Gerber Lil’ Bits – For Babies Learning to Chew

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Gerber. The opinions and text are all mine.

Transitions are beautiful and essential part of life. The first time little squirt walks, the first time they go to school, the first day we have to ourselves…ahhh. 🙂 I digress. Transitions are awesome and they require work as well as joy.

I loved transitioning baby to solid foods with Gerber’s Lil’ Bits. The chunks of food in the baby food really made him learn to mash down on the spoon (and I used a soft spoon to ease the transition instead of him having to bit down on cold metal).

Having the pre-packaged meals was a huge time-saver too. They are resealable so if baby decides he’s full, I can save it for later… and save my cash for later too, for when he’s ready to tear into some steaks! Anyone else looking forward to feeding teenage boys? Seriously, I really enjoyed the fact knowing I had an in-between option for little man that I could depend on. I knew it was the right type of food and the right amount for him to chew. The different flavors will also prepare him for our healthy menu options at home.

I loved this transition from soft to chewable food because his face was so adorable! His first reaction to a chunk was adorable. He didn’t know what to do with it for a moment, scrunched his face, and then munched! Those little memories are the most precious. I wish I had this when my daughter was younger. It took her a long time to not gag on solid food because she was so used to having mushed food.

I know I’ve mentioned it before but my son has eating problems that stem from his allergies and his acid reflux that went untreated for so long. Gerber’s Lil’ Bits is truly a product I can trust because I know the ingredients are the best, the packaging is convenient, and the pieces aren’t hard but add just the right amount of texture to his food to help him learn to chew. If you have a little one learning to eat, make sure you let them try Gerber’s Lil’ Bits and they might even give you a “thank you” in baby sign language. 🙂 Visit here for more information.

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. 🙂

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. 🙂 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.
