Feeding Babies

Do you all know what I want most this morning? To be close to the ocean. It’s been too long since I’ve squished my toes between warm sand.

Guess I’ll have to just dream about it, I don’t think I’ll be seeing the oceans sandy shore anytime soon . . .

Anyhow, moving on! Today I wanted to just pop in real quick to talk about feeding all the babies! Tyrion has been such a good little eater since I started solids at 6 months old, and now at 8 months I feel in a bit of a rut and was searching blogs for inspiration on more healthy foods to incorporate into his diet.

Right now, Tyrions current staples are:

  • Breast Milk
  • Bananas
  • Avocado
  • Organic yogurt
  • Applesauce
  • Acorn Squash
  • Organic Gluten Free Puffs
  • Pureed carrots
  • Earth’s Best Organic Whole Grain Rice Cereal

I try to purchase his fruit organic whenever possible, but boy oh boy is organic $$$! Lately at dinners we have also been sharing with him a little of whatever we are having.

The last few weeks I’ve started to feel like something was missing in his diet but couldn’t pin in down until I did a little research. My little man needs some healthy fats!

I found a blog called Nourishing Our Children, written by a very crunchy mama, so some may take what she says with a grain of salt. She is very extreme in her view, but for the most part I agree largely with what she says. I’m sad I don’t have all the items she discusses at my disposal but I was excited to hear how much coconut oil, butter, and other fats she uses in her daughters diet.

This morning for breakfast Tyrion got some yogurt and also two egg yolks cooked in coconut oil and a small pinch of mineral salt. He loved it so I’m thinking that will be one of our most used breakfasts for now.

Definitely not trying to get into any debate on what or how to feed your child and who really does it right. I simply liked some of the ideas her blog mentioned and will try to incorporate a few of them into my guys diet.

What are the favorites you love to feed your little one?

Happy Friday!!!! Can you believe I got a post up today? I’m floored as well. Winking smile

    Hello and thank you for your lovely blog :)
    I just thought i wild mention that i don;t thing the nourishing our children blog is extreme. I am french and most of food her advice are very traditional in my my country and many other European countries :) In France mothers are recommended to give egg yolks and plenty of butter to their babies, also liver and brains! (because they contain all the vitamins, minerals and good fats that babies need to develop!) For many people this is just the norm, nothing extreme at all :) Peace

      You are right! As I re-read her blog I realized that it isn’t extreme, it just not the norm in what is now sadly the traditional American diet. Thanks for your input. The more I do my research and read, the more I change up what I feed my son for the better!

    Nourishing Our Children changed our lives! Seems extreme until you realize just how far from traditional eating we’ve fallen in our culture. Glad you found what your baby needed :)

      Very true! I am trying to leave behind the “traditional American diet” mentality and yet I still make assumptions based off it. Re-reading her recommendations you are right: it isn’t extreme, it’s amazingly healthy!
