Why We Chose Baby Led Weaning and Tips/Reasons Why To Try It

Posted by Melissa Robertson-Bye on

Have you wondered how you are going to introduce solid foods to your baby?  Maybe you are nervous about where to start. What foods to start with. Or worried if they will even like it.  When Lilly was ready to start eating foods we started with whole, real foods in their nature state, also known as Baby-Led Weaning. We never introduced purees until after she was a year old. My life was made easy as I knew that anywhere we would go she could eat the food that was being served. We never salted our food while cooking but we...

Why Safety?

Posted by Melissa Robertson-Bye on

Over the years of running Munching Monster, I have received numerous questions about our products and lots of comparisons with other local companies. I have done posts about this before but felt like it needed it’s own blog so that I can share with other parents. Picture this…you are a new parent.

Listening to Lilly

Posted by Melissa Robertson-Bye on

I love this photo but getting here was full of stress! We hadn't done a photoshoot with us for Munching Monster Chewlery in a long while and I just wanted it to go perfect. I remember being so high stressed on this photoshoot day. The plan was photoshoot, lunch and back to school shopping⁠. ⁠I laid out the dress I wanted her to wear. It was white with black bows. It was matching with my black dress and Jesse's black shirt and blue jeans. It was part of my vision for the shoot. I had the shoes picked out, they were cute...
