How We Transitioned Our Baby to Solid Foods

I’m so excited to partner up with Gerber on this post to share just how much we love Gerber’s 3rd Foods® Lil Bits™. Gerber Lil’ Bits recipes are made with perfectly sized soft bit of fruits or veggies that help your baby learn to chew. Chewing is an essential milestone in a baby’s development, and doesn’t get a whole lot of love in the baby food market. Lil’ Bits recipes offer a gradual texture progression which helps babies learn the skills they need to transition to table food.

Our baby girl was a slow-starter when it came to food. We were in the thick of tough stomach issues with Scarlett by the four-to-six month mark (when parents typically start to introduce solids). Eventually, and with a lot of long days and plenty of slow weight gain, we got Scarlett’s milk protein allergy and acid reflux {mostly} under control. Miraculously, Gerber’s Lil Bits™ helped our baby girl learn to chew and eased her transition to table food.

Scarlett lost interest in pureed baby foods pretty quickly, but Gerber Lil’ Bits had texture, which she loves, and the recipe was gentle on her stomach (which we love.) Gerber Lil’ Bits recipes are made with perfectly sized soft bit of fruits or veggies that help your baby learn to mash and chew. I also felt confident, once she began enjoying the little pieces in her Gerber’s Lil Bits™ to try other foods with her that required a bit more chewing. Chewing is an essential milestone in a baby’s development; Lil’ Bits recipes offer a gradual texture progression which helps babies learn the skills they need to transition to table food. It really was the perfect transition between soft/pureed baby food to food that required real chewing before swallowing. The texture taught her to eat things like soft vegetables, potato, soft cooked chicken and fish, noodles and fruit.

Gerber is launching 10 new Lil’ Bits recipes specially made to help crawlers learn to chew. Lil’ Bits recipes come in 7 fruits and 3 veggies and Lil’ Bits recipes come in convenient plastic tubs that go anywhere.
