I'm a Stonyfield Yo'Getter. All opinions are my own.
To me, parenting becomes much easier when your baby can start to do things for themselves. Feeding themselves, going to the bathroom and sleeping through the night are big milestones that help parents relax a little. I loved when both of my girls learning to feed themselves because it meant I could sit down and eat a meal with the rest of the family instead of after everyone else got done eating. Yogurt has always been a favorite in our house for breakfast. That hasn't changed over all these years. In fact, my oldest would come home from school and make herself a bowl of yogurt for her afternoon snack. All by herself.
Yogurt is one of those great first foods because it's so smooth and creamy, making it easy for babies that are learning to hold a spoon to make it into their mouths. Even if they are just dipping it like a chip. Now that my daughters are older, we like to put all sorts of granola, chia seeds and fruits in it for an all around healthy breakfast (or snack).
There are so many cool new items for helping babies learn to eat on their own. Tommee Tippee makes a line that helps parents with the stressful aspect of feeding, the clean up. They have bowls that suction to the placemats and bibs that help catch all the falling crumbs. I've always loved the Tommee Tippee line because they make products that are designed about the needs of parents as well as the baby. We used their bottles as well.
