Some purees can be added to your baby’s diet as early as six months if your baby is ready for them. At one year of age, solid food should be replacing most of the milk in their diet. Ask your pediatrician if you are not sure which foods are best for your baby.
Parents should start reading to their children as soon as they are born. Holding your baby and reading helps a child learn language and assists with the parent/child bonding experience. The habit of reading supports building a routine before bedtime; when bedtime is fun, your child may have less anxiety when it comes to bedtime.
