- Beginner Texture
Gerber’s Lil’ Mixers™, allow you to add a little or a lot of texture to customize your little one’s food as they learn new skills.
An important milestone in a baby’s feeding development.
When? The time to do this is approximately 8 months when baby is crawling with their stomach off the floor and developing their chewing skills.
Why? While experiencing new textures, your baby learns oral motor skills – particularly moving his/her tongue side to side, mashing and chewing food together to prepare for swallowing. Each new texture is a new learning experience for baby.
Beginner Texture – The texture of this Lil’ Mixers™ product is at a Beginner level
The puffed grain pieces are a perfect site and shape to be transferred to the side of baby’s mouth for making and practicing early chewing.
Tips: The pieces soften as they sit in the puree and we suggest leaving for 5 minutes before feeding for optimal beginner texture. To increase the texture level beyond Beginner you can feed right after mixing.
Mixing: You can add a little, or a lot of the mix-in for baby, depending on how many times you’ve previously introduced this or other textures, and how comfortable you anticipate baby will be.
Start with a small amount of the mix in, and increase the amount as baby appears more comfortable and begins to develop mashing, chewing, and swallowing of the texture.
