Struggling with not knowing what to do when transitioning to solids? Adding foods into your baby’s diet adds many variables: the tongue movement is different when chewing than when sucking on the breast and bottle, the gag reflex needs to be developed and pushed back, and pincer fingers need to practice dexterity and fine motor skills, too. Sensory play is also involved. It’s a new role for mothers who often start to feel a lot of pressure and responsibility to create a healthy, and calm environment, prevent food anxiety, and start your child off eating with healthy food habits. It can be overwhelming when transitioning to solids, especially if you desire your child to eat well and be healthy, without compromising your food values, your budget, and your time.
