Gerber Lil’ Bits


Are you an old-school mom who chews baby’s food for them? I know my friend’s mother did it for her, but I’m not too crazy on the idea. For some reason (hand sanitizer anyone?), I am a germaphobe, even when it’s coming from me to my baby. Now that baby is getting ready to chew and being offered bites from a-hem sister’s plate, I’m in the position of figuring out what can be chewed and what shouldn’t be at this stage.

Gerber 3rd Foods are really helpful in this area because they are specifically made to help with learning to chew. To be technical, it’s baby mushy food with “Lil’ Bits” thrown in to introduce chewing. Instead of sister throwing a chip at baby, I can have her help me feed him with these ready to go foods. Gerber 3rd Foods are specifically made to help with learning to chew.

As much as I like to be the do-it-all mom and make all of the food, finding the right mixture of chunks at this stage is difficult and time consuming. If I pulse the blender too much, I have to start over again. This mixture really helps take out the guess work of things. Not to mention, if I made a whole batch of it and he didn’t like it I wasted money and a lot of time. This way, he can explore a world of flavors without breaking the bank. I love their flavors too… sweet potato, apple, carrot, & cinnamon. I ALMOST want some. πŸ™‚

Lil’ Bits comes in convenient plastic tubs that come with their own lid which is perfect for busy mamas! With different tastes and flavors for baby to explore, I can get him ready for table food – from his OWN plate. πŸ™‚ If your little one is in between mushy food and table food, look for Gerber 3rd Foods Lil’ Bits at your local store and visit here for more information.
