Let me tell you more about Baby Mealtimes...
My philosophy is based on babies learning to enjoy food and feeling confident to explore new tastes and textures. I want to show you how to gently challenge your baby to help them develop the skills they need to manage many different foods as they get older. This helps them to be less fussy and it means that you don't have to stress about what to feed them.
It's going to be fun. Are you ready?
Hi, I'm Dr Kyla
I'm the proud creator and owner of Baby Mealtimes. I'm a mama to Elsie and Cleo (who you'll see featured lots on this website!) and I'm from sunny Perth, Western Australia. I'm a lover of vegetables, a big fan of sharing food with those you love, and I get to talk about food all day long (it's a perk of the job!)
I'm a paediatric dietitian and I've been specialising in fussy eating for over a decade. I started Baby Mealtimes after having my first baby and realising that parents were SOOOOO confused about how to feed their babies when starting them off on food.
I know that the way we start to feed our babies has such a long-lasting impact on how adventurous they are with food in the future. But so many parents are getting conflicting advice about what and when to feed their babies, and this is resulting in the exact thing they were trying to prevent- fussy toddlers!
I believe that Australian parents need a reliable, practical and supportive service to help them feed their babies with confidence and without the stress. I want to help you enjoy this stage with your baby and feel good about family mealtimes, so I'll give you the tools to help you make decisions about what works best for you, your baby and your family.
Here's what my members are saying:
"A fantastic service, particularly for first time parents. Instead of the standard information on what you should feed your babies, this is the when, where, how and why, with lots of support along the way."
"Thanks so much for your daily inspiration with foods. Isla's eating has really gotten a lot better now I feel confident to let her decide and just do her thing! I feel better knowing I provide her with what she needs and how much of it she eats is her choice. So much less stressful."
"I'm so grateful for your advice and reassurance on Archer's eating. I find it so stressful and it literally takes up so much of my daily thoughts, so thanks again for helping me feel good about this!"
