Starting Solids
with Katie Louderback

Nutritional Consultant Katie Louderback will provide a framework for making decisions around when to start solids and what types of foods to offer your baby.

When and what we feed our babies can vary greatly depending on many factors. It also sets the stage for our family’s culture of eating. Topics of discussion will also include nutrient dense food options, approaches to feeding including baby-led weaning, common allergens, and how to continue with breast milk and/or formula. There will be space for specific questions and discussion of what worked/didn’t with previous babies.
