You finally have breast/bottle feedings figured out, but your baby is 4-6 months old and your pediatrician tells you it’s time to start introducing complementary feedings. Knowing what to offer and how to do it can be challenging. This class is intended to help parents with babies close to starting solid feedings (4-6 months old). The objective of this class is to help parents understand the importance of first foods and spoon feedings, what foods to offer, when to offer different foods, and techniques to promote successful feeders.
