Newborn Hunger Cues

"Most newborns may be very sleepy when they first get home. They should be fed any time hunger cues are noticed, but at least every 2 hours during the day and at least once during the night. Once your pediatrician recognizes a healthy weight gain model, a pattern or schedule may be introduced."

Snack prepping for one-handed energy boosts

This week, we're sharing a tip from our newest Infant Care Specialist, Elizabeth. She's great at setting up the fridge for new families and making snack time easy for families with multiple children. She has a pro strategy on some items to keep stocked that are versatile enough to eat for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, and, of course, they're great right out of the fridge or pantry.

Tub of plain almonds
Tub of walnuts
Handful of sunflower seeds
Home made trail mix full of nuts & seeds
Dried apricots
Dried prunes – which are low GI & very rich in fiber

Tub of berries e.g. raspberries, blackberries
An apple, pear or peach
Half a grapefruit for a sit down snack
A good handful of cherries
3 or 4 plums
Fruit salad of strawberry, kiwi & grape
Sliced veggies - carrots, zucchini, etc.
Hard boiled eggs 

Be sure to stock your fridge and pantry with some of these snack items before baby comes.

For your others needs, we are always available to help with your shopping or food prep while you get some much needed rest with your new baby. Just send us an email, call us, or reach out on social media to see what we can do to help make your family happy and healthy!
