain a little weight while eating them opposed to just the formula she started having regular bowel movements that she wasnt having on just the formula and as soon as my daughter stopped wanting to eat the grains she started having digestive problems again she is four now and to this day has difficulty with bowel movements

    I agree that you should not force the feeding milestones. I plan to wait till my little one is 4mths before I introduce him to cereal. He is doing just fine with only breast milk. He is happy and health.

    This really confused me. I feel that the information provided in this video is not very accurate at all. I have spoken with several child development specialists, pediatricians, and nutritionists and the only piece of information from this video that was consistent with what I heard from them was to wait until about 6 months. The idea that baby food from the jar is more healthy than fresh vegetables and fruit is ridiculous to me.

  20. tiffanyj says:

    Wow. Worst advice ever. How does this woman have a degree in nutrition?
    Babies can’t digest grains until thier molars come in, around 1 year.
    Jar food with synthetic vitamins added is NEVER going to be as good as home-made REAL food.
    Even doctors are starting to realize that rice cereal is void of nutrition and entirely pointless.

    So disappointed that this misinformation is still being spread. :(
