Teefer Treats June 3rd #BfCafe

I want to talk about introducing solids to breastfed babies.
I think it is important to know the dos and donts of how to nurse and feed to ensure your baby still gets the most nutrition and calories.
I think we should talk about the many reasons to wait to the 6 month mark .
I want to discuss the other healthy options equivalents to the calories in breastmilk.
I would also like to talk about some things we as mothers can take if we feel at this time our supply is getting low.

I want to introduce you to Teefers Treats.
This is an etsy store (I know we ALL love etsy!). Here is some information on her:

Did you know?:
All of our cookies here at Teefers are made with a dietary supplement called Brewer's Yeast. Brewer's yeast is a great source of chromium, selenium and B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (niacin), B5 (pantothenic acid), B6 (pyridoxine), B9 (folic acid), and B7 (biotin). These vitamins help break down carbohydrates, fats, and proteins, which provide the body with energy. They also support the nervous system, help maintain the muscles used for digestion, and keep skin, hair, eyes, mouth, and liver healthy. What a lot of people don't realize is that breastfeeding can inhibit insulin production, making the body retain carbohydrates as sugars. So not only are Teefers cookies good for your mouth, they're good for your body! (And if you are breastfeeding, you'll be passing those great vitamins on to your baby as well.)

She is offering some of her goodies to win if your number is chosen by
Lacation cookies to help build your supply
teething treats to help with introducing the solids that your little one's need!
I'm excited to bring you Teefers Treats and help get the word out!

NOW RSVP if you're hungry!:
Thursdays at 10pm EST

Baby J has started solids and I'm a bit rusty this time around. Can't wait for the discussion!
