If you google introducing solids you might come across baby led weaning (BLW). BLW is an approach that skips purees and spoon feeding altogether and encourages baby to eat whole pieces of food starting at 6 months.
As the Technological Age has developed and taken over in North America, we have become music ‘consumers’ rather than music ‘makers’. We have decided that music is reserved for the ‘talented’ ones. You are only allowed to sing if you are GOOD at it. This concept is so unfortunate for our culture. Making music together has so many benefits for us, both cognitively and emotionally.
When I first did my training for Music Together, my daughter was 3 months old and I thought I had tons of time to get her into a music class. And I did – BUT I didn’t realize how much music had already been a part of her life. Actually, for EVERY baby music has been a part of their little lives without you even knowing it.
Readiness for solid foods is very much a developmental milestone, like taking, crawling and walking. Each baby will be ready at slightly different times, based more on their ability to eat food and to tolerate it. One thing we can rely on, is that your baby knows when she is ready!
