Just had my second baby a few days ago so am wondering - what are some Paleo practices to start now and that we should plan on in the next few months? He's already breastfed and I try to keep the mom's diet full of as much meat and veggies as she'll tolerate.
Cosleeping, nursing on demand, elimination communication in a few weeks...supporting mom to rest... breastfeeding for as long as it works for both of them. (ideally 6 months exclusively.)
More info here:
Breastfeeding breastfeeding breastfeeding! Extended breastfeeding at that. No food imaginable is more paleo. While that may seem a lot of pressure on some moms - help and support is out there! Find a local La Leche League group.
Cosleeping and nursing on demand also promote amenorrhea which in turn restores iron stores, facilitates healing, and help with natural spacing.
Reason and reading has gotten me to this conclusion: I does not make much sense to feed a baby solids, the baby is ready to eat solids when she grabs for them herself and puts them into her mouth by herself and they do not fall out i.e. she eats them. Lamb fat will melt in the baby´s mouth when she starts to eat by herself and was an excellent first food in my experience.
Also remember that after you start introducing solids 90% of the baby´s nutrition will still be from breast milk until she is around 1 years old. At first she is just experimenting with food, learning to handle food with her hands, in her mouth, getting used to different textures and tastes. Then, she will gradually become more dependent on food over the next year.
