So I’m getting myself ready to feed N solids, and I thought it was only fair to start getting him ready, too. I am repeating the 3 things I did to help ready P for solids, 3 things that I think will also help N be a super eater from spoonful 1.

First, I handed him baby spoons

Cheat-Cleaning For Company

by RealMomofNJ on June 22, 2012 in Mom Stuff, Parent Stuff, Random Info, Tips
