About the Class:
Starting Solids & Cups is taught by Cara Fox, M.S. CCC-SLP, CLC – an experienced pediatric Speech-Language Pathologist and feeding specialist.
Transitioning from breast or bottle feeds to solid foods is a milestone that can be both exciting and stressful for parents and caregivers. When should you start to offer solid foods? What foods should you offer first? How can you help your baby learn to chew? What cups are best for your baby and when should you introduce one?
This course will teach parents the typical feeding development timeline by age, how to transition from milk to solid foods, and how/when to introduce cups. Families will learn tips to help make these transitions smoother, how to promote optimal oral development, and strategies to problem solve difficult feeding situations.
This course is taught live and will be interactive – we encourage discussion and questions throughout!
