Any recommendations for healthy solids pouches I can send to daycare for my 7 months old? Steaming fruits in the morning is taking too much time and I am also not able to mix up ingredients. Also, how do I make sure she is getting a well rounded meal through pouches. Baby is doing 3 meals a day

I didn’t use pouches much but used to steam and purée large batches of fruit, vegetables on the weekend and freeze in small serving size containers or into ice cubes. I’d pull out what I needed for the next day and let it thaw in the fridge overnight.

Do you need to use pouches specifically rather than jars, cups, bowls, etc.? We used all manner of store-bought baby food, and we always sent it in multiple cups so there was variety in case my son didn’t like something. Maybe half a jar of mixed veggies with a meat, quarter jar of two different single veggies, quarter jar of two different fruits or fruit combos, so a total of five different cups of things. Then we would save the jars in the fridge (or we’d just portion out the whole jar into however many servings we used).

Serenity has pouches with meat and less sugar than other brands. My baby didn’t really like the flavors other than beef though.

Try yumi, they are meal subscription plan for babies just starting on solid. I like it. Well balanced ingredients with minimal sugar.

Pouches are far less nutrient dense than doing actual food. Would you be able to batch steam on designated meal prep days or weekends? By 7 months they should be able to move past purées as well. I’d consider sending them in with ingredients or portions of your own meal - eg cooked pasta (with no added salt sauce or no salt at all), pieces of roasted or stir fried meat, baked or steamed apple, baked sweet potato, steamed broccoli, etc. Most of this I did day before or a few days before to save time on the day of.

Can you provide some support on pouches being less nutrient dense than actual food?

Will daycare feed finger food or does it have to be puree? If they’ll feed finger food, can they heat up food or will it be served at whatever temperature it’s kept in a storage container? Lots of suggestions for bulk prep based on those answers!

My almost 4 MO EBF baby is spitting up all of a sudden after every feed. He used to have occasional spit ups ( once per week ) but suddenly it’s almost an ounce after every feed and he looks so uncomfortable before spitting up . He doesn’t roll over either ways and our pediatric nurse is like it’s probably GERD don’t mind. Waiting to talk to our usual doctor next week. Anyone else face this ?

So I’m watching the Wayen’s brothers and haven’t watched this since I was a kid. Obviously, as a child you don’t fully pick up on the heavy themes interwoven to the show’s slapstick or exaggerated comedic nature. Black exploitation, integrity and whatnot. But I’m happy to say, although it’s hard for younger ppl to fully understand. It sits in the subconscious. And in ways, sometimes small, sometimes big.. it influences for the better. Content makers. Be aware of what your putting into the world.

Hey 👋🏻 So, to all of the female fish who have endured pregnancy… I’m 10 days late, not using any protection, but keep getting that familiar feeling that my period is about to start. Kind of crampy, irritable, bloated… But it still hasn’t started! I’m very rarely this late. Usually only by a day or 2. I definitely *feel* like I could start, but I know that pregnancy & period symptoms are sometimes indistinguishable… My dumb question is: could I be pregnant if I feel like I’m about to start??
