Baby: Independent or traditional feeding?

Parents of young babies often wonder about feeding their babies: “How do I do it? How do I start? Pureed or chunky?

Here are some things to think about.

First, let’s define the two types of food diversification. There is the traditional method, which consists of offering purees to the child first. Then there is child-led diversification (CDD). In this method, parents will offer large pieces directly to the child, who will eat like the rest of the family.

At the moment, DME is a very popular method. However, not all parents are comfortable with this method since it can be scary. From our side, we do not believe that one method is better than another. Only two things are important: Is your child fed? Is the meal stress-free for the whole family? That’s it! From there, make your choice based on what is best for you, your child and your family! Every family is unique! For you, it could be a mixed method that combines a little of both methods and that’s fine!

If you choose DME, the biggest advantage is the simplicity! No need to make several meals, baby will eat like everyone else. However, one disadvantage can be the fear of choking the baby. There are a few things to learn to avoid the risk of choking. For example, the importance of cutting food according to the child’s abilities.

If you opt for traditional or mixed feeding diversification instead, there are also advantages! It can take some of the stress off of you. Besides, you don’t necessarily have to make multiple meals since it’s possible to puree the family meal using a blender.

Jake Allen knows he’s not there to replace Carey Price

The Montreal Canadiens have announced that they have signed goaltender Jake Allen to a two-year contract extension starting in 2023-2024 and worth $3.85M annually. This is news that many have been waiting for given the strong rumors surrounding the CH golf tournament. It has confirmed that the Tricolore are confident that Allen will be able to guard the net during the rebuild.

As my colleague Felix Forget analyzed yesterday, Allen says he’s ready to mentor the youngsters and help the rebuild go smoothly. Another element of Jake Allen’s press conference that also got attention was when CH #34 said he clearly wasn’t there to replace Carey Price.

Here is the full quote from Jake Allen’s comments about Carey Price.

Allen’s statement clearly shows that the Carey Price era is now over and that Price has most likely already played his last game with the CH, so Allen is clearly showing that he knows he is not the CH’s goalie of the future, but simply the transition goalie.

At 32 years old, the Tricolore goaltender is aware that he will not be the headliner of the Red and White for many years like Carey Price was. He also knows that he will most likely not lead the CH to its 25th Stanley Cup in its history. We understand that Allen is realistic and that he was not sold a dream by Kent Hughes to stay in Montreal.

Nobody forced him to extend his contract with a team in the early stages of rebuilding. He loves the city and wants to pass on his experience and advice to the youngsters in the organization (especially the young goalies like Cayden Primeau). Allen will allow the youngsters to develop without always losing 7-2 or 5-1.

In short, it’s really good news for Kent Hughes and his team to have a solid transition goalie like this.
