You want someone that “gets” you to show you the dos and don'ts of introducing solids, sort through the B.S., and give examples of how it actually works in the REAL world for YOUR baby.
You crave the knowledge necessary to make the best feeding decisions for your baby, the ability to adapt them to your own situation, and the confidence that you’ve made the right choices.
Even when things don’t go as planned, you want a sense of calmness that you know what you’re doing, and trust in your baby’s instincts.
When I was introducing solids to my first son, I was going through school, my relationship with food was still healing, and I was terrified of making a wrong choice for him.
You followed your baby’s development week by week during your pregnancy, your researched the best baby products for the nursery, and I know you packed the kitchen sink in your hospital bag! If you’re anything like me, you’re not about to leave your baby’s nourishment to a few recommendations you found on Google and hope you pick the best course of action.
By getting ready for this amazing milestone in your baby’s life, you’ve already read all the recommendations, tried to piece together somewhat of a process, and but you still posting in mommy Facebook groups questions about what others picked as first foods to start with.
Between your doctor recommending iron fortified rice cereal, your government’s health agency recommending meats and nutritionist recommending fruits and vegetables as first foods, it’s kind of hard to pick who’s right.
We all have doubts in our lives, but when it comes to the health of your baby, you don’t want to make decisions from a place of uncertainty.
The best advice I received about parenting from another mom was “People will give you so much advice, but listen to none of it. Instead do what’s right for your child.”
Trust in your baby. Trust in your knowledge. And trust that you are making the right decisions.
And that’s exactly how I decided to parent and exactly how I want to teach you this process. Because when you trust that you know what your child needs nutritionally, it’s much easier to disregard all advice and go with your own instincts.
An online course for health conscious moms who wants to experience peace of mind, trust, and joy watching her baby eat happily!
During this online program you’ll learn the importance of being in-tune with your baby’s development.
You’ll learn about your baby’s nutritional needs so that you can make the best decisions around your meals.
You’ll see how Baby’s First Bites is more about creating your own plan based on a roadmap with plenty of examples and less about following blindly a rigid process.

Everywhere I looked moms are having trouble piecing together the fragmented information available online to make a plan for themselves on how to approach this.
My goal with Baby’s First Bites is to empower you to trust your instincts and read your baby’s cues so that you can adapt this milestone to what works best for BABY and YOU.
Hi, I’m Ana-Maria, but friends call me Ana. I’m a Registered Holistic Nutritionist through the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition. Helping moms nourish their babies and kids is not my job, it’s my passion.
I have two boys, a 7 month old (yup we are going through the introduction to solids right now) and a 2.5 year old. But it wasn’t always so easy to know what to do with my oldest son.
Lucky for me, my training along with some trial and error allowed me to be able to cut through the noise and figure out how to introduce solids for him, but it wasn’t without making some mistakes that cost me once he was older and entered that picky eating stage. Hindsight is 20/20 right?
In the meantime, I have also taken additional training specifically geared towards baby and child nutrition. I see a huge difference in myself now that I’m going through this milestone with my second son.
I went from making huge batches of baby puree to stockpile in my freezer to having several fresh options available in my fridge. I don’t feel any anxiety. I’m enjoying every moment of it now that I have no more fear of making the wrong choices for him.
One of the things that was a game changer for me was to learn about my baby’s development. I don’t like to be told “do this, or do that”. I want to know why.
I talk a lot about baby’s development in Baby’s First Bites and outline what they are capable of at each stage. This alone is worth it’s weight in gold because it’s what will take your fear of doing the wrong thing away.
And with no fear of making a mistake, there’s only room for possibilities!
What I really want you to get out of Baby’s First Bites, is relief of guilt and anxiety that you are "missing something". I want you to have peace of mind, trust, and joy watching your baby eat happily!
You won’t get a second chance to introduce solids to your precious little baby, so let’s do it the stress-free way, shall we?
You won’t need to juggle competing and conflicting advice of a doctor and a nutritionist because you’ll be able to confidently make the right decision for yourself.
You won’t need to navigate the trial and errors of going through this yourself and wonder if your baby is getting the nutrition she needs.
What you do need, is to take a chance and invest in a program that is completely centered around giving you the tools, the support and the guidance to introduce solids to your baby, your way!
You’ll receive a Welcome Email with your login details to our private member’s area where all the content will be uploaded.
You can log in and look through the material whenever you are ready.
The beauty of the program is that you can go at your own pace. Most of us can't make it to a laptop, so rest assured you can go through everything right on your phone.

Ana Maria is my enciclopédia, my google and my bible for anything baby and holistic health related questions I have. I can always trust that any information provided by her has been thoroughly researched and I feel safe to apply her advices to my precious baby. The love and thoughtfulness that goes into anything she does is rare to find. I love her positive outlook and sweet way of always finding a solution that works for my family. Thank you Ana Maria for all the love and support you provide me and my baby!
Working with Ana-Maria has taught me to cook yummy meals with healthy food and how to listen to my body. I also like that I have less cravings now. Even after the detox I continue to make and eat the recipes. :o)

As I was going through a detox program with Ana, I enjoyed how simple the smoothies were and the recipe book gave great options. I could not believe how much energy I had being on this program!! I had continuous energy throughout the day and my weight loss was incredible.
Ana doesn't just give you a nutrition plan and send you off to fend for yourself after. This is a person that provides on-going support and advice, ready to help whenever it is most needed. I appreciate that she can emphasize with my own food struggles with a young child, having two kids of her own and passing on the knowledge from her personal experience to help her clients.

First of all CONGRATULATIONS! It’s not too early at all and I would totally recommend it to secure the price! You won’t be able to implement anything yet, but remember you have lifetime access to everything. You can still read through all the material and listen to all the audio’s. When the time comes, you will have the materials and the facebook community for support.
While some sections won’t apply, you’ll still find huge value in the strategies I offer from 9 months onwards. Plus, one of the best things is that I go over how to feed your child to minimize the picky eating phase which is oh so valuable.
Oh boy I totally understand you! With a baby and a toddler in my household, you just don’t stop! Each of the 5 sections should take you about 30 minutes to go over. So plan for 30 min time to consume the material, 1.5 hours of food prep. The amount of time you spend in the Facebook community is totally up to you. You can do it all at once or read the sections that are relevant to you.
You can ask me all your questions in our private Facebook Community. I’ll be in the every day helping where ‘m needed. I’m also just an email away!
I don’t care about the latest trends, I care about your baby thriving so I include recommendations for both! Understanding how to let baby lead the way is crucial in establishing healthy eating habits for life. That means, your baby will choose how she wants to eat and it’s your job to support her. I’m not going to be a good match for you, if you have your heart set on doing only BLW or only purees.
I want you to be completely happy with your program. And for that reason, you have 14 days from the date of purchase to request a refund if you feel Baby's First Bites is not for you.
