We have you covered every step of the way
- Most professional organizations recommend you start weaning your baby around 6 months
- Start with bland foods and make them almost as liquid as milk
- Baby rice, pureed vegetables and pureed fruit are the most popular to start with.
- Give your baby one taste at a time, that way you will know which he or she prefers and can detect any adverse reactions.
- When you puree food you can puree a week's worth all at once. Buy an ice cube tray and freeze the food, take out a cube at each feed, making up larger amounts as baby's appetite grows.
- Try to organise mealtimes for the same time each day – your baby will know what to expect and be more likely to be happy to eat their meals.
- Offer your baby healthy foods that you and your family usually eat – mashed into small manageable lumps.
- AVOID eggs, salt, sugar, nuts and honey.
- Boiled then cooled tap water is the best alternative drink to breast or formula milk
- Avoid fizzy drinks and cow's milk until they are over 12 months.
- Buy bigger bibs – feeding just got a lot messier.
- A splash mat or floor mat is always a good idea to keep your floor clean.
- Travel products such as cutlery cases and storage pots are handy for when you are out and about.
