What do you think is better for for a baby, pured table food or jar food?
I have been hearing a lot about babies should eat what the parents eat and that it's more healthier. Then I hear that babies should eat jar food because parents don't always eat healthy. I want to know what others think. I am open to anything.
Fresh food is almost always a better option, for anyone, not just babies.
There are some brands that make jarred baby foods that add sugars and starches, and of course the preservatives added to make sure it has a certain shelf life.
Personally, we never gave our daughter jarred foods or purées. We did baby led weaning which is essentially just giving your baby small bits of food in its natural form (so small pieces of chicken, whole peas, veggies cut up into small pieces that are easy to grab and don't pose a choking risk). It was super easy, and my daughter did really well with it.
While your baby is getting used to eating solids they're still getting a majority of their nutrition from milk, so you don't have to be quite as diligent about making sure everything you offer has certain amounts of nutrients. It's pretty easy to make sure you always have something like bananas or veggies on hand to offer or include as a part of your meals.
Aime is spot on with this one. We are doing the same thing with my daughter right now. She is almost one, but she has not had a lick of jarred baby food at all. She eats most raw veggies, like eggplant, cucumbers, etc. She eats pretty much what we are having, just in bite sized pieces. We have tried to puree some food for her, but she refused to eat it.

My wife and I currently live in a small two bedroom in the Bronx, NY. We have a 15 year old daughter. My wife is pregnant with another on the way, we don't know the sex yet. We plan on moving into a bigger 2 bedroom by the time the newborn turns two years old. The thing is 3 bedrooms are expensive...

Ideas for healthy food for a 1 year old who is picky?My daughter (13mths old) was started on veggies but now hates them. Her diet consists of fruit, whole grain crackers and bread, cheese, yogurt and milk. Outside of those foods I can't find much she will eat. She hates meat and veggies. Any ideas?...

First time parents, what did you think when you first brought your newborn home?When my wife and I got home, we sat on the couch for a long while, and stared at each other and the baby, not quite sure what to do. It was a little strange. I guess we were in shock.

I am 38 with a 7yr old son and married to the same supportive man. He has always wanted a second baby but I wasn't too sure. I am beginning to feel that time is running out for me. When will I be too old!
