Evie is now 3 months and 1 week old… WHAT!? I know! I can’t even believe she’s already that old! It is killing me. I’m so sad to see her grow up in what feels like a whirlwind but I also absolutely love seeing her grow and start to get a cute little personality! I feel so conflicted. But I have a feeling that I will feel conflicted about her growing up for the rest of my life!
Lately I have been thinking about how and when to start feeding her solids and with the help of Evie’s doctor and the internet… :), I found some awesome products that are going to make the transition from just feeding her milk to feeding her milk AND solids easy peasy!
I went to Target in search of some nutritional snacks that will not only be easy on the go snacks but will also be easy for her pick up and grab on her own when it’s time for her to start eating solids! Which led me to find two of my three MUST HAVE baby feeding items in the baby aisle!
These snacks are on my must haves list because they are doctor approved, I can start letting her eat them when she turns 6 months, and they are delicious (yes, I tried them and I want to eat them as an everyday snack for myself). These delicious snacks are baked with navy beans, have 2 grams of protein, and 1 gram of fiber per serving. I love that when Evie eats them I know she is getting a nutritional snack with protein and fiber to help her little body grow healthy and strong!
The best part is that you can get Gerber® Lil’ BeaniesTM on sale right now at Target through the iBotta offer! Click here to snag the deal and make your little one SO happy when you bring home a yummy snack that they will never know is healthy too!
Yes you read that right…this amazing gadget not only will steam bottles but it will also steam your veggies and fruits to make making your own baby food at home a breeze! I love that I can make Evie’s food which will save my family money and I can easier control that every single thing that goes into her cute little body is healthy and good for her!
And the bottle steamer part of it is absolutely amazing….especially at 3 a.m :). I wanted to breastfeed Evie but had a really hard time getting her to latch so I ended up mostly pumping and feeding her with a bottle! I was so happy to have this steamer because it steams the bottles quick and it will fit any size bottle.
These are life changing! Because I have mostly pumped and fed Evie with a bottle, I started storing my milk in these storage packs and they have made my life so much easier! You can use their adapters that hook into pretty much any pump you can buy and attach the storage packs right into your pump. This is nice because then you don’t have to transfer your milk from the pumping bottle to storage bags (which cause bubbles in the milk). Then you can use the Kiinde bottles to twist the storage packs right in and then feed your baby straight from the bottle without another transfer to get more bubbles in the milk!
Are you ready for the best part about the Kiinde storage packs? It doubles as a baby food pouches so you can make your baby food with the Cuisinart Steamer and then put the food into your Kiinde storage packs so your baby can eat their food right out of the pouch! LIFE CHANGING!
