Before having a baby, feeding a baby seemed like a pretty simple task. Give him milk until 4-6 months, and then start solids. No big deal, right? Except that from the moment your baby is born, your life revolves around food, his eating schedule, if he ate enough, and the list goes on. I never expected the anxiety I felt that comes along with making sure your baby is fed correctly. And again, I do this for a living. Although I typically work with older children, I do have experience with infant feeding, so I should know this stuff. Many times I embarrassed to even ask my son’s pediatrician some basic nutrition questions, because I should (and probably do) know the answers. But when it’s your kid, it’s different. Your mind goes blank (or I’ve just lost too many brain cells from lack of sleep), but you need that reassurance that you’re doing it right.
Welcome to “Mommyhood Bites” and thank you for joining me. I am thrilled to make this first post on what I like to call my “hybrid blog”- one part mommy blog, one part food and nutrition, and some random thoughts thrown in. If you are confused by the name, I don’t think mommyhood actually bites in a bad sense (well sometimes, but not really), but instead I hope to share “bites” of wisdom, mistakes, funny stories, and any anything else I think you would enjoy and relate to. I hope you enjoy this blog as much as I enjoy putting it together and I look forward to your comments, advice, and words of wisdom.
