I have so many questions for my baby – what should he eat – what should he not eat and I ask a ton of questions every time we go to the doctors….
I nurse him but also use this formula that my cousin suggested that he seems to like https://organicbabyshop.com/products/lebenswert-stage-1-organic
Occasionally I give him goat milk to mix it up from this brand :https://www.kabrita.com/
I have tried a mix of baby foods and also we make our own a bunch but loving loving SERENITY KIDS. I love everything about this company – the combinations, the consistency of the product, the knowledge and thought process. I discovered them at MOMMYCON & I am so happy I did !
Tatum really likes it and I feel like we were establishing a real mix with his food with meat & veggies and lots of good fats.
We started him with a few mixtures that we tried ourselves at 4 months once a day a few spoonfuls. Then at six months we started SERENITY –

They believed in a paleo diet & lifestyle
Fruit purees are packed with sugar and devoid fat & protein
Their careful combinations of premium, humanely raised meats and organic veggies are free of hormones, antibiotics, GMOs, gluten, fillers, grain, dairy, corn, allergens, eggs and nuts. Plus, our squeeze packets are easy for you (or your baby!) to tote around in a diaper bag, purse or car. They are completely shelf-stable and good for a year after purchase.
They hand-select the small family farms that produce their meat, and even visited many of them. These beyond organic farms are dedicated to respecting animals and farming in a way that gives back to the land. Of course, these animals are never fed GMO feed, and are completely free of antibiotics, added hormones and pesticides. All of the meat is certified humanely raised by the Global Animal Partnership.
BRAIN & BODY
Your baby needs 30g of fat per day! This supports brain development, hormone regulation and builds the immune system.
Fat is also needed for your baby’s digestive system to absorb fat-soluble vitamins like A, D, E and K.
FULL & RESTED
Fats are satiating foods, which means your baby will feel full longer and get a longer, higher-quality night’s sleep.
VEG IS BETTER
Your baby naturally enjoys sweeter foods, but the high sugar content in fruit can be excessive for their tiny bodies.
Vegetables contain the same important vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals and fiber as fruits and then some!
Choosing veggies, meat and fat over fruit purees means more balanced nutrition and fewer blood sugar crashes.
Every bite counts. Choose foods that are easy to absorb and nutrient dense. Meat is high in protein, zinc, iron, and B vitamins.
EASY TO DIGEST
Your baby’s stomach contains all the enzymes necessary to digest meat.
Amino acids in animal protein are better absorbed than protein from vegetables.
promotes healthy vision, immunity and gene expression. The best sources of vitamin in the form of retinol are liver, eggs and full-fat dairy products and the best sources of vitamin A precursors are sweet potatoes, leafy green vegetables, squash, carrots and many other orange and green fruits and vegetables.
helps to process metabolism and is important for neurological health (including playing a role in myelination from early fetal development all the way through early adulthood). The best sources of vitamin B12 are animal products like meat, fish, shellfish, poultry and eggs
plays a role in synthesizing collagen and neurotransmitters during childhood. It’s also critical for proper immune function. The best sources of vitamin C are citrus fruits, melons, berries, kiwis, papaya, mango and pineapple.
supports children’s growing bones and teeth through its role in facilitating calcium metabolism. The best sources of naturally occurring Vitamin D (apart from what the body produces during sun exposure) are fatty fish, liver, eggs and full-fat dairy.
builds bones and teeth. An adequate intake during childhood and adolescence is necessary in order for children to attain strong peak bone mass and reduce their risk of osteoporosis later in life.
promotes brain development in infancy. The body uses iodine to synthesize thyroid hormones, which in turn helps control a number of processes in the body such as growth, metabolism and development. The best sources of naturally occurring iodine are unrefined sea salt, sea vegetables, fish, eggs and dairy products.
plays a role in growth, development, neurological function, immune function and cell metabolism. Zinc deficiency can impair children’s physical growth and increase their susceptibility to infection, so adequate intake is important for preventing “failure to thrive.” The best sources of zinc are organic meats, shellfish, crustaceans, nuts and seeds.
(specifically DHA and EPA) build cell membranes and promote healthy brain development, vision, gene expression and nervous system function. The best meat sources are fatty fish such as salmon, mackerel, tuna and sardines, but they can also be found in avocado and olive oils.
