Intro to Solid Foods: A Baby-Led Approach

Intro to Solid Foods: A Baby-Led Approach

Introducing Solids to your baby in laid back, anxiety-free, picky-eater preventing way!

This is a comprehensive class, where we will discuss the ins and outs of guiding your baby through the transition to foods, in a healthy, anxiety free way.

We will discuss:
- how to discover if your child is ready (not an age, but a set of abilities to look for)
- what foods babies need other than your milk, or formula milk
- how to prepare foods
- what to look for, to help understand if you're moving too fast or too slow
- the important of maintaining gut health and reducing inflation
- baby-led weaning
- the role of chewing food and why it's a key to great digestion
- how to protect milk supply and maintain nursing if that is your goal
- how to make sure you are encouraging good eating habits, avoiding picky eaters, and making meal time an enjoyable social time

You will receive emailed handouts, as well as access to my support as you journey through solids!

When: Thursday August 22nd
From 6-8pm
Where: Abaton Integrative Medicine
www.abatonim.com

$40 per person.
$15 for an additional caregiver (parent, grandparent, babysitter, etc of the same child).

Limited spaces available! Payment is due to secure your spot.

Message me via www.ashleypickett.com with questions.

If you don't personally need this class, please consider sharing it with your friends! If you are a practitioner and would like to attend, please contact me for details about practitioner fees and to see if there is space.

Anxiety-Free Parenting Workshop

Anxiety-Free Parenting Workshop

Are you looking for a deeper understanding of your child’s real needs as they grow?

The way we choose to discipline our kids effects their behavior in the moment, and can also have effects on their feelings about themselves and their ability to be authentic. Our words and actions may shape our children’s understanding of this world and can lead to anything from feelings of safety to constant worry.

Anxiety-Free parenting is bringing you an opportunity to explore the choices we make as parents, and follow the impact of those choices through to adolescence. Are we supporting our long term goals we have for our children? If not, what choices can we make now, to cause the attitudes and qualities we would love to see in our future child?

We will cover:

Positive discipline
Tantrums
Time outs and separation
Hitting, biting, physical
Attachment and responsiveness
Long term vs Short term goals
Strategies for success

Please register and save your spot in this highly requested class!

You’re reading this because you’re already an amazing parent, and want to continue to learn and explore how to keep up with your authentic and instinctual style of raising kids with healthy limits and boundaries. This class is meant for you!

We support:

  • sore nipples and breasts

  • blocked ducts and mastitis

  • vasospasm (compressed nipples and breast pain)

  • baby not getting enough at breast/supplementing

  • weaning from the breast or adding bottles

  • going back to work

  • trouble getting baby to feed to sleep

If you have Breastfeeding concerns, our IBCLC will take down your recent history, examine your baby and assess a feeding, and provide solutions to move through your Breastfeeding concern. Families may come weekly to check in, have their latch assessed, weight babies or to make changes to current feeding plans. Some challenges require a more targeted consultation to start. If a one on one consultation is suggested, the initial visit will be discounted by our drop in fee.

If you have sleep concerns, our Infant Sleep educators will assess your history, your Infant and your sleep challenge and provide guidance and solutions for your family. We may suggest other practitioners who can help solve the underlying concern. It is important to note that we help within the range of biologically normal infant sleep support, and do not provide information or strategies on Sleep training.

Anxiety-Free Parenting Workshop

Anxiety-Free Parenting Workshop

Are you looking for a deeper understanding of your child’s real needs as they grow?

The way we choose to discipline our kids effects their behavior in the moment, and can also have effects on their feelings about themselves and their ability to be authentic. Our words and actions may shape our children’s understanding of this world and can lead to anything from feelings of safety to constant worry.

Anxiety-Free parenting is bringing you an opportunity to explore the choices we make as parents, and follow the impact of those choices through to adolescence. Are we supporting our long term goals we have for our children? If not, what choices can we make now, to cause the attitudes and qualities we would love to see in our future child?

We will cover:

Positive discipline
Tantrums
Time outs and separation
Hitting, biting, physical
Attachment and responsiveness
Long term vs Short term goals
Strategies for success

Please register and save your spot in this highly requested class!

You’re reading this because you’re already an amazing parent, and want to continue to learn and explore how to keep up with your authentic and instinctual style of raising kids with healthy limits and boundaries. This class is meant for you!
