I’m a part of a million mom groups on social media and I’ve noticed a trend on what is talked about within the group. It’s usually other moms giving their medical diagnoses, complaining about husbands who don’t understand and what our little ones are eating. Once you have your own child, you think you’re an expert on parenting, don’t deny it… we all think our way is the right way. Well, not all children are the same. Maybe your 12 month old is a pro at eating solids but someone else’s 12 month old might not be even close to being ready to start solids. This is when its best to seek out expert opinions, rather than trying to see what Betty from the mom group is doing with her child.

As you know, I have four kids. I was a teen mom with my first set of twins and honestly didn’t even think about researching what was right/wrong when it came to feeding them. I had no clue. I mean what 18 year old does? Well, when I had my next set of twins (yes… I have two sets of twins) I was older, mature and had a lot of parenting experience under my belt. Starting solids has always been a scary situation in my eyes even if I thought I was a “professional mom”. Will they choke? Can this dissolve in their mouth? Am I cutting these grapes the right way? It’s stressful!
I’ve recently discovered that Happy Family Organics has an amazing service on their website! I’ve tested it out and LOVE it. You can chat with their Cornell-Certified Nutritionists (who are also all mamas!) every day of the week! They also have lactation specialists too if you have questions about breastfeeding. How amazing is that? You don’t need to search in your mom groups for uncertain answers, you have EXPERTS right at your finger tips!
I know that feeling of not knowing if you’re doing the right thing. With my first set of twins, I introduced solids before 12 months. The second time around I heard that saying “food before one is just for fun” so I was more hesitant to introduce new foods. Getting an expert opinion can really help ease your mind and make you feel like you’re doing the right thing for your child.
