What to Feed Your Infant: Resources

These resources accompany my Udemy course on Feeding Your Little Ones. If you know of additional resources that may be helpful, please leave them in the comments here or under the discussion tab on Udemy. I hope you enjoyed the lectures; as usual I welcome your feedback, comments and questions.

Books

Websites

  • Wholesome Baby Food – great recipes and info on both making your own purees and finger feeding
  • Kelly Mom –  Starting Solids while breastfeeding; generally nice source of breastfeeding info in general although some references outdated
  • Baby Led Weaning group on BabyCenter – see esp. their BLW FAQ post; good place to ask questions of other moms doing BLW
  • Rapley weaning –  a wealth of information from the woman who wrote the original book on BLW, again I don’t necessarily agree with all of her ideas about feeding (esp. re: never doing spoon feeding) and there are some good suggestions here.
