"If you think breastfeeding is tough - wait till she starts eating solids."
I was told this by the mom of a toddler when I was the mom of a newborn.
Over the years I discovered that most moms were terrified of meal times.
Because they needed to feed babies who just would NOT eat.
And it struck me as terribly sad - that food - the element that brings people together - was creating a rift in the mother baby relationship.
Especially because food ensures survival - and since babies are completely focused on survival - they should actually love eating.
In this article for Morisons Baby Dreams I write how to make babies love eating and how to manage fussy eating.
