The Weaning topic
I dread talking about weaning with anyone …
I can understand people are excited to feed my daughter but why the need to throw chocolate and sugar in her face??
Anyway i was so baffled about when, what and how i went to a family foods talk at my local childrens centre.
So how does everyone feel about baby led weaning? Mums, dads, Nans and frankly anyone who can,will shout about how they fed there baby at 4 months.. And yes that was the guideline… When they had a baby. There is new research now to not start before 26 weeks, around the 6 month age and to give no purees just everything you eat! Omg! Total panic but actually it does make sense and how easy, just cook dinner for the family and then baby eats exactly the same!
So iv decided id like to try baby led, starting off with fruit and veg and slowly adding meat, dairy etc
Daddy may not be impressed and his OCD may go slightly crazy as wowza its going to be messy…
I think weaning is always a tricky subject and when it comes down to it.. Mummy knows best 🙂
Elle has just turned 5 months so we will be starting around the 6 month mark
So next step find a high chair!?
