Summer Fun for Baby

Summer is such a great time for all.  The weather is perfect and great for outdoor play and travel.  I love the summer as I get so much more time to spend with my kids and we get to do a whole host of things we can't do when the snow is on the ground.  This summer is exciting for my youngest as he has finally got enough teeth to actually enjoy eating all of the wonderful fresh fruit that summer brings with it.  The larger variety means less work for me actually as whatever I bring for my older kids, he can have too.  He was (and still is) exclusively breastfed until he was 7 months old as he just wasn't ready for any foods but now he eats like a trooper.

He will pretty much eat anything small enough and soft enough on his own.  Finger foods are great especially when I am out and about with all 4 of my munchkins.  Ripe, fresh fruits like peaches, pears, cantaloupe or kiwi are great for all of my kids.  Disney baby has lots of great things for taking food on the go like bibs, bottles and sippy cups. The learner sippy cup is a great addition to my on the go products.  It is the only one my little man will drink from at all.  I really think the small size and easy to hold handles are the reason he loves it so much.

For some great summer baby-friendly recipes that are sure to please even the pickiest of kids, check this out.

Don't forget to use sunscreen (as long as baby is over the 6 month mark) and hats like this which I love (I have it in blue) and cute outfits like the one my little man is wearing from the Disney Baby collection at Walmart and most of all enjoy the summer and get out with your little ones and have fun!
