Food is an essential part of your baby's development. Choosing the right type of food to give your baby should be well thought out, planned and priority to a mother. The best food for your baby is one you prepare yourself because you will know exactly what is in it. Baby food is easy to prepare because it doesn't need a lot of ingredients in it. The best way is to wash your vegetables and fruits properly and just boil them individually. No need to add any salt, sugar or spices because fruit and vegetables usually have their own natural flavour that will satisfy the baby. Try one food type per feeding until baby is familiar with routine eating, then mashed meat can be added.

Make sure you eat, drink healthy because what you eat and drink is what your little one is also eating through breastfeeding.

Take care not to over shake the formula when you're mixing it with water, as the more shaking u do, the more air bubbles occur, making it hard for tiny tummies to digest, to minimize any issues from shaking formula too much, let the bottle sit n "rest" before serving to your baby.

When baby starts solid foods, try different types of fruits/vegetables daily, it helps in preventing allergies, ie hives,itching and eczema etc.

When introducing different kinds of fruits it helps to cut them into bite sizes and allow babies be able to taste for themselves and explore the various flavours and textures and oh yes mom under your supervision from a distance.

As a first time mommy, I had so many moms giving me advice on breastfeeding and telling me to watch the clock etc. I made sure I fed my baby every 2-3 hours in the first month, after that I did not look at the clock again, I feed when my baby asks me. Don't be to concerned about specific feeding times.

When breastfeeding you as the mom needs to be relaxed and enjoy the time with your little one! have patience especially for first time moms seems to be tense as they do not know what to expect, but if you are calm and relaxed your baby will too be calm and relaxed!

Sit down with your baby then feed him or her slowly and sing a song for him or her while feeding him or her.

Dear beautiful moms out there. As an African lady with African roots, I have seen many African granny's or nannies feeding toddlers solid food before they could even reach 6 months old. This has got a bad impact on the child growth as the tummy is very small to digest such heavy food at their stage. I would love to urge all the moms out there whose kids are being looked after by old nannies or grannies that they should find it necessary to talk to their kids caretaker on how they want their kids to be fed. Proper feeding at an early age prevent the kids from suffering from stomach diseases as they grow old.

Do not give infants solid food at an early age, it will cause constipation, feed them kid's food e.g baby cereal and Purity squiz.

Offer your kids a colourful snack of different fruits and berries, or chop vegetables into interesting shapes to make them seem more fun and exciting.

Understanding your baby's favourite food and how she/he likes it done is very important. Feed in small portion snack with soft fruits. A well fed baby means happy tummy and a happy tummy means a happy baby and peaceful moments with mom❤️

When feeding your baby make sure she or he is in a proper position so that the baby can have enough food.

If you're able to, breastfeeding is best for baby for the first six months. It's helps the baby to develop and bonds with mom easily at the early stages. This is the most natural way to feed your baby and provides all the nutrition your baby needs that satisfies their hunger and thirst at the same time.

Breastfeeding your baby exclusively for the first 4 - 6 months of birth and is what your baby needs. It helps reduces any kinds of sicknesses, it's healthy, free and is always ready to serve (no time costly).

Nothing makes mom happy than seeing her child wear styled clothing with a soft fabric that make a child feel good and look good, so make sure that your child wear comfortable clothes

When baby refuses to eat, get dropper feeder from the nail kit set and squeeze food into the side of the baby's mouth.

Breastfeeding your child up to 24 months is the best nutrition your baby can get.

Mommy, let's breastfeed our babies

Breastfeeding is very important for your baby. Your baby won't get sick much, and it helps with your baby's growth.

Try to keep your baby in his/her routine as much as you can.

The love we share during breastfeeding is unconditional. If you're able to, continue to breastfeed your baby - it's very good and important for your baby

Always make sure your baby's meal is colourful and appetising so it can be easier for them to eat. Feed your baby a well balanced diet and include calcium in their meals to help strengthen their bones. Let's raise healthy, well-fed babies

It's so easy to feed your baby if you are always smiling and talking to your baby. Sing/make up a song that you will both enjoy while feeding - your baby will enjoy feeding time too.

Give your baby 1 solid food at a time for a few days to help determine if he or she is allergic to any of the foods. I tried this and it works!

Before feeding your baby, wash your hands with a bar of soap and rinse with warm water. Dry your hands with a clean towel to prevent the spreading of germs.

When you exclusively breastfeed baby tends to get hungry and as a parent you get tired what I did is expressed my milk and fed him through a bottle

Start with foods that will dissolve easily

If your baby is still in the teething phase, start with foods that will dissolve easily in their mouth. Test it and if it dissolves on your tongue, it’s fine for baby.
