This newsletter is the first in a series to help parents navigate the confusing and conflicting advice they may be receiving about feeding their baby.

Feeding Our Youngest: 2 Months. MF3557. Sandy Procter and Lisa Martin. At 2 months, babies give cues to when they are hungry and when they are full. Learning to follow these cues around feeding time help make this time satisfying and help establish good patterns for the months to come.

Feeding Our Youngest: 5 Months. MF3574. Sandy Procter and Lisa Martin. At 5 months, your baby is showing increasing interest in your meals and the food you eat. Change will be the key for the next few months, as your baby learns about food and begins building lifelong healthy eating skills.
