One of the main reasons I started Your Kid’s Table in 2012 was to give parents clear and simple guides on all of their child’s feeding milestones. Over the last few years, I have covered everything from bottle weaning to straw drinking to using utensils. I strive to provide every detail to help both your and your child achieve new skills. These “how to’s” usually include strategies to assist your child in overcoming any difficulties they may be having with a particular skill and guidelines for when it is a good idea to seek out more help.
It is very important to acknowledge that although I believe these articles to be valuable resources, every child is different and development will be unique to each child. I encourage parent’s to trust their instincts, educate themselves, and discuss concerns with their pediatrician or other appropriate medical professionals like OT’s, speech therapists, and nutritionists.
