Our bouncing vegan baby: Diet and nutrition

I’m confident that our baby can eat a well-planned vegan diet and grow up fit, healthy, and strong.

Starting solid foods: Weeks 14 and 15

During weeks 14 and 15 of starting solid foods, we focused less on our daughter’s food, and more on making sure we all ate a big range of foods.

Starting solid foods: Weeks 4 to 6

During weeks 4 to 6 of our daughter starting solid foods, we all got more confident, and began to feel that her starting solid foods was more a part of our routine.

This adjustment took time.
