Has your baby doubled her birth weight?

Though we can’t measure and report how well children are in tune with their bodies, we can measure ourselves and refrain from interfering with this process of growth, as important if not more so than numbers on a scale. This is the way our young become competent directors of their own eating.

How do kids’ tastes change?

If you cater to your children’s tastes from among regular family meals and snacks made of fresh, whole foods, eaten directly or via breastfeeding, then their tastes will develop in tune with their needs. As long as a variety of healthy foods are available, then it is all right for baby to eat or not eat as he wishes.
