Starting Solids and Cups Class
$45.00 per family
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?
Starting Solids & Cups is a 1.5 hour course, taught by Cara Fox, M.S CCC-SLP, CLC – a pediatric Speech-Language Pathologist and feeding specialist. This course will help educate families on typical feeding development, solid food introduction, and cup introduction. Families will learn tips to help make this transition smoother, how to promote optimal oral development, and strategies to help problem solve difficult feeding situations.
In addition, Cara will also cover feeding schedules, ideal serving size by age group, allergy precautions, seating suggestions, and signs that your child may benefit from a feeding evaluation.
This course is taught live and will be interactive – we encourage discussion and questions throughout!
