I’ve almost completely… Keep reading →

Finger Foods for Babies with Few Teeth

Both of my girls were late teethers. Sofía’s first tooth came in at 10 1/2 months and Bella’s first tooth came in only a bit before that (bad, I know, I didn’t write it down!). So when it came down to food they could eat that was not pureed, it became a bit tricky. Or so I thought…. Keep reading →
