My daughter Norah sold me on BLW 5 years ago, when she refused pureeds. On a family trip to Mexico, I saw how much she LOVED the foods we were eating – the bun from the table, the strip of pineapple - so much more than the mush. It was a blast to watch her explore whole foods. And as a bonus, much easier for me!
As of 2003, I am a registered dietitian - the only regulated nutrition profession. I completed a BSc from University of Alberta, an MSc from University of British Columbia, a competitive 1-year internship and submit competencies yearly for the College of Dietitians of Alberta. I’ve operated my private practice First Step Nutrition for 8 years.
You want to make sure you have an expert to guide you on your BLW journey. That’s me! I am a member of Dietitians of Canada, the Calgary Attachment Parents Village, co-chair of the Calgary Breastfeeding Matters Group……and most importantly mother of three! Nolan is 9, Norah is 5 and Arden is 1.
