Giving Baby the Spoon

Last week, Lucy began showing more interest in feeding herself with a spoon instead of being spoon-fed or using her fingers.  I’m sure this will be a good thing one of these days, but for now it’s quite an adventure…for both of us!  Here she is eating her favorite yogurt – Simply Plain Yobaby – on her own for the first time.

Note: The best yogurt for babies is plain whole milk yogurt.  And I highly recommend buying organic yogurt – it’s very worth the slightly higher cost!

    Your site is so incredibly helpful, not only for questions that I have regarding healthy “adult” eating, but also for addressing my “baby” feeding questions.

    I am currently giving my daughter “YoBaby Simply Plain” and I noticed that there is 6g of sugar on the nutrition label. To validate I was making a good food choice, I went to your site and saw that you too gave your baby “YoBaby Simply Plain”. If it is good enough for your little one, then it is good enough for mine.

    Thank you so much for providing us, your readers, with reliable information, recommendations and meal ideas.

    Keep up the good work!

    Thank you, Renee! Yes the “sugar” in YoBaby Simply Plain is just naturally occurring lactose. Nothing to worry about, and it’s a great choice for babies! xoxo

    My son is about to turn 8 months old, for couple of months now he’s shown a HUGE interest in what we eat. Since I’m a first time mother I have been real careful about what I feed him. He doesn’t like plain yogurt, so I was wondering is it would be ok to boil some frozen organic blueberries with frozen organic bananas and adding it to the yogurt. I love and use a lot of maple syrup, we make our own, but I know he is not suppose to have any until he is one.
    Thanks in advance. Sofia

    Absolutely! Adding pureed fruit to plain yogurt is a great way to make it a little more palatable for babies who don’t care for the tangy taste of plain. I bet he’ll like it!
