What should I feed baby?

“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:


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.

Don’t see something that you want to know more about? Not sure which resources are best for you? Let us know how we can help!

Speaking of moms, don’t miss these two Mother’s Day giveaways.

  • If you didn’t see our update last month, the Warrior Mom Contest is almost over, with more than $6,000 in prizes awarded already. But there’s still time to nominate a strong, hard-working woman in your life for a chance to win the grand prize, a luxurious spa vacation in sunny Southern California.
  • If you didn’t catch our snapshot of Soap Hope, a natural marketplace on a bold mission to end poverty for women, then now’s the time. Soap Hope is celebrating mothers with a new mom giveaway. We at P2P are contributing a special bonus, so check it out!

Even if you don’t win, you can still grab our postpartum e-book, “7 Keys to a Peaceful Postpartum: What You Need to Know Before Giving Birth to Prepare Yourself for Life with a Baby,” or gift it to an expectant friend or family member this Mother’s Day.


To nourishing babies and celebrating mothers, together we are “Preparing to Parent: Growing Families with Purpose…on Purpose.”

P.S. Check out the P2P resource page, especially the books, if you’re a proactive mom asking questions. And don’t miss the Mother’s Day giveaways from Warrior Mom and Soap Hope. They both end this Sunday!
