Everything your baby needs for a healthy and happy belly
Starting solids isn't always the easiest. But don't worry, we understand your struggles and support you on your way. This course will teach you how to spot when your baby is ready for and takes interest in solids. We share our techniques and tools für mealtime success with your family. The best part is: We not only show you everything there is to know about feeding your baby, but also teach you how to raise an intuitive eater and how to decrease picky eating from the start.
Let's cover the basics together!
- When can I start introducing my baby solids?
- What can I feed my baby?
- Are there foods to avoid?
- What about allergies?
- purees vs. baby led weaning
- safety while eating (e. g. choking vs. gagging)

Frequently asked questions
There are several signs that signal that your baby is ready for complementary feeding. These include increased interest in the parents' food, reaching for food and opening the mouth when you come with the spoon.
Crying or screaming at mealtimes can have a number of causes. Maybe your baby is teething or is a little overstimulated by the many new impressions. Developmental spurts or illnesses can also be the cause. Observe your baby's further behaviour.
Fruit and vegetables are the right choice at the beginning: foods that are easy to hold and have a rather soft consistency in the mouth. It's not difficult to eat, but it stimulates motor skills and interest.
In the Kinderheldin complementary feeding course you will learn everything about an uncomplicated start to complementary feeding.
Yes, our midwife will be happy to answer all your questions about pregnancy, giving birth and co.
