    Picky Eating and Toddler Eating Behaviors with Jessica Irwin, OTR/L

    Picky Eating and Toddler Eating Behaviors with Jessica Irwin, OTR/L

    One of the big goals of introducing food before one is exposing your baby to a variety of textures and flavors. The hard part is figuring out HOW to add in new textures and flavors. I created a free guide with 10 ways to add flavor and texture to your baby’s food that you can easily try today. Go to babyfeedingcoach.com/flavor or visit the show notes to get your free guide. 
    Have you heard horror stories about picky toddlers who survive on berries and air? Do you ever see toddlers eating any food that is put in front of them?
    Join me this week as I welcome Jessica Iriwin from Rooted in Routine. Jessica is a pediatric occupational therapist who helps families thrive by developing effective routines. 
    We dive into typical toddler eating patterns, realistic expectations when feeding toddlers, and tips to decrease the risk of picky eating in toddlers.
    We also answer my burning question, “Can you do everything right to “prevent” picky eating but still have a picky toddler?”

    Is Combining Breastmilk and Formula Right for Your Family?

    Is Combining Breastmilk and Formula Right for Your Family?

    Combining breastmilk and formula AKA mixed feeding AKA combo-feeding is a very common way to feed a baby, yet it not often talked about as a way to feed babies.
    When I needed to add formula into my breastfeeding routine, I felt completely alone. There were many breastfeeding instagram accounts and one formula-only instagram account. I wanted to learn as much as I could about combining both and teach parents so they felt less alone if their baby needed or they desired to use formula.
    In this episode,
    I teach about what combo-feeding is,I speak about the pros and cons of combo-feeding andI talk about how combo-feeding played a part in both of my baby’s lifeCombo-feeding, when done correctly, can help prolong a breastfeeding journey and may help decrease anxiety. It may require some guidance. If you’re looking for help on your combo-feeding journey, check out:

Such a help for a new mom

Erin’s knowledge about feeding a newborn was immensely helpful to me when I was having difficulties in the first few days of my son’s life. She helped me navigate combo feeding and how to choose a formula I was comfortable with. So grateful for her and this podcast is amazing! Take a listen—you won’t regret the time spent.

Realistic and supportive

I love following Erin. She gives realistic and non-judgmental feeding advice. I wish I would have found her when I had my first baby. Seeing someone support combo feeding on social media was so refreshing and exactly what I needed to help calm my feeding anxiety when my twins were born. I combo fed my twins for a year and I am so proud of myself!

Great for keeping new moms feeling calm and confident

Erin does a great job at exploring all options for feeding your child without declaring one as the best. Listening to just the first few episodes made me feel so much calmer and more confident about feeding my 8-month-old daughter.
