Introducing Solids and Establishing Healthy Eating Habits
On Monday, 10/21, Dr Glynn will be visiting our New Parent group at 12:30 to share information about introducing food to our infants. Feeding your baby can be a fun process of introducing the many different flavors and textures of whole foods.
The goal is to emphasize healthy eating and to teach parents how to positively shape their child’s taste preferences. A growing body of research shows that babies’ palates are influenced before birth. Maturing in the “amniotic soup” infants taste the foods their mothers eat. This process of “sampling” foods continues for breast-fed children, as mother’s milk takes on the flavors of what she consumes.
Our little ones love tasty food as much as we do! Learn about adding seasoning with herbs and spices, garlic or onion, & get some guidance on how to get started feeding your little one solids.

Nicole Glynn, MD grew up in Santa Cruz California where she was first introduced to the idea of integrative medicine. Dr. Glynn’s father, a pediatric dentist, influenced her to become a pediatrician. She received her bachelor’s degree in Combined Sciences at Santa Clara University and before attending medical school was involved in research at the UCLA Center for Human Nutrition and Stanford University Center for AIDS Research. She earned her medical degree from Creighton University and completed her pediatric residency at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland. During her residency, she provided care to many underprivileged children and became especially curious about the growing pediatric epidemics of asthma, eczema, and obesity. After becoming a mother her interest in nutrition, supporting breastfeeding, and integrative medicine deepened. During her pregnancy, she made changes to “green the womb” as her awareness of the impact of environmental toxins on fetal development became more personal.
Dr. Glynn and her family live in San Francisco where she has practiced at a variety of locations including Kaiser, Noe Valley Pediatrics, and Stonestown Pediatrics. Dr. Glynn joined GetzWell Pediatrics in part because she loves taking more time with patients and their families, building strong relationships and providing personalized holistic care.
She is a board-certified pediatrician and a member of the American Academy of Pediatrics. In her free time, she enjoys hiking, spinning, yoga, barre classes and nurturing her young daughters.
