ben’s favorite breakfast: 11 months old

SHARE THIS

 

Breakfast for 11 month old
Our food journey with Ben has been a bit different than it was with Blaire. It’s crazy how quickly they can change recommendations for babies. With Blaire, it was recommended to start solids around 4 months old. This time around, only three years later, the AAP recommends waiting until 6 months to start your baby on solids. 

Honestly, waiting until 6 months to start solids was a relief to me. Bottle feeding (or breast feeding!) is just so much more convenient and less messy. So it was nice to have a few more months of just feeding my baby before he was sitting up in his high chair demanding more food! haha

Currently, Ben is a great eater. He loves most things and loves to feed himself bite-sized pieces of the food we’re eating. But he does still LOVE eating from a spoon. For breakfast, he loves these yogurt bites, bananas, blueberries, strawberries, raspberries and Oatmeal Single Grain Cereal from Gerber®. You can start babies on plain oatmeal right at 6 months old. And now, at 11 months old, Ben he loves it when we feed it to him with his favorite fruits! I love to start my day with oatmeal, so I feel ya, buddy.

    • Well we don’t have a Nordstrom near us, but we do have an Aldi. Most of their summer items are on clearance and we scored this sweet pool for $7. Winner, winner. 🦄☀️ #blaireandben

    • This summer hasn’t really felt like summer yet. 🤨 So when we have an 85° day we make the most out of it with a trip to the pool! How’d you spend your Sunday Funday? #blaireandben
    • another day, another doctors appointment for someone in our crew. today it’s Ben. he was up overnight saying his ear hurt — a double ear infection for him. luckily the kid loves taking medicine and hasn’t let his ears get him down! as long as he’s up moving around they’re fine, but the second he lays down... 😭😭😭. hoping our poor buddy is feeling better tomorrow. do you feel like you need a frequent flier card for your pediatrician? just me? okay. #blaireandben #itsfinewerefine

    • It is definitely bittersweet to leave the house where we brought both of these babies home. But we are excited for our next chapter as a family of five! #rainbowbaby #blaireandben

    • Last night was our first night in the new house. 👏🏻 We still have lots of stuff to bring from the old house and then lots of cleaning over there before the final walk through and closing next Monday. Then we can focus on getting this house unpacked and organized. But first, I would like a nap. 😴 #blaireandben #happilytristahome

    • This sums up our Sunday. After driving around like crazy people to go to three parties yesterday, today was lazy and included movies, popcorn, long naps, quick trick or treat at the mall and then spaghetti pizza. And I might be eating my kids candy on the couch right now. 😍 How was your weekend? #blaireandben
    • Childhood... drinking a frosty in your teepee. what. a. life. We had a slow weekend. Literally vegged out at home 95% of the time and it was marvelous.  #blaireandben
