Knowing how much to feed our babies and toddlers can be quite tricky. Are we feeding them enough or too much? Making sure we get the balance right is important so they are well fed and healthy. I know in the past I have worried that Sienna isn’t eating enough but we were on the right track. It is crazy to see how little they actually need to eat, especially when it comes to snacks.
I suppose all parents feel like this at some point. The Infant & Toddler Forum have put together a new resource to help us find tips and advice when it comes to parenting and feeding our babies. It really isn’t an easy job sometimes and we can all benefit from some help and support at times. It is especially important to know we are getting the right information at what is possibly one of the most overwhelming times of our lives.
Having worked with the Infant & Toddler forum previously, I have learnt a lot about how much my girls need to be eating and drinking. But it makes me sad to hear that new parents feel under pressure to ‘get it right’ when it comes to their babies. That is why it is so important to have resources to help parents so they don’t have to worry about if they are doing things wrong. Did you know that 70% of parents questioned said they felt under more pressure than they thought they would be with 60% feeling more anxious, guilty and judged than they thought they would be?
The 10 steps to Feeding Babies (0-12 months) is a great resource for parents to help ease worries and gives practical advice for any parents who are concerned. With so many opinions and pieces of advice being offered it is good to be able to get the answers you need. We all worry about our babies and want to do what is best for them and this resource gives you the knowledge to be confident you are doing just that.
One important thing to remember is that babies do cry for reasons other than that they are hungry. But if you are worried that your baby isn’t feeding enough or needs more than you can give, then it doesn’t hurt to have extra resources like you can find on the Infant & Toddler Forum to help put your mind at ease.
Are you worrying that your baby isn’t feeding very well? What do you think of the Infant & Toddler Forum’s new resource?
