Our little guy turned 5 month's old last weekend. Wait. How can that be? Time is moving at warp speed you guys! It's just unbelievable to me how quickly they grow. He is so laid back and happy, so it was no surprise that after rolling his first spoonful of cereal around in his mouth for a minute - his face quickly lit up with a big smile!
We started with organic brown rice cereal and now, we are exploring veggies. It's the perfect time of year too! The fresh organic produce is plentiful at our local farmers market and we have been taking full advantage. Our little guy's favorite so far? Carrots - he can't get enough of them!
Our top Baby Feeding Essentials picks for 4-12 months are:
1.Sage Spoonfuls On The Go Set
We made the choice to exclusively feed our little guy fresh, homemade baby foods. I like knowing where the produce comes from, how it was prepared and that it's free of preservatives. So, Sage Spoonfuls is the perfect companion for this stage of feeding. The "on-the-go" package comes with everything needed to get started. Including: a travel bag, storage container's (BPA free), a food processor, immersion blender, labels, ice pack, recipe booklet, and more. We are loving this system and our little guy really seems to be enjoying our homemade creations so far!
