When we began this journey with a very fussy, “colicky” baby girl, all I wanted to do was feed my family. All I wanted to do was nourish the little ones (and one big one) who were counting on me for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Those early days were exhausting and emotionally draining, trying to breastfeed an extremely sensitive child, trying breastfeeding elimination diets, trying to sustain myself on a limited diet so I could sustain my baby, oh and cook different food for the boys who weren’t on our dietary restrictions. Not soo much fun, but worth it…because in the end we learned the POWER of food (both good and bad!), found a diet that helped our daughter begin to heal, and it is ultimately what motivated me to start this Baby FOOD steps Blog!
Now, almost 6 years later and I have been blessed to meet some amazing mothers along this journey, mothers who really only wanted to feed and love their babies too! Some of these ladies are part of The THINKING MOMS Revolution– a group of parents who are thinking and questioning everything about children’s health because they have lived and breathed their own children’s illnesses and know that recovery is real. These parents are finding answers for not only their kids but sharing that knowledge with others who need it.
This group is having a Virtual Food Conference coming up OCTOBER 7th, 2014 that I cannot wait to listen to! A star studded cast of FOOD EXPERTS including a few of my favorites (Julie Matthews and Stephanie Senefff) will be speaking and they have just given me a FREE CONFERENCE registration to give away (just leave a comment on this blog with how food has impacted your child and on our Facebook page to be entered, will draw name October 2nd)! The greatest part is that these busy moms know that WE all are busy- so if you cannot make it on the 7th you can still register and have access to all the recordings for an ENTIRE YEAR- to listen to when everyone else in your house is in bed!
