Add to Calendar 10/05/2017 06:30 PM 10/05/2017 07:30 PM America/New_York Early Childhood Essentials: Mindfully Feeding Infants

Pre-registration opens Aug. 1 and is required. At about six months, most babies are ready for solid foods. You can help babies develop healthy eating habits by learning to read baby messages about being hungry and full. You can also enhance the feeding experience by gaining an understanding about temperament – theirs and yours. This workshop will cover the basics of introducing solids, developing health eaters, reading baby messages and how temperament can affect feeding time.  Session offers one hour of professional development credit. Adults only please; child care is not provided. Sponsored by Great Start to Quality.
