“What should I feed baby?”
“Which first foods are best?”
“How do I transition baby to solids?”
I hear these questions often from new moms, and even mothers-to-be, who are anxious about the prospect of feeding a growing family.
So I guide women through healthy food choices for every stage of the life cycle. But where can you turn if you don’t have a practitioner at your side?
That’s where some well-respected resources come in handy, like these:
- Nourished Beginnings Baby Food: Nutrient-Dense Recipes for Infants, Toddlers and Beyond Inspired by Ancient Wisdom and Traditional Foods. Author Renee Kohley cuts through the confusion about feeding baby with simple, real-food meals that help your child—and your whole family—develop healthy eating habits for life.
- The Fourth Trimester: A Postpartum Guide to Healing Your Body, Balancing Your Emotions, and Restoring Your Vitality. Kimberly Ann Johnson’s groundbreaking guide provides modern women with practical tools for postpartum healing on the physical, mental, emotional, energetic, and relational levels. If you enjoyed our New Mom Success Series, this is a great adjunct.
These are just a few of the titles we review on the P2P website. Have you checked out the resource page lately? We share books that cover preconception planning through parenting, plus a handful of stage-appropriate cookbooks.
