Introducing solid food to your baby

Baby Series/ Just saying/ Parenting/ Sponsored
Brought to you by Heinz Infant

Filled with mixed emotions, it’s that exciting milestone when you first introduce solids to your baby. This step signifies that your little one is growing up, changes are coming, meal times are about to get really messy and their world is about to open up to an exciting array of new tastes and textures.

So get your camera ready, set up your video recorder, make sure you’re not wearing white and get ready for some super cute starting solids moments!

While all babies are ready at different times generally sometime close to 6 months (though not before 4 months) is the perfect time to start experimenting with solid food for babies.

Start with a smooth and pureed consistency, working towards a mash with soft lumps and then from 8 months on you can introduce coarser mashed foods, small soft lumps, chopped or grated small soft pieces, soft finger food while encouraging the art of self-feeding.

Meet the Maker – Tiny Hearts

5 minutes with/ Handmade business/ Meet The Maker
Tell us a little about you and your business.

My name is Kay, I’m married, have a teenage son, and we live in the coastal town of Mandurah Western Australia. My business Tiny Hearts is all about making cute, colourful, professionally handmade clothing for premature babies to 2 year olds.

I specialise in onesies that have colourful handmade designs appliquéd onto them, though I also make harem pants, appliquéd  t-shirts, pants, shorts, soft soled shoes, accessories and breast feeding covers for the mums. I originally started making clothes mainly for baby boys, but there has been a demand to have this type of clothing for little girls also, so Tiny Hearts caters for both little boys and girls.


What do you love about your creative business?

For the customers I cater to, being the parents, grandparents and friends buying for infants and toddlers I am able to create whatever I think people would like to see their tots dressed in. That leaves myself a wide scope of cute kids fabrics and appliqué designs to think of and design. I also enjoy the positive feedback I receive when people comment on how ‘cute’ the garments are.
