Feeding A Baby

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm going to start babysitting my cousin who just turned one. It has been about 15 years since I fed little kids and I hardly remember what to feed them. I know that babies don't eat much so I won't make him anything different than I make for myself. Since we'll be eating together and babies are messy it's just safer for me for him to eat gluten free lunches with me anyway. So, what do I feed a baby? Other than telling me he'll "eat anything" and not to feed him salt his parents aren't providing much guidance on this for me. I know he's too young for my usual salads and fresh veggies or to share a smoothie with me for breakfast. At least breakfast is easy, I can eat before he gets here and throw cheerios at him. (Figuratively of course.)

Steam veggies, put em' front of him. Chicken? Beans?

Anything finger. Orange slices. There are some really

niffy food styling sites, they create such cute plates

for kids. This one is young but we eat with our eyes!

The one thing is wish I would of fed my kids more of?

Olives!

Less of?

Sugar & salt!

Thanks, I don't know why I didn't think of just steaming the veggies. I can't say I've been terribly sharp lately. I refuse to feed him junk. My husband suggested things like canned pastas. Other than the fact that it would lead to needing a bath, I just don't want to feed him that kind of crap. (His mom did mention one of his favorite foods is boxed mac & cheese. :blink: And his dad talks about him eating healthy stuff!) Guess it's time to make friends with google and re-learn how to feed a kid. My biggest concern is simply cc at the table. His eggs this morning became quickly airborne so I suspect it may only take a moment for his food to end up on my plate.

I was lucky enough today to be off the hook already for lunch. I came to my "real" job to teach and left my husband to feed him. As an added bonus I also missed his post-lunch... diaper. B)
