  2. Hello Helene - I have been following and finding much inspiration from your blog for some time now. I have a 13 month old son and have feeding him a wide variety of foods since he was about 5 months. However, he's getting a little pickier and less accepting of his food at mealtime and I was wondering - did you go through this with Pablo? If you have any practical advice, I'd love to hear it. Does Pablo ever refuse foods, and if so, what do you do? Also - do you give Pablo any drinks besides water? Milk? Thank you for writing such a beautiful blog - you've been a huge help!

    1. Hi Lisa, thanks so much for following the blog and for the kind words, so glad the blog has been helpful! As far as drinks, Pablo (22 mo) still drinks about 12-16 oz a milk a day, 3 times a day but not at meal times, usually at least 1 hour from the meals. Other than that, just water. The only little bit of juice he gets is fresh squeezed OJ or grapefruit juice with breakfast (a few sips, maybe 1-2 oz max). Re: the refusing foods, you may want to check out this post with some of my strategies, see if it helps: http://frenchfoodiebaby.blogspot.com/2012/12/salmon-wrapped-leeks-au-gratin-and-7.html. I would first and foremost remember that children do not starve themselves, so if he's hungry, he will eventually eat. Infants and toddlers know how to listen to their bodies, so my job is to offer the right foods in the right quantities, and he decides how much to eat. However, I wouldn't give in to more snacks if he doesn't eat at mealtimes, that's a vicious circle (What's his snacking like at the moment?). I guess my main tip would be to stay cool, nonchalant about it, try to not let it stress you out or go into power struggles, keep offering and engaging with the meal, and remember this is just a phase... Hope that helps a little, feel free to contact me if you have other questions!

  3. I have just stumbled across your blog in my efforts to find a good routine and meal plans for my 8mo. I started feeding her later than the recommended guideline here in Belgium as in the UK (where I am from) they advise 6 months rather than 4. I am looking forward to making some of your recipes and adding them to my favourites :) I wil definitely be sharing with other mummy friends :) Thanks for taking the time to reply to your readers and thanks for sharing your little family with us :)

    I've been enjoying everything you post here but only commented now. Thank you for all the ideas and recipes you've shared here. It made my life as a new mom much easier. Your blog also made me more adventurous in what I give my almost 9 month old son. All the best!
