Can you believe Charlie is almost six months old! The time has gone by so quickly, it’s weird (and sad!) to think she will be one in six months. She can almost sit up on her own, still no teeth though.

She has a high interest in food! Anytime we are eating she stares at us and mimics us chewing. It’s so cute and funny but I am very happy about this. I’m hoping she will be a good eater unlike Maverik. He is getting better but he is extremely picky!! He is a chicken fingers, applesauce, cereal, and chips kind of guy.


I’ve been Google-ing away with what food techniques are best for babies, and there is a ton of information! Since Charlie doesn’t have teeth yet, I’m a little nervous about solids that aren’t mashed up. It can be stressful and overwhelming when deciding which brand of food to choose… organic vs. non-organic, this brand vs. that brand… I want something that I know I can trust and feel confident about, which is why we have been giving Charlie Beech-Nut® Naturals™.


Beech-Nut® Naturals™ is made with real fruits and vegetables, just like you would use at home. It is 100% natural, nothing artificial which is amazing! I don’t have time to puree foods, so this has been a lifesaver and Charlie loves it! So far we’ve tried Prunes, Just Green Beans, Just Carrots and Just Sweet Potatoes. Sometimes she even grabs my hand with the spoon to bring it closer to her mouth quicker. She still eats the same amount of milk but she is definitely more interested in the food.


You can easily find Beech-Nut® Naturals™ at your local Smiths (Kroger) or Target. Both places around me have a nice selection so she won’t get over done on the same items. They are also under $2.00 which is a score in my book! There are different stages of food, so as she grows I can introduce different items to her.

I hope you try Beech-Nut® Naturals™; it’s a hit in the Hedlund Household! Comment below with what flavor(s) your mini’s enjoyed most!
