The laundry is piling up at home. I have a baby who’s really messy when she eats. Although, come to think of it, whose baby isn’t messy when they are just starting to learn how to eat. I’m not worried about the mess, but I’m more worried about my baby’s food intake. Zeeka is gaining weight, with her still nursing with me and with the solid food that she has been taking, but I’m still worried that she might not be getting the right or enough nutrients. Although she eats well, I don’t know if she’s taking enough.
That is the reason why i’m so excited to attend these two workshops. One is entitled “Nutrition Know How: Nutrition education for women (pregnant and lactating) and babies” from Project Mom and Juju Eats. The other one is entitled Baby Nutrition and Dental Care from Manila Workshops, Medela Moms, Inc.

Proper nutrition is vital in the early years of your child. In his or her first year, your baby grows and develops at a rapid rate. As a parent, you need to make sure that your child receives sufficient nutrients in order to support this growth and development. At the same time, as your baby’s first teeth begin to show and he or she starts to eat solid food, you also need to make sure that those precious teeth and gums are well cared for.
