Baby-Led Weaning: Our experience

Baby-Led Weaning is amazing! We started from the very beginning when Jones was first being introduced to solids. While we had some trials occasionally it has been a great success over all. This video gives a simple explanation on what baby led weaning is and how it has gone for us.

My son is 14 months currently and is eating very well. I enjoy being able to trust his instincts and allow him to (mostly) pick and choose the foods he will partake in. We are still nursing 1-2 times a day for added nutritional benefit, but over all he eats real food. We do not serve him milk or alternative milks but maybe once every other day. We focus on him eating solids and homemade smoothies. We give the occasional squeeze pack for added diversity and to help when we are running out the door.

Check out our video and leave a comment! :)

Virtual Reality Headset Review/Tutorial

 

As Jay and I continue to move forward with Youtube we have decided to insert some product reviews. In this video I review the virtual reality case. I would give this case a 3-4 star rating. Much like its competitor google cardboard and VR box 2.0 it does have it’s flaws. Most of the headsets I have found have been rated 3-4 stars. However this would make a great gift for anyone. With the holiday season I would highly rate this item for your friends and family.

 

 

A link to all my pregnancy updates!

Hey everyone!

When I started trying to conceive I started a youtube channel. I loved watching pregnancy updates from other people and knew I wanted to make my own when I got pregnant. After I had Jones I went on to continuing to post about his life and postpartum, but now I want to expand. I am happy to announce that I am broadening my channel to Living Satisfied and not just Ellie Kinard.

On this channel we talk about ways to live a more satisfied life through tips, tricks, and products for happiness, productivity, food and nutrition, or even just talking about babies and parenting. So if any of that sounds good to you and you are wanting to live a more satisfied life consider pressing the subscribe button below!
