Course Description
Feeding babies should be intuitive and enjoyable, yet many caregivers report feeling anxious,  and even terrified, about feeding their infants. Approaches popularized in social media, such as baby-led weaning, add to their worries and confusion. The only method with a global consensus is responsive feeding. This webinar introduces the Baby-Cued Method and the trends and products that may actually be hindering a child’s transition through critical feeding milestones.  Parents are the target of massive marketing efforts and often trust the claims on products and in social media memes. But how do popular products and practices impact the developmental trajectory and ultimately the child’s success with transitioning to table foods and self-feeding?  

Learning Outcomes
The participant will be able to:
  1. Describe how popular parenting trends, products, and practices could be impacting the development of oral-motor/feeding skill development. 
  2. Explain how responsive feeding, embedded in the framework of responsive parenting,  supports oral-motor/feeding skill development and ultimately child autonomy and self-feeding. 
  3. List at least 4 strategies for supporting oral-motor/feeding skill development and the transition to table foods in the baby’s first year of life.
