During their baby’s earliest days, many mums are spooked by the different colors of poop they are faced with and they often ask me about first foods and what to give their baby. Today, I’m delighted to welcome back Bekah Shephard, nurse and author of ‘a Nurse in Your Purse’ and we talk all about baby led weaning first foods and poop.

Bekah shares some of her vast knowledge on these topics and you’ll hear lots of insights from the front lines including:-

  • What colors of poop to expect and when you are advised to seek outside help.
  • Foods to give your baby to help them with constipation.
  • When should you start your baby on solids.
  • How to test their first foods to ensure there are no allergic reactions of any kind before including them in their diet.
