Water for Baby

Up until around 6 months, your baby has been completely reliant on breast milk or formula for all of their needs. Then you get the all clear from the pediatrician to introduce solids and water, but how do you actually do it? And how much water does your baby actually need?
Luckily, not very much at first. We recommend introducing water around 6 months to give your baby plenty of time to practice before they really need to be drinking it for hydration.

Easy Avocado Snack – Air Fryer Avocado Fries

Are you looking for an easy avocado snack that’s not guacamole (not that there’s anything wrong with guac)? This recipe is perfect for you! The outside comes out perfectly crisp and crunchy, while the inside stays warm and creamy. Avocados are a popular first food for babies, but due to their slippery texture, they can be challenging for little ones to self-feed. The coating on these fries makes them a little more firm and easier to grab. You can cook them a little less to make them a less crispy for babies who are just starting out.

Are you looking for a super easy, kid-friendly recipe? Let me introduce bread in a bag. This is one of my favorite recipes to do with younger kids who may be a liability with some of the more involved recipes.

This is the perfect recipe to introduce your child to cooking! If you’re looking for some other ways to get your kids in the kitchen, check out my printable!
