Hands Down The Best Way to Introduce Baby to Solids!

Introducing Baby to Solids

I’m a firm believer in attachment parenting and parents being so in tune with their children that they have a sense of what’s going on with them (the children) at any given moment, and are able to make decisions specifically for their children and their children’s needs.

That’s one of the main reasons I really love this approach to introducing baby to solids for the first time.

It really eliminates the guesswork of whether your child is allergic to a particular food, or if their body is just not ready to process it yet.

In the video below I explain this approach in detail, and I’ve provided the handout I was referring to (in the video) right here in this post.

How to Introduce Baby to Solids for the First Time

When it comes to babies and pregnancy and birth and mothering there’s soooo much information out there.

It can definitely be a challenge weeding through all the bits and pieces of information, but at the end of the day, you know your child best.

Here’s the handout I promised: (I haven’t yet figured out how to make it available as a pdf, so just print it from here for now).

food introduction

Please, please, please watch the video first before using this method so you understand exactly how to introduce the foods.

It’s more than just introducing specific foods.  There’s a science to it.

If this approach works for your lifestyle, I highly recommend it.  If it doesn’t, share in the comments below what you’ve found works best for you.

Got questions? I probably have answers 🙂

How to Make Sense of This Blog: Because I’m Complex!

I started this blog in January 2015 while I was on bed rest and very pregnant with my sun (spelling intentional) Awesome Amari…my rainbow baby!

It was an interesting (to say the least) time in my life for sooo many reasons.  So much had changed.  So much was changing.  And, there was so much more I wanted to change.

So…

I started this blog with the intention of it being an outlet-a place where I could empty my thoughts, and ultimately heal myself particularly from the illness of giving a fuck about others’ opinions about me.

It’s been through some changes (just like I have), but has since evolved into being a blog FOR YOU, but all about ME –Sunshine Cummings, The Real Bossmom. 

You’ll definitely get the best of both worlds, because not only will you get to be all up in my business, but unlike most personal blogs where you think to yourself (about the blogger) “Annnd, you are who again?,” and could give 2 shits about their family vacation to Disney World (that was a mouthful, but you get what I’m saying)…

…you’ll actually learn some shit, be entertained, and if you choose to apply what you learn…Change Your Life.

Follow along…if you can keep up!

  • Healer-This is my gift!  It’s what I do.  It’s why I chose to come to Earth and be born.For many years I thought I wanted to be a medical doctor, or naturopath, or herbalist, etc. I spent a shitload of time and money studying and learning about chakras, herbs, crystals, midwifery/natural birth, homeopathy, yoga, reflexology, meditation, aromatherapy…you name it!I eventually had to take several seats, step back, and be honest with myself about the fact that I didn’t come here to be a damn compulsive student, and that my gift of healing is unconventional…like me.Posts in this category are all about my journey as a healer, as well as info about healing in several “alternative” modalities.

New Mom Tips: Epic Advice on Being More Productive

Being More Productive as a New Mom

Being a new mom is no joke, and definitely comes with its challenges, but it doesn’t mean you can’t be productive, and get things done.

Once I got over “new mom exhaustion” I had more energy to complete my daily tasks, but I found that things still weren’t getting done.

I needed to do something different, so I did.

What I’m gonna share with you in this video is what I did to pretty much double what I’m now able to get done in a day.

What’s in My Diaper Bag and How to Effectively Pack a Diaper Bag for Everyday Errands

Diaper Bag Packing

I remember when I was pregnant and shopping around for the BEST diaper bag, if such a thing exists.

It was kind of challenging, because my brain needed to know exactly what I would be packing in the diaper bag, so that I could actually get one that would be useful now and later.

I did a lot of reading in the pregnant mom forums to see what other moms packed in their diaper bags, and let me tell you, they’re doing the most.

I couldn’t imagine packing all that stuff in my diaper bag, and lugging it around every time I needed to go somewhere, only to have it sit there collecting dust.

Ain’t nobody got time for that!

Especially not a Boss Mom.

Now that being a Boss Mom with a new baby is no longer theory, I’ve found a fool-proof system of packing my diaper bag that is super organized and simple.

It might become your favorite too!
