American Values Can't Be Preserved Without Religion
"By I'll the way, I was going to raise as atopic of our podcast today. Of the issue of God and the Bible ironically, which you just perfectly led a segue to and that you have come to take them seriously. I just interviewed yoram has only an Israeli and American moved to Israel many years ago and his family's obviously Israeli. Hebrew speaking, they also fluent in English. And he's one of the leading conservative thinkers in the world today, and he just wrote a book on conservatism. So he summarized, I always ask people to summarize their ideas. And summarize them, you're not going to win any, anybody over. You need to be able to say things concisely. Not tritely but concisely. So he said, yes, so fine. Here's conservatism, and he said, let's see. It's religion, nationalism, and economic freedom. And I said, that is exactly what I have argued with the American Trinity. E pluribus Unum in God we trust liberty. And he said, that's right. In other words, so he had put in his words exactly what I had been saying for decades is the American value system, as you know, from still the best hope. And so he said religion, I said in God we trust because I took it from our coins. He said economic freedom, I said liberty. He said bash of and I said E pluribus Unum for many one. That's nationalism. What is the one? The one is the one nation of American. So that's, that's what we stand for. And then I developed the discussion with him. The catastrophe of America and even of many conservatives is that they thought that they could preserve these values without in God we trust. Without religion,

Douglas Petrovich on Hieroglyphics and the Hebrew Alphabet
"So you're telling me that we know and everybody would agree that whatever the first alphabet was, the first written language that uses alphabetics was derived we know from Egyptian hieroglyphics. Now, is that because of is it the letter a that looks like a bull or an upside down bull? How do we know that Egyptian hieroglyphics lead to the first alphabet? Well, we know for several reasons. One of which is that in its earliest form. And by the way, the earliest inscriptions were found in several sites in Egypt and several sites in Sinai southwestern Sinai. So from those early inscriptions, we know that at that stage, at that phase, the alphabetic script was extremely what we call pictographic, which means it's as if you were drawing something and anyone looking at the drawing could clearly tell what you were drawing because of the picture. So that is what was borrowed very clearly and again, agreed on by all scholars. That was drawn from hieroglyphics. And as time went along, Eric in the second millennium BC and by the way, that's the 19th century BC is when it started. Our earliest attested alphabetic letter is 1842 BC and the oldest inscription is 1840 BC. So as then time went along, the script evolved if you don't mind the term, in such a way that it became less and less pictographic. And if you think about it, that's really logical because you wouldn't want people to spend so much time writing every single letter drawing a well, you know, with good curvature, all of the forms of a picture. But if you could make it more abstract if you could write it faster, then it would speed up the entire writing.

The Market Recovered on Monday, But Will It Stick?
"I want to turn to the market right now because the market did recover thankfully on Monday and trading, but I'm not convinced that it's going to stick. And I'm not convinced it's going to stick in part because of all these inflationary concerns. We've got going on. Look, the Federal Reserve, a day late, a dollar short typical. They could have done more. They should have done more. I wonder if Joe Jerome Powell was just too interested in keeping his job, right? Don't forget he was up for renewal. Maybe he wanted to just get, you know, another posting and figured if I'm out there upping rates and cutting back on quantitative easing money printing, maybe I won't get renewed. Maybe they'll give it to that gal. Leo brainard, who I think probably, you know, should have gotten it. I sure as heck hope that she would have been a lot smarter than Jerome Powell, because Jerome Powell, and he's not entirely responsible. I realize it's a board of governors, but he should have been leading more because all the evidence was there. We were going to have mass inflation, and yet he allowed it to go on, maybe because of this appointment, but he will go down in history now. I suspect, as the worst fed chief

The WEF's Goals Pose a Specific, Targeted Threat to the American Way
"In Davos Switzerland right now and everything that impacts your pocketbook and your livelihood actually goes through Davos more than Washington D.C.. The puppeteers of Joe Biden the people that are actually pulling the strings are the ones right now in Switzerland. Unfortunately, because America is not as strong as it once was, especially under this president. There's more power being concentrated in the hills of Switzerland than in our own land. Now the power in America could be re invigorated almost instantaneously. With proper leadership and proper vision. But here's the 8 predictions for the world for 2030. Now, they changed some of the branding and some of the wording. Because it was a little bit too, let's say it was a little bit too spicy. Number one, you'll own nothing and you'll be happy. This is a goal, a prediction by 2030. Now they word it differently on their website as of today. They say all products will have become services, quote, I don't own anything. I don't own a car, I don't own a house, I don't any apply. I don't own any appliances or clothes. Shopping is a distant memory in the city of 2030, whose inhabitants have cracked clean energy and borrow what they need on demand. It sounds utopian until she mentions that her every move is tracked and outside the city lives in swathes of discontent and the ultimate depiction of a society splits into. The second one, there is a global price on carbon. China took the lead in 2017 with the market for trading, the right to emit CO2, setting the world on a path towards a single carbon price and a carbon tax. Goal number three, which is the U.S. will no longer be the world's superpower. U.S. dominance is over. We'll have a handful of global powers. Nation states will upstage to come back. And America will no longer be the world's superpower. Western values will be have tested to a breaking point. What are western values? Separation of powers. Consent of the governed. Western values are what keep us together. Western values are the best way to design and run a civilization. Some people say, well, Charlie, how dare you say western values are better than other values. Well, I think it's a good thing that we have the presumption of innocence. I think it's a good thing that we have a protection of individual and constitutional rights. Western values are derived from the teachings of the Bible. They are human rights. Western values respect the right to speech assembly to run for office, independent judiciary, that not one person should be able to control. There's western values are that the few should not be able to rule the many, but the many should be able to rule the few.
The World Economic Forum Hides in Plain Sight
"But what's interesting about the World Economic Forum is they hide in plain sight. You see, instead of trying to do it all secretly, the elites of the world said, well, what if we actually lead with our greatest vulnerabilities? You see, the World Economic Forum led by Klaus Schwab, a German engineer, they engage in their activity in forums and in panels and speeches instead of smoke filled rooms or private meetings. Those happen as well. But you see, they've decided to design a paradoxical communication strategy. Where the treachery is televised. Listen to Klaus Schwab and cut three, say the future here is built by us by a powerful community as you are here in this room. The stakeholders of larger communities as we collaborate. Now for those of you that are James Bond fans as I am, I love the James Bond series for a variety of different reasons until they've gone woke, which seems they are going woke. There is a, I think rather entertaining and well written James Bond film called Specter. The villain in that film is acted out by an individual by the name of Christoph Waltz, who is also German, and he dresses the same as Klaus Schwab the entire movie is about how the world elites all meet hiding in plain sight at opera houses and other public areas to design how they are going to take over the world. Play cut three. The future is not just happening. The future is built by us by a powerful community as you here in this room. We have some means to improve the states of the world, so that we act all a stakeholders of larger communities that we serve not our only self interests, but we serve the community and second that we collaborate. Straight out of central casting for the Bond

The One Question Chip Lake Asks Every Potential Candidate
"Campaigns are still about fundamentals. The outside messages, everything else, but there's still an inherent basis. Do you think you might have been an outsider in his messaging, but he was a real insider when it came to understanding money. The team, he had his former his cousin, was a former governor, Georgia. So there's a lot there. This leads really and it's a perfect setup shift where I want to go next for people out there because I want people in this podcast. If you're out there wanting to run for office, from someone lower offices up, especially the congressionals and others. There's a process to doing this. When you look at a campaign. Because I know how people to a candidates do it. You know, oh, I want to go win. I can win, I got you a mama almost been a win, I'm a cousin down the street and says I can do it. But when it comes to campaigns, you as a consultant, your general consultant had on, how do you start laying that out for a candidate? Because I'm concerned that you got consultants now that are seeing it almost like some of these candidates. This is easy. I can make money and I'm not really concerned about the result. Yeah, no question. I mean, you know, as I said, I'm not doing campaigns in elections. This cycle, but in every campaign that I've always done, you know, I would always sit down with a candidate before the campaign began. And I would ask them this question, why are you running? And you can learn a lot about how they answer that question at the beginning of a campaign, right? And that doesn't mean that, you know, that doesn't mean it can candidate has to answer that question. The right way. I mean, it's really, it can be a difficult question to answer because it's a really basic question. And there campaigns are ready for very difficult questions. But, you know, why are you running is it? Is it difficult question, right? Because you need to get to your message in a hurry and if you can't really explain to somebody while you're running in 30 to 45 seconds and kind of build upon it, then you need to refine that. You need to learn how to do
Arizona's Gubernatorial Candidate Karrin Taylor-Robson on Inflation
"About inflation as well. Huge issue here in Arizona, rents are going up. You said 40% year over year. Year over year in the class C apartments, which are the lowest priced apartment rents. That's always the bell weather. And when those prices start coming up, people are getting priced out of any type of housing. And on the single-family homes, we have about two weeks supply in the Phoenix market. So it is a seller's market right now. And that's why prices are going up the way they are. And, you know, I am a free market capitalist. This is about supply and demand. We have more people moving to Arizona and we can't deliver fast enough to the market because it's not just the rising prices or part of the reason that we're having the rising prices is we can't get the supplies. You can't get Windows. You can't get toilets. You can't, you know, our home builders could sell more houses, but they can't build them. Not only can they not get supplies, but they don't have the workers to build the houses. So it's quite a conundrum. And it's going to take a while to work itself out. And then you add on top of that, inflation. And energy prices, which is leading to the inability to have a functioning supply chain. It's a mess. And I lay the blame right at the feet of Joe Biden in this administration. And Phoenix, you could say with groceries and gas, rent, I mean, it's 40 to 45% more expensive this year than last year. And
Voting Surges in Georgia Despite New Election Integrity Law
"In Georgia, where they promised that votes would be suppressed because of Georgia's new election integrity law. Early voting for the leading up to the primary is surging record numbers of voters in the state of Georgia.

But why don't you apologize for promising that votes would be suppressed by George's new voter integrity? Election integrity law. Their whole narrative is falling apart. It's coming undone.

"Actually help. Prevent cow's milk allergy down the road but parents and caregivers get confused because they also here. Well wait a minute. Babies aren't supposed to have fluid cow's milk until they turn age one and not is true. We don't replace breast milk or formula with cow's milk until after the baby is one but we can use yogurt as a really age appropriate way to introduce baby to that all important. Cow's milk protein and in today's episode. I'm going to give you a few quick tips that you can employ at the grocery store to find a few options for your baby to do this safely. Now let's talk about the particulars of yoga when it comes to babies and when we're talking about what type of yogurt babies can eat sometimes families. We'll say can you just tell me what brand to buy. Say we'll know because brands differ from depending upon where you are geographically in the united states or in the world and we want to just avoid a few things. There's kind of some parameters for checking out yogurt but when we're talking about yogurt. I'm talking about like yogurt. That is not marketed for babies. And i'll talk a little bit more about baby food yogurt but it's one of my pet peeves if you've listened to the podcast for any length of time yogurt that his marketed to parents as being specific for babies is ridiculous because babies can eat regular yoder with some caveats so there are actually even this. Just sleighs me. Some baby food yogurt brands that have added sugar in them. We don't feed added sugars to babies. There's some naturally occurring sugar yogurt. It comes from sugar of milk lactose. We don't need to go adding sugar organic sugar. Sugar is sugar is sugar. You don't need to buy a baby food yogurt for your baby. Your baby can eat adult yogurt but not most of them so back to why we do. It mentioned earlier that it's in order to help prevent cow's milk allergy if you want to learn more about milk protein and why. We do this early and often check out episode thirteen. It's called milk protein. How to introduce your baby to this potentially allergenic food. So how can we do yogurt. If yogurt is a puree and baby led weaning you quote unquote. Don't do pure as well. You actually can incorporate periods with baby led weaning periods are important texture for babies to learn how to eat. They're just not the only texture that they can so we would use the pre loaded spoon approach whereby you put the yogurt on the spoon. Once you figure out which one to do it and offered to your baby in such a manner that allows the baby to sell feed and yes. This can start as early as six months. If you're not familiar with that approach. I have a whole different episode in an interview with don winkelmann. She is a speech language. Pathologist and baby led weaning expert. She designed the tiny spoon. Which is an award. Winning baby led weaning spoon for the company. Easy peasy if you wanna check out that episode. It's called pure as plus baby led weaning with as lp feeding expert don winkelmann and if you guys are in the market looking for some baby led weaning spoons i do love that tiny spoon from easy peasy if you go to easy peasy fund dot com the code katie ten works for ten percent off and that is my affiliate discount code. So when do you offer the overture baby. As i mentioned at around six months of age. Sure you could scoop it onto a spoon and shove it into a baby's mouth earlier than that but the whole point of baby led weaning is at the baby is driving the feeding and that happens at around six months of age now. Some parents might get worried. And oh my gosh. I was told never to do any cow's milk and now my baby's almost one if you haven't done yogurt early and often around six months of age it's not too late we at the one year. Mark want baby to transition to cow's milk which can offer other cow's milk containing foods if you check out episode one thirteen. It's called transitioning to cow's milk. And how do i do this. There are particulars in there for older babies. But let's go back to. Let's say you're getting ready to start solid foods. Yogurt is one of the best ways to introduce cow's milk protein. You're at the grocery store. Which type of yogurt do you buy. There's two things that we want to look for when we're selecting yogurt for baby led weaning. The first one and these are not in any order of importance. They're equally important is that you're choosing plain yogurt. Not vanilla not fruited. Not whatever else is out there. We want plain yogurt and plane is because it has no added sugar so even when you see like fruited yogurt at the store read the ingredients. There will be added sugar in there. And there's actually no actual fruit in there if you as an adult who can tolerate different textures together. Because you've been eating for years would like to have fruited yogurt. You take regular yogurt and then you take chrysler fruit and you can combine them together but fruited yogurt as you know if you stir it up and it looks like they're strawberries in there. Read the ingredient list. There's going to be zero grams of fiber indicating that there's a minimum amount of real fruit if any and they're almost certainly be added sugars and again look at the added sugars lying on your food label. It should be at zero for babies vanilla. Sometimes trips people up is ago. Looks like plane. It looks like lane but it. The vanilla flavouring has added sugar. And so we don't wanna do that for babies. The second thing we look for after it having no added sugar is that were trying to select full-fat or whole milk yogurt. Hey so we want to avoid to the greatest extent possible non fat or reduced fat or low fat or skimmed milk products. Is it the end of the world if your baby has a bite of plane. Skim milk yogurt. No of course. Not but if you're going to the store to buy something that your baby can eat. Select the full fat or whole milk version because babies need that fat for their brain development. Now of course early on baby's not eating foods for quote unquote nutrition but as they get in the habit and the weaning process. That's in which is starting to get more nutrition from food and less nutrition from milk. Babies will be needing to get fat from other sources besides breast milk or formula. So we want to make sure that we're purchasing the right kind so sometimes parents will ask well. What percent am i looking for. There are certain brands where it's five percent indicates that that's a quote unquote whole milk product. Just stay away from the two percent and the one percent but again. It's not the end of the world if your baby has some it's just if you're purchasing this regularly look for the whole milk again to take away. Messages are no added sugar and that it's a whole milk or full fat yogurt. Now you have to go to your grocery store and do a little bit of sleuthing and don't get overwhelmed by the vast majority of what's in the yogurt islets. These value foods with the perception of this has more probiotics or this has a more of xyz nutrient some of them have fiber in them. Which is asinine because dairy foods. Don't have fiber in them. And we don't want your baby getting full of all of these fake or isolated functional fibers. That are sometimes added to yogurts. That are technically diet foods for adults so go back to basics find a store brand whole milk no added sugar now. What about baby food yogurt. The one that kills me is when you go to the isle of baby food at the grocery store and their shelf stable yogurt. There is one brand out there and it's laughable because if you're yogurt shelf stable. It clearly not yogurt. So many additives and preservatives and certainly added sugar in those. Just stick to the refrigerator. Dial and get real yogurt. I mentioned probiotics. parents sometimes. Does my baby need to have added. Probiotics and i actually did a whole interview. Episode is episode. one eight called probiotics. Should your baby taking probiotics. And i did that. With james dahlia merrin. They're registered dietitians. Who specialize in gut health and functional medicine. They did a really nice summary of the very very limited range of babies who would benefit from probiotics. but the vast majority babies would not need or benefit from supplemental probiotics. And when you offer your baby regular yogurt with live active cultures they're going to be eating a probiotic food so you don't need to go. Buy a value added yogurt. That costs a lot. More is is not going to be any benefit for the most part so if you wanna learn more about probiotics again check that out. It's episode one. Oh eight and once you do yogurt you can offer it regularly. But don't get in the habit of offering every meal some parents like oh my gosh. My baby loves yogurt. Yesterday's is a tad on the sweet side because it has that milk shudder his easy to serve. But we don't offer anyone food to baby day in day out. They really need to be seeing variety. So i hope you guys got a little bit of knowledge about how to select a yogurt for baby led. Weaning don't get bogged down by the brand. I don't give recommendations because they vary so much there's two or three options at most grocery stores that will work for you and once you figure it out you can put it on your shopping list and it can't be a food that you offer to your baby early and often again not every day. Thanks.

"Like to start. Each of these. Mini baby led weaning trainings with a b. L w tip of the day two days tip about iron is your baby. Does it actually have to eat the eleven milligrams of iron that you read all over the place that babies need from seven to twelve months parents will look it up and they'll say oh my baby who's age seven or twelve months needs eleven milligrams of iron and then they'll automatically think that it all has to come from food and that is really far from the truth remember. Breast milk and formula is still providing. Most of your baby's nutrition needs during leaning and that includes iron so if you're breastfeeding your milk iron although it's not a ton of iron it's actually very highly available meaning. Your baby absorbs a lot of the iron from your breast milk. And if you're feeding. Formula formula is of course fortified with iron. It's actually fortified at twelve milligrams of iron per liter so leader which thousand mills is approximately thirty four ounces. Basically about what most six months babies are drinking give or take a few ounces so as we add in foods and babies learn to eat foods including high iron foods then gradually the amount of nutrition which is calories plus other nutrients including iron that nutrition starts to come more from food and less from milk weaning in action. but if you're not introducing iron foods your baby. Then as the breast milk or formula intake declines as it should with weaning. We could be in trouble if you're not making up that gap with iron foods so early on in feeding. Please don't stress about this eleven milligram iron number. I'm going to talk more about that. Eleven milligram number in a second. Your baby will get there. I promise but it doesn't happen

"Of these mini. Bmw trainings with a baby led weaning tip of the day. My tip for you today like it is a lot of time about sodium because when we're thinking about canned goods or foods that can stay on the shelf for awhile. Oftentimes manufacturers will use sodium. Because of course it is the cheapest preservative but babies should not have significant amounts of added sodium. So i'd love for you to keep your eyeballs on the food labels my general rule of thumb when i'm selecting an item. That's in a package that i'm going to serve to my baby. I like to see less than one hundred milligrams of sodium per serving and there's no hard and fast guidance about how much added salt babies can or should have we wanna keep it as low as possible. I feel comfortable with the hundred because most of the foods that feeding my baby do not come out of a package so when they do a little bit of sodium is inevitable but also the serving size that's posted on the labels that's for adults and babies typically eat less than that so just keep your eyeballs on the sodium and let's dive in looking at some pantry items. You can have on hand when you're starting solids with baby led weaning. I'm gonna be sharing some of the different categories of and then some of my favorite items from those foods in this episode. But it's kind of a lot. So i went ahead and made a download for you guys called. The baby led weaning pantry planner. And i'm going to link to that for the show notes for this episode if you go to be l w podcast dot com forward slash ninety. One that's where you can find the download that will itemize all of the things about to talk about that. I think are handy to have on hand when you're starting solids and i don't know about you guys but my pantry. It's always kind of a hot mess. Like i go through them. Like what was i thinking about this. We actually did a pantry. Challenge was a ten day pantry. Challenge at the very beginning of covid. And i ended up with some weird stuff by trade but i used a lot of weird stuff in my pantry and it really showed me that. There's almost no food can't feed to a baby obviously want to stay away from added sugars. we don't give honey to babies but you tell me what's in your patriot and i can probably find a way that you could use it. But since we can't go through everyone's pantry. I went through my pantry and organized categories that shovels fruit legumes seafood as well as some dry goods and miscellaneous items that. I think you might be interested in. So let's start with the vegetables. You can make literally almost any version of fresher frozen vegetables work for baby led weaning and make it safe and can't veggies can work well to you just have to keep an eye on the sodium so look for no added salt versions of canned vegetables a couple that i love artichoke hearts. I love cooking. But i just don't like dealing with raw artichokes. There are some canned versions. The can tend to be lower and sodium than jarred artichokes. I'm you still want to make sure they pass the squish test. Meaning that if you push the artichokes between your thumb and your forefinger. There's a little bit of give but to our great one beats. I do not love cooking. Beats i feel like i'm sounding kinda negative in this episode. Not meaning super beets are just one of my least favorite foods. I can't stand the smell of them cooking. So when i feed them to my babies i do it out of a can green beans. I love fresh green beans for adults but no matter how well you cook them they're still too stringy for babies. You can certainly do certain types of frozen ones but you can find canned green beans. That are very low. in sodium. Tomatoes are another great canned vegetables and other technically of fruit. But you can find added salt versions. When you're reading your labels you might see like no added salt low sodium reduce sodium. What's the difference no added salt as your best bet low-sodium just means a hundred and forty milligrams or less remember like a hundred milligrams or less so if you can do no added salt. That's preferable over the low sodium versions and then reduce sodium just means twenty five percent less salt than the regular version of that. So you do need to read labels pretty closely. 'cause like a beans might look the same but have three different levels of sodium suggest. Read the labels when it comes to canned fruit. Canned fruit can be a little bit tricky. Because these items tend to have added sugar or syrups. But you can find unsweetened versions of canned fruits some of the ones. I love our unsweetened applesauce. I love the are. You actually can get a cherry's that are canned some of them come in syrup but there's definitely cherries the compact only in water and they're already pitted for you. Which is a nice convenience jack fruit. You can find in the grocery store without added sugar. That's shelf stable. Pineapple a love canned pineapple. I like to do the rings and then cut them in half again. Make sure it's packed in. Its own juice not in syrup and then can pumpkin is a great one. You wanna make sure that you're offering your baby. The canned pumpkin puree only and not the pumpkin pie. Mix if you guys are interested in pumpkin stuff. I have a full episode. That did all about how to use canned pumpkin episode sixteen nine. It's called pumpkin. Five easy ways your baby can safely eat. Pumpkin legumes are another great category. When your pantry planning legumes are just dried. Peas and beans. They're amazing foods for babies because they're packed with plant protein and fiber and iron. Now you're earlier eaters they're not gonna be able to pick up the release small-sized beans like black beans and kidney beans until they get their pincer grasp happens by about nine months of age some of the really small legumes. They are exactly the size. That could aclu's your babies airway when they're early on in eating so i recommend waiting a little bit until the baby's a little bit older ten months generally feel more comfortable. Doing some of those can legumes. Also because they can pick them up. But i still will flatten things. Like black beans are bonds. Opens kidney beans. I flatten them with my thumb. I'm just like blueberries up until the time. The baby is one or longer if you feel like you need to. If you're doing can't garbanzo beans. i like to slip the bean out of the skin. Flatten it with my thumb. You can certainly find a lot of varieties of no added salt canned legumes. That worked for baby led weaning some of the ones i love or things like black beans garbanzo beans kidney beans pinto beans and as always looking for no added salt varieties of those next category of pantry. Items can't food. You might be like whoa. She's always talking about cans seafood. And if you listen to some of the earlier episodes. I do love talking about canned foods. Because i mean i love fresh frozen foods as much as the next person but i also hate going to the grocery store so if i can have stuff in my pantry when i'm trying one new food today day for my baby i do it. I have a whole separate episode on canned foods. If you go to episode number seventy five. That was canned. Foods that can work for baby led weaning. Check that out but when it comes to seafood anchovies clams salmon sardines tuna of keeping in mind that fish and shellfish are two separate categories of the potentially allergenic foods. But if you're not inclined to make fresh or frozen clams you can get canned versions now. A lot of the seafood is naturally high in minerals including sodium. So just look for the ones that don't have any added salt but know that there will be some sodium when you're buying those canned fish items but have them on hand. When it's time to do fish day you'll be happy that you have a tin of no added salt boneless skinless anchovies on hand. And what about dry goods so depending upon your cooking and baking abilities or desires. We all have differing levels of dry goods already stocked pantry but a few of the ones that i like for baby led weaning. I'm almond flour is a great one really easy way to introduce your baby to the potentially allergenic food tree nut on my us on our no added. Sugar baked good recipes or for bill. W pancakes oats are another. Good one did a whole episode. Forty-seven all about oatmeal. And how you can safely feeding your baby. But things like quick cookie notes overnight. Steel cut oats. They all work for bmw again. Checkout episode forty seven for more oatmeal stuff. Panko i'm a huge fan of japanese style bread crumbs called panko. They're lowering sodium than traditional breadcrumbs. Go craig in. Baby led weaning fritter recipes or role slippery foods in super super versatile food. You might not have recognized the low sodium option pasta of course regular white. Pasta is fine whole wheat. Free whatever you wanna do. I like the longer sized pieces that babies can pick up things like penny or rigatoni or cava. I'm rice's a dry good. If your family's rice i mean i think it's like the hardest baby weaning food to clean up and at certain My least favorite but it goes great in a rice patio. Baller fritter that you can cook and have your baby self feet. Another staple to have on hands are wheat. Germ or wheat bran. These are high. Iron powdered items are not only great for baking with. But you can also like roll. Those more slippery baby led weaning foods in as well they also have iron and then whole grains i mean checkout whole grains like farro or bulgar keen wa if you find yourself getting stuck in that potatoes rice pasta carb rut nothing wrong with those foods but there's lots more carbohydrate containing foods babies can eat including whole grains. I like the ones. I usually order them. Online bob's red mill. They've got a great variety of whole grains on that site. Just get some sent to your house and then we can chat about you. Use them a couple of other miscellaneous foods that you might find helpful to have in your pantry. I like gavi syrup it. Don't use a ton of it but if there's a recipe the calls for one or two tablespoons of honey we don't feed honey two babies until they're each one we don't do added sweeteners. But a god is considered to be a natural sweetener. Get use it in moderation. Just small amounts baby. Shouldn't be eating a lot of sweet foods to begin with but having a guy on hand is helpful for substitution recipes. Broth i like to do low. Sodium no added salt broths either or super helpful in making soft slow cooked cuts of meat and just making him safe for babies eat. You can also make soups and stews So low and no sodium broths work great and sort of seasoning like by aaa in the little aaa chilies in adobo sauce. For example some brands are low sodium version. So just start reading those labels if you want like seasoning mixes allowed himself just behalf salt but ones out. there that aren't coconut. Milk is another great canned item unsweetened coconut milk adds flavor and fat to your family meals. Again i know. I'm running through a lot of foods here. I'm going to link up that download with all of these same items in the pantry planner. Download that's available on the show notes for this episode at b. l. w. podcasts dot com forward slash. Ninety one. Another favorite. One are prunes dried. Sticky fruits like prunes definitely a choking hazard for babies but you can make a homemade prune periods safely which is especially helpful for constipation. So i have a blog. Post called help. My baby constipated. It's one of the most heavily trafficked parts of my website. 'cause there's a recipe at the end of that bog for a homemade apple. Prune puree a link that blog in the show notes again for this episode at bmw podcast dot com forward slash ninety one and want to end it with vinegar. Vinegar helps introduce babies to a new taste a sour but some of the season vinegars specially seasoned rice. Vinegar will have added salt but regular unseasoned vendors. Do not have salt and it's a great pantry item to have on hand when you're starting baby led weaning so again grab that download. The pantry planner. If you want more detail on all of these items.

"Milligrams of sodium per serving. If i'm going to offer to my baby so for more information about limiting sodium for your baby go checkout episode number thirty three. It's all about salt. It's called salt three easy ways to minimize sodium for your baby for more information about limiting sodium for your baby. Go check out a previous episode. That i did with episode thirty three. It's all about salt three easy ways to minimize sodium for your baby. If you're like wait a minute why she talking so much about salt. If you listened to the podcast regularly ugo. Yeah she's always talking about salt and you might have ruled out the frozen foods. I also this episode is gonna make you fall back in love with frozen foods for baby led weaning but hang tight. Because i'm going to be sharing actual five favorite freezer. I'll fines in this episode. So let's dive in and learn a little bit about freezer. Aisle fines for baby led weaning so quick story before i get started whenever i talk about frozen foods someone inevitably will say. I've heard the grocery store you're supposed to skip the middle aisles and shop the perimeter. Now this is in some ways a good recommendation. This is generally attributed to michael palin in his book food rules and eaters manual michael palin well known food journalist and author. He wrote stay out of the middle of the supermarket shop the perimeter of the store. Now there are lots of great foods throughout the store. And i agree with michael paulin like most of the process. Package junk is living in the middle aisles. But i kind of just take a little bit with that because the canned food i ll is a great opportunity for babies. In episode seventy five went all through canned foods that can work for baby led weaning and also there's foods like lentils dried peas and beans and the whole freezer iowa. There are some good fine. So when i was after graduate school i taught nutrition at uc. Berkeley i taught fulltime energetics program and i was like the youngest faculty member so i got the crappiest teaching assignments and then i also got the crappiest classroom but i always would volunteer to teach summer because everyone else didn't want to and i want to make extra money and i remember getting stuck with my nutrition class in at berkeley normally were in the nutrition classes in the nutrition building in the school public health building but this one particular summer class for whatever reason i got stuck in the journalism building ever remember. It was the same summers that aaron rodgers was in my class. That was my claim to fame. Is new teachers. Aaron rodgers in my class and everyone always asked what his grade was. And i think it would be a violation of some sort. If i told you. I don't remember what it was regardless. I didn't even know who. Aaron rodgers was at the time. Michael palin was much more on my radar as far as like celebrities go and he was teaching in the journalism school at uc berkeley. At that time. And i remember. He came into my class one day and just sat in the back row in top. Like watch me teach nutrition and is a smaller class because it was summer but we were talking about processed and packaged food. So i saw him. Of course i do. He was very striking. Presence like looms very large in the world of journalism at uc berkeley. I remember just bringing up the issue of the conundrum of the shopping the perimeter like someone very famous one said referencing him and then talking about you know what potentially helpful foods you could find in the middle kind of quizzing. My students and a few of them were foods that you could find in the middle so he kind of snickering and laughing. He said no no. You're right there are some good foods you can find in the middle of the supermarket. He just kind of stopped in to see like what were they teach in about in the summer in his building. Very nerve wracking as a professor of michael walk on your class but was kinda cool that we could have him. Talk a little bit about that because i know shop. You the printers. A good idea but there are good foods. that'll aisles. And even michael palin would tell you that but they're not all created equal so let's look at the frozen foods that do work for baby led weaning all right so let's get right down to it. I don't need to tell you about all the foods that don't work in the frozen food aisle. Let's focus on all the foods that babies can eat right of course frozen dinners and frozen pizzas and food with lots of salt and sugar. Babies should not have a lotta those foods in the frozen food aisle. I'm gonna go through five of my favorite foods for baby led weaning. This is not an exhaustive list. Every time i do. I start with a list of like thirty things and then i'm like that will be too long narrow down to five. Here's five of my favorite foods. I love cauliflower rice. I love regular call from. There's a million different as you may call safe for babies to eat. I don't offer call prices like a lower calorie low carb option like the reason. Why a lot of adults he cauliflower rice. I think it's a really cool way to impart a different flavor in different foods and it's a convenience food normally would not. I'm pretty frugal. I would not spend money on many produce convenience foods. Like no thank you. I can cut up watermelon by myself. I don't need you to quintupled the price and do it for me. But coffers rice is one that is a pain in the neck to make and you can find it in the frozen food aisle. How do you use it for baby led weaning. I like to call for race when i make fritters. It's already all chopped up. Its rice like a very very fine dice consistency or size. I guess more so than consistency. So you can use it in if you're baking like zucchini muffins. I'll sometimes add. Call rice in there. I'll add it to fritters or patties as a vegetable. If i'm five just like some leftover grains like oh shoot. I don't wanna just make grains and eggs in my put the cauliflower rice in it. I'm you can use it as pizza crust. I'd also like regular pizza crust especially for babies but sometimes the commercials pizza crusts. Do you have a lot of sodium in them. So there's really cool recipes using call race for that also use it and mash it up of. I'm doing like baked potatoes. Just add different flavor so again if you're cruising through you have cauliflower rice any recipe you would make adult with cauliflower rice. You can just adopt that for babies. Just making sure doesn't have added sodium or any sugar. Second up. I remember being super surprised when i found out that there are some brands of hash brown potatoes that are in the freezer aisle. That don't have sodium now. Careful 'cause like there's just as many that have tons of sodium. So my general rule of thumb as i mentioned is less than one hundred milligrams of sodium per serving of food that i'm going to serve my baby. Now you feed your baby. Don't come out of the package so it was kind of a moot point but if you're choosing packaged food look for less than one hundred milligrams and also babies don't eat the same portion size that adults do so they're going to be eating significantly in many cases less than that but back to the hash brown potatoes peeling and shredding potatoes and then like pushing all the water out of them. It's takes so much time to me. It's like never work that. I do not like hash browns enough to do all that however i do like that. There are some brands of already shredded. Hash brown potatoes. That don't have salt in them. And the thing that. I use these primarily to make like a crust to line either quiche. Or if you do like muffin. Tins i'll make like the hash brown potatoes mixed with egg and push it down as the crust for making like zucchini. Ed cups for use it for a lot of breakfast foods. There's a million other ways to use hash brown potatoes. Not personally a huge fan of them. But i love that as a convenience food there an option for you if as a safer way to feed babies now you can of course feature babies regular potatoes if you want to. I do just point out that a lotta times especially if you're doing baked potato bake russet potato. It can be very mealy very dry and any dry bread product. Any dry food for that matter can potentially choking hazard so you want to add a lot of butter or a lot of fat lot of liquid a sauces to make any potentially dry potato product. A little bit more moist for your baby to eat so number one. Call our rights number two hash brown potatoes number three. It's kind of a weird. One ezekiel bread. Now i mentioned the brand usually try not to mention branded foods because of course everyone's grocery store looks different. But ezekiel is one of the few national brands in the us. That has a low sodium option now. Sodium breads are hard to come by breads by themselves. Don't love because they tend to be more on the dry side and dry bread products like albro products as just mentioned. Can you token hazar. But if you're gonna be doing better when you're ready to read you might be looking for a low sodium option. First of all you might have never looked at the sodium in the bread aisle. And you're like oh my gosh. Why does every single piece of bread need of two hundred fifty or three hundred milligrams of sodium will is obviously is a preservative. So that's why you're breads can stay on the shelf If you've ever traveled other parts of the world. Do not use as many of or the same preservatives as the united states and your bread will go moldy in a day or two whereas here. It can stay a lot longer. Some of that has to do with higher levels of sodium but sodium is also a leavening agent meaning that it makes bread rise and it also provides moisture so all those things are important for. Bread ezekiel brand. Is one of the national brands. That has a low sodium option. You don't always find the bread in the braille though so for example like if you go to a smaller grocery store they probably have ezekiel bread. But if it's not fresh in the bakery section you can actually find it in the freezer aisle so again check out. That brand ezekiel bread for lower sodium. Bread options you'll taste it and be like this is gross because it's low sodium bread. Do keep in mind. it gets pretty dry. Though because it's not retaining that moisture with assault so astra butter again. Add extra sauce. Do what you need to do. But the low sodium. Bread ezekiel bread. You can find it in your freezer number four frozen fruit. I know you can buy your baby fresh fruit. But i know i live in southern california where we have a good variety of affordable produce available pretty much around not everybody has that option so if there are fruits that you wanna try with your baby and they're out of season or they're too expensive were you can't find them frozen. Fruit is a great option. Now having said that there are a lot of not so great options with regards to frozen fruits. There's a lot of brands that make like smoothie blends so ridiculous they take regular fruit and then they add sugar to it and then put it in a bag and put it in the freezer and people like oh. I love that brand for my smoothies. And like of course you do because it has like a cup of added sugar on it so just make sure that on the label added sugars. the lines zero grams. We want zero grams of added sugar. The american academy of pediatrics reminds us that we should have no added sugars in any foods or drinks for our children up until age two. And even after that you want to minimize it so you can find like mango chunks. Do i don't care what you say how much you love cooking. Nobody really likes peeling and cutting mangoes into pieces. Like that is one of the few convenience foods that i will buy. I personally i a lot of produce at costco. You can always get the mango already cut chop but it seems to be really really hard so if i do the frozen mango chunks provided you're getting the ones that don't have the added sugar when you defrost them. They're actually a lot softer which is therefore safer for babies to eat now. You can do frozen strawberries. They also tend to be beneficial because a lot of the frozen fruits. They're picked at peak ripeness. Meaning that from a taste standpoint. It might be a better experience for you and your baby to be eating those so they may taste better. They may be more affordable if a fruit is frozen and then you're trying to get it fresh out season wouldn't even taste as good plus. It'd be pretty expensive but you can use those fruits when you defrost them just provided that they're nice and soft conservative baby that way you could put them in smoothies if you want to melt them into a compote without any added sugar. There's lots of ways you can use frozen fruit. Don't discount them. Just be aware that there are some frozen food products that have added sugar. Don't choose those ones number five of my favorite foods from the frozen food. Aisle art at amami. Now this is not for earlier. Eaters at a mommy are the little green japanese soybeans. You can buy them either in the pod or the pot. I always get them out of the pod to serve. The baby cooked them in boiling water for a little bit of time. It's a great way to serve your baby soifer food. It's not the way i prefer to do. Soifer i the problem with eta. Mommy is very small right. They'll like little tiny lima beans. So when your baby is just starting solid foods at six or seven months of agent doesn't have their pincer grasp they can't even pick up the eta. Mommy so it's not my favorite way to start with soy but once your baby gets that pincer grasp usually usually by the time they turn nine months then at amami is a good option. If you want more information on how to give your baby a safe start to soy you can go checkout podcast episode number thirty seven. It's called soy how to introduce your baby to this potentially allergenic food and inside of it. I explained why prefer tofu as a way to start soy babies over at amami but once you get jamming on a bunch of new foods definitely go check out at amami as a good option. Some of them do have added salt but most brands from the freezer aisle at a mommy would not have added salt. So you're making a shopping list to recap koffler rice hash brown. Potatoes ezekiel bread fruit. And etta mommy. of course. there's lots of other options in the frozen foods. I'll i love to hear which ones you guys like if you're on instagram. I'm there to at baby led. Weaning team hit me up in the comments. And let me know which frozen foods your buying and trying for your baby. Thank you guys so much for listening to this episode all about some freezer.

"Order to give your baby a safe start to solid foods. There are so many gimmicky products out there. That if you're feeling overwhelmed. I just want to let you know it's okay if you don't have one of these. I hope at this quick list will help. Clear your mind now. I like to start out. Each of these baby led weaning. Training episodes with baby led weaning tip of the day and today's tip is kiss. Keep it simple sweetheart. Don't go cruising the isles target looking for things to buy just because your baby is about to move to a new stage when you start solid foods. I think before we start solid foods. The most important thing that you need is a safe. I chair and when i say safe i chair. I mean one. That has an adjustable foot rest. That your baby's feet can rest flat on. And that's even from his or her first bites because not one of those dangling foot rest you see them on some high chairs where his really only good when the kid is a full blown toddler..
"led " Discussed on Baby-Led Weaning Made Easy
"My general rule of thumb just to give you like the quick and dirty. I love to see less than one hundred milligrams of sodium per serving food that. I'm serving my baby now. That is not published official guidance because there is none of that for babies less than one so we have to kind of us like best practices. Which is yeah you want to minimize sodium. Most of the foods roughing baby are fresh. Wholesome foods that are not pro process. That are not coming from gans so if you occasionally do feed processed food try to keep it on the lower side of sodium less than a hundred milligrams is like a good benchmark also knowing that the nutrition facts panel is going to reflect serving sizes that are appropriate for adults. And i don't care like how into eating baby is they're not gonna eat a half a cup of garbanzo beans so they're actually eating less than the amount of sodium posted in the label but good rule of thumb less than one hundred milligrams per serving now when you go to pick canned goods. This is like the easiest place to get super good at reading labels really fast <unk>. I'm gonna give example of garbanzo beans. I was just working on this. Pumpkin curry led weaning recipe for my pumpkin episode recently. Don't just like told my husband. Because i don't like to go storage more and sometimes i ask instacart key. Please get three cans of no added salt garbanzo beans and three that are regular saul in three that are reduced sodium. Like they don't get it or listen to mesa. my husband also doesn't either but anyway comes back from the store. I'm like just by like three different types of canned garbanzo beans from the same brand as teaching experiment so he brings back s&w brand. This is like not brand bashing by any means certainly not sponsor but like that was the brand. That was at sprouts that day and sprouts sexually a great store to buy canned because they have no added salt versions of almost all canned foods. So s&w beans. I hope he went to sprouts. I don't know where he went. He's really not a lot to go to the grocery store unattended. Most of the time but in this case comes home cans of low sodium and regular garbanzo beans. They cost the same. They look the same. But when you flip the label over and a half a cup. Serving the low sodium garbanzo beans had a hundred and forty milligrams the regular ones had four hundred twenty milligrams. So essentially there were three times as much sodium in the regular girvan beans as compared to the low sodium. Now in the united states. Low-sodium means one forty milligram or less per serving s&w pushing it to the upper limit right. They're gonna call that low sodium and they're going to max it out at one forty but it still three times less than the amount of sodium in the regular bonds beans again. They cost the same. They look the same to your baby. They taste the same. We want to air towards the side of the lower sodium foods and again if you rinsed the low sodium garbanzo beans. You would take that one hundred and forty milligrams down to about ninety two milligrams which falls below the hundred milligrams per serving threshold and again. Nobody's gonna eat half a couple of garbanzo beans as an aside. If you are serving your baby can garbanzo beans. You wanna slip them out of the skin and smash them with your thumb. We smash foods that are about the size of our bonds hoping or a blueberry smashing with your thumb up until the time if your baby is one and even beyond that if you want to be extra cautious so read your labels no added salt is going to be the lowest one low-sodium means one forty milligrams or less a tricky labeling law or rule is about reduced sodium reduce sodium just means twenty five percent less sodium than the regular one and the regular one can be have as much sodium as they want to so good example. This is like when you look at soy sauce. People will be like oh. Give me the green bottle giving the low sodium soy sauce soy sauce as you likely know is just liquid salt reduced sodium in the green bottle. That's not low salt that produced it just means there's twenty five percent less salt in the liquid sodium soy sauce then in the regular one okay so reduced sodium just means twenty five percent less. Read those labels carefully look for less than one hundred milligrams for babies in. You're in good shape. Let's talk about canned fruit. Okay yeah. Fresh fruit is great and frozen for the doesn't have any added. Sugar is a great option too but there are still foods that you might only be able to get for your baby in a conversion and they're totally fine provided we're not concerned about sodium in this case we're concerned about sugar so when you're looking at vegetables you're wanting to reduce the sodium in the conversions when you're looking at fruits you're going to pay attention to the sugar. The added sugar anything packed in light syrup or heavy syrup to stay away from the word syrup syrup just means added sugar and age to under should not have added sugar according to the american academy of pediatrics right.

"Guidance that parents need advice around how to you know, safely they share with their baby if that's what they're going to do telling them to do. It doesn't stop them from doing it needs to be safe and the same happens with introducing solids if you don't give parents would advice or and what they want to do, they'll do it without that advice or they'll hide it from you. So it seems to sort of backwards way of thinking to Thursday. We do have a big emphasis on responsive pleading but the only official evidence is really around spoon-feeding it is kind of weaning and things like that kind of creeping in there's more kind of mention of them. I would say compared to ten years ago in terms of actual guidelines about how to do baby LED weaning then no but same thing that our Official Guidelines are to start giving your baby solid foods around six months and to do a mixture of finger foods and pureed or mashed Foods. So one of the questions we have is you know at what point is Baby Led weaning baby LED weaning. Can you only do baby LED weaning if you never spin feed your baby? What is Baby Led weaning actually about is it actually to do with the spoons and the purees or is it to do with the response of feeding and the baby being in control? Say to me the main bulb it is not necessarily around the spins for the purees. It's about the baby being in charge and the baby being fed responsively. However, they are often fed and also the other kind of stuff around it. So the things like them having finger foods to play with and touch and learn about and it being gradual and things about them sitting around the family meal table and having a bit of what everybody else is eating and joining in that social learning experience to me. It's those things that are really the most important things off. Whether a baby occasionally has a puree or it's been fed because you know, you've just cleaned them all year round year. The grandmother's house has got white carpets and white safer Zack. Want food everywhere, you know all you want to give them some yogurt and you don't want it all over your walls to me. It's it's a bad way of thinking the mindset behind your baby being in charge and trusting your baby and letting them being in control of things and it being a learning social experience rather than necessarily the spoons and the purees but so wonderfully put like as a researcher you have to focus on off grams of the micrograms and the ounces and the portions, but in real life, we all want our babies to learn how to be in control of and to listen to and respond to their own hunger and fullness q's and in reality baby LED weaning wage does allow them to do that. So thank you again for sharing all of the research that you and your PhD students in your group is doing for our audience would like to learn more about your work a me. Where can they go to learn maths? I've actually got a brand new website that has got all of well, it's nearly got all of my research on it. I started adding all of my research papers one at a time and then realized that published over a hundred and this might take some time. So it's a it's a work-in-progress, but there's everything on there. So, it's Professor Amy Brown. Co. Uk nice and simple. All right Professor Amy Brown. Co. Uk, and you guys I will go ahead and link up all of the paper that dr. Brown has published with regards to Baby Led weaning cuz we are huge fans of your work and have like all of them because we're signing them.

"So as with many of the trials that try to look at early infant feeding though that study English in New Zealand didn't have a situation where everybody in the baby LED weaning group did baby LED weaning and everybody in traditional group ended up doing traditional waiting you had crossover. Yep. My question is always. Well what exactly are we measuring there? And it's you know, it's it's a limitation to me well-designed study. But as always people are people so that can affect the results. Just While most are they on on that is actually a recent publication from one of my PhD students are adjourns what she looked at is she weighed and measured a lot of space for her PhD and then she looked at their their weight outcomes at around 12 months and she didn't just look at whether they were spoon-fed or baby LED weaning. She also looked at the interaction with how they were given their milk feeds. So she looked at whether a breastfed or whether they're formula-fed and because in the UK, we don't have that many babies who are exclusively bottle-fed expressed milk. We tend to have two main groups there breastfed directly all their bottle-fed most of the time and what she found them. Is the when babies were baby-led wind how they were milk-fed didn't seem to impact upon their weight. So the babies who were baby LED wind and formula fed were a similar to the babies who are baby LED wind and breastfed. But when babies were spoon-fed if they were also bottle-fed. They were more likely to be a heavier weight than the other three groups and one of the reasons we think this is happening. Is that because when you're spoon-fed and your bottle says you have very little opportunity to be fully in control of how much milk off feature taking in so it all comes back to this idea was responsive feeding again say it's maybe something we want to pick up on on another question, but it's it's just kind of thinking about how baby LED weaning off and really encouraged responsive feeding and put babies in control of their own appetite and that's so important because we're taught especially when you're learning how to breastfeed. Is that obviously beyond the nutrition benefits off. Then etcetera your baby is engaged in responsive feeding and I always think it's so ironic when at six months of age. We just flip a switch with traditional spoon-feeding and throw that right out the window, where now the baby's no longer in control me the parent or caregiver..

"That's a trend it some, you know, woo parenting technique and I always tried to counteract that by pointing out that there is this research coming out a lot of it done by you and your group and a number of Studies have been published in the past that do support and infants ability and desire to safely self feed. So it's curious. Do you have tips for parents in our listeners who are worried that maybe baby LED weaning is just a passing trend of a fad. I mean, I think I'd say two things so that and that's a really common thing that people say to me and I think we just kind of have to go back a little bit in history, you know when we were kind of dog. Losing the baby food industry has evolved alongside us. We didn't have a baby food industry of pureed specialized things until about nineteen Thirty and if you kind of sucked into the history of that I think it was sort of the UK and the US kind of similar points in the 1930s. They developed the ability to be able to can and store food for a longer and they were doing that with vegetables two adults or so. They you know, they were they were can carrots and some kind of bright people had this idea that if you could do that in kind of big jars them I couldn't you do it in smaller jars and have specific foods for babies. I mean, it was a bit more complicated than that, but that's the kind of history of it and it was the idea that from then on you then have this idea of special occasions that you give to babies. And of course, there's a big Market in an industry behind it. And as soon as you start making money out of something it becomes more and more and more if you go back to even ten twenty years. Hold that this concept of specialized baby food was just non-existent. If you kind of look at winning records, it most babies would probably just given Family Foods down there around nine ten months of age. I mean some of it might have been mashed down a bit but this concept of a special pureed food that you ever baby was non-existent until we learn how to make money out of the idea..

"How do you pitch this idea to her? She doesn't have eleven month. Old twins like you do. Yeah this actually is less work. How does that work first of all? It's incredible and I felt very similar with girls. There is no way I'm to spoon feed. Both of you try and fit. In. All the kids keep everybody happy. Run Your Business Shirt. I'm like. There's absolutely no way not. That was a thought as well, but my assistant has been around from the very beginning. She was helping me I. Actually needed her during my maternity. Because are so huge with my twins, and I, just couldn't work as as long as I thought I could, so she's been around from the beginning. And she seen the process, so I feel really comfortable with talking to her more about it in quote, unquote training her just getting her more comfortable, actively doing it. I'm very very hands on in my business, so I believe for at least the first month or so I will be the one to do the process you WanNa call it really heating. Serving you know. Working with the child, but she's absolutely seen it. She seen it with my girl. She finds it amazing like. Are they jumping on me right now? I'm getting other snacking on seaweeds just having been around it I think she seen it. She believes it and she understands she sees what I do and will understand. It can help out in process pretty well and I think that's so key to have an advocate on board with you. It's sometimes can feel isolating if you're the only person that thinks gosh the only one who wants to do. Baby led weaning I'm trying to learn about.

"A baby can recover from gag on their own. We don't intervene during the gag if we intervene during a gag in lunch at the baby or startled the baby place our hands on the baby it can cause the baby to inhale that food there gagging on and a harmless gag becomes a very harmful choke right gagging his good. It's part of learning how to eat but choking is certainly harmful hands down. Anybody who is helping you feed your baby should have. Cpr skills so that they know what to do in the event that your baby jokes. I'M GONNA linked to an online CPR. Course that I myself take routinely to keep my CPR skills up to par. Because a few months ago I can't remember what I had for breakfast today. Let alone like the exact specifics of how to administer bla- back blows but what you really want is at anyone who is feeding her baby if they do choke you want that person to be able to help intervene and administer. Cpr and one of the good things about taking an online classes yes. It doesn't replace the experience of doing CPR in person however multiple people including the caregivers your partner grandma they can take the same course and get the same skill set from you purchasing one CPR course so again linked to that online CPR. Course that I recommend in the show notes if you go to L. W. podcasts dot com slash eighteen. This is the daycare episode. I'll put that in there so address objections. Oftentimes it's about choking sometimes the after saying I'm scared the baby's GonNa Choke okay their concern as well. I don't know what foods to make the baby like opening up pouch and squeezing it into a baby's not that's kind of a no brainer spooning food out of baby food jar and pushing it into babies on spoon. That's kind of a no brainer. If people have only ever associated baby feeding those two practices. They're just concerned that they don't know what foods to feed. And the way you fix that is by you. Prepare the food so in some degrees a little more work involved here okay. You have to actually make the food's put them in the container send it with the matter the ball and the bib make the eating sit down explain it to them but sometimes you do it once and then your baby is set now occasionally you will encounter a situation where the caregivers just won't okay and you can't make them do something they don't want to or don't feel safe doing. And if that's the instance I want you to know that it's perfectly fine if you can only do solid foods with your baby. Once a day at the beginning six or seven months of age maybe even before work or more likely after you pick the baby up from from daycare Relegating it to just the weekends is hard because then that implies at five days in the middle of the week the baby's not eating and that's not okay but you can if the daycare provider only feels comfortable doing pure as teach them how you do the preloaded spoon technique. And if you need advice on how to do that go back to episode number five. It's called how to do pure as for a few days when starting solid foods and inside of that episode. I explained to you exactly how you preloaded spoon. Technique may because I want to leave you guys with a tip. Which is it's not confusing. If you're switching between Peres and soft solid strips of food. Okay it that provided that. Let me start over. It's not confusing. If your baby's switching between periods and soft solid strips of food only if the baby is the one being allowed to feed himself what is confusing if at home babies allowed to eat sausage trips of food that he feeds himself and at daycare somebody else shoves and arbitrary amount of food in his mouth until feeding time is over and that's period. That's confusing so we want to aim for the consistency and messaging where the baby regulates their own intake. Be It at home. When you're doing soft solid strips foods. Traditional baby led weaning foods or at daycare. You're doing that. Pre loaded spoon. Approach just teach the daycare providers. This is how my baby eats. I don't want anyone pudding the spoon my baby's mouth they'll be blown away. Babies can do so much more than we give them credit for. But sometimes you have to show them. You have to call the meeting practice. What you preach seeing is believing and you do have to prepare the food and no. That's a little bit hard. You may require you streamlining meal production. A lot of families will do meal. Prep on Sunday. You know making five different foods. I'm not saying you don't WanNa send the same thing every single day or the baby will become conditioned to expect that but it's fine to offer repeat foods throughout the week or the same food twice in a day as long as you're ensuring that your baby is having a variety of foods over all. Okay then I want to leave you with the tip to take ownership of your knowledge as I said. You're the one who knows your baby best. I know a lot of you are arming yourself. With knowledge about baby led weaning. Before you start solids when you start. At six months of age plus sweater vevey show those other sides of readiness to feed a few days into ten days. Up after three days. You're like oh I got this. Do a full ten days with two different means in two different allergenic foods. They'll be some gagging. There might be vomiting. You'll see some changes in the stool like none of this is surprising to you. So that when the provider gives you feedback oh so and so's constipated if say yes. That's a natural side effect of learning how to eat. Here's a homemade prune period that I have made you can preloaded on the spoon and offer it to the baby and allow the baby to sell feet. Like you know a lot about this stuff already by educating yourself. Take ownership of your knowledge so one of the sample languages that I love to use this credit to my friend and colleague Don Winkelmann. She's a speech. Language pathologist. Who Specializes in baby led weaning and pediatric swallowing and we do some digital courses and work together and one of our programs has a sample scripts guide so how to talk to your tribe about baby led weaning in your tribe is basically anyone. Who's helping you with your baby right? So one of Don's language prompts that she used this great. How do you talk to a parent or friend? Who MAY BE IN DISBELIEF? That baby can eat and so they sometimes will say things that may come across as hurtful but they don't intend it so a friend might say to you. I can't believe you give your baby such big pieces of food right. They've only ever seen poucher baby food. They don't realize babies can eat real food. I always say what people did before the advent of commercial baby food in the earlier part of the twentieth century their babies eight soft versions of the foods. The rest of the family was eating. But Don's much more tactful than me. her response is always to encourage parents and carry to say to the caregivers or the friend or the grandma who is it. Who SAYS I can't believe your baby eats such big pieces of food. You can say you know after doing my research and taking classes by feeding experts. I've learned how to successfully and safely prepare food to improve developmental milestones to decrease choking risks to determine when my baby is full and down the road I'm going to be decreasing picky eating tendencies as well again. You don't have to sound snotty about it. I sometimes do. I think it my responses but practice that positive language. Don's very good at practicing a positive language. We do. Do some joint workshops together. We do a lot of work on instagram together. She's the feeding expert for easy peasy Company that makes the Silicone Suction Matt's involves A link to those in the show notes and also shared Don's website and instagram page with you guys in the show notes on Instagram. She's atmos- dawn SLPP. And I know we're in a podcast environment. You guys are listening to this information but I do think instagram can be so powerful and I use it as my primary platform for teaching about baby led weaning because seeing is believing just seeing other babies eating age appropriate versions of foods that not everyone gets to see every day it can really help inspire confidence in your babies ability to do the same thing when the time is right so. I hope you've found that helpful on how you can get caregivers. Onboard with baby led weaning.

"So since I get asked probably every day. What exactly is baby led weaning. Because it's kind of a weird term if you're not familiar with the mechanics of weaning and we'll get into that in the podcast. But I like to summarize baby led weaning by saying it is a practical safe hands on approach to starting solid foods baby led weaning is an alternative to traditional spoon. Feeding now. Spoons are not outlawed. On this podcast. I will teach you how you can incorporate spoon feeding for naturally pureed foods. But the kicker is it's all about letting the baby drive the spoon. I'll show you the preloaded spoon technique. You don't have to do the work baby does it. Baby led weaning. Helps you raise an independent eater? Baby led weaning helps you prevent picky eating and I think most importantly above all baby led weaning allows your baby to develop a healthy relationship with food. Because I don't know exactly where you're at in your parenting journey right now but many of us are working to improve our own relationships with food at the same time that we're trying to teach our children how to have a healthy relationship with food. So maybe we ourselves are a picky eater or maybe. I don't have the best relationship with food or maybe my partner is an on board with teaching the baby how to sell feet one of the things that a colleague of Mine Dr Juliane Organ says. She's a pediatrician. And I love this line. She says you are writing your family's food story your babies a blank slate. The story hasn't started yet. Your family story does not have to end up with you. Having a picky eater who will only eat like dinosaurs shape. Chicken Nuggets Right. You are writing your family's food story and I think a great place to start is with baby led weaning this approach. That helps your baby get a safe. Start TO SOLID. Foods and build a huge repertoire of foods and flavours tastes and textures. That will be the foundation of his or her future healthy relationship with food. I am so excited to share all of these safe eating tips and resources as well as the research and data that supports this alternative to traditional spoon. Feeding with all of YOU GUYS. Here on this podcast. Now if you're just getting started doing solid foods with your baby I want to teach you the secret to success for baby led weaning. You'RE GONNA sit down with your baby at those first few feedings and for a lot of you. Nothing is going to happen. Your baby won't do much. They might touch the food that you put out there. They might sniff the food. They'll probably smash some of it in their hair. If your baby is like one of my quadruplets Henry he'll actually just put his head down on the table and not participate in eating for the first six weeks of baby led weaning and without one. I remember thinking if this were my only baby. I would be so worried that I'm doing something wrong. Because you'll see other babies eating more than your baby or eating faster than your baby or in different foods than your baby and you'll want to compare your baby to those babies but don't do it compare and despair right guys..

They're trying to get the baby to eat that period food. But YOU GUYS.
