Hi, I'm Amanda!
I wear many hats:
Wife, nurse practitioner, coffee guzzler, dry shampoo enthusiast...
But most importantly, I'm a mama, just like you!
I'VE BEEN WHERE YOU ARE
After my twins were born 2 years ago, my world was turned upside down.
I used to be really good at a lot of things, but then all of a sudden I had no idea what I was doing.
I would figure something out, then sure enough it would be time to learn something new.
When it was time to start solid foods, I knew that I wanted to give my girls the healthiest start possible. I wanted them to experience different tastes and textures, while also making sure their food was nutrient dense and promoted their development.
I SPENT HOURS...
The truth is, I spent hours reading and researching and pinning in order to come up with a plan for feeding my babies.
I had so many questions.
DO I START WITH CEREAL OR VEGGIES?
PUREES OR BABY-LED WEANING?
SHOULD MY BABY BE PLANT-BASED?
HOW DO I KNOW WHEN SHE’S READY TO START SOLIDS?
HOW MUCH FOOD DO I GIVE MY BABY AND HOW OFTEN DO I GIVE IT?
Do you feel my pain? Do you want to feed your baby healthy food but don't know where to start?
As a new mom, you want to have control over what your baby eats and ensure they are healthy and thriving. But you likely have many questions about how/when/why/how much, etc.!
If you are overwhelmed and want one place to answer your questions and plan your baby's first several months of solid foods, you're in the right place.
