Weaning

Hi all, I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice. All of a sudden my baby seems MASSIVELY interested in food and whenever me or my fiancé have something he tries to grab it out of our hands. We were advised by the health visitors not to start weaning until he was 6 months old but he’s giving me all the si...

Breakfast ideas 💡

I’d love to hear your ideas on what you send your babies to the childminders with for breakfast! I’ve tried a bunch of overnight oats and breakfast bars, but I’m looking to mix things up a bit. Any suggestions?

Baby not interested in solids

At our 4 month appt our pediatrician told us we could try to start some purées and baby cereal with our little one. She is now 5.5 months and still not interested at all. I have tried a couple different purées and we can barely get her to eat 3 spoonfuls (tiny baby spoonfuls). Not sure if she should be more interest...

Protein/main meal main item

I have been really struggling with weaning from the start (son is nearly 10 months old), I can’t get my head around it and mostly I always feel like I have brain fog with anything to do with it. As well as being petrified of baby choking (although getting a little more used to it now), the food wastage is really bot...

Liquids with solid meals

My baby is 8 months old, still won’t take a bottle or sippy cup. My question is, am I supposed to be giving him liquids with his solids? And any advice on how I can get him to take some kind of cup would also be appreciated. We’ve tried the obvious. Different nipples, different drinks. Hes got teeth now and my n...

Struggling with 1yr old feeding

My LO has never been a big eater. We’ve tried a few different foods but she still only really eats food from pouches, yogurt & fruit puree. Spits out lumps. She snacks on a biscuit, crisps anything crunchy. But everything else she pushed on the floor or just refuses. She only has 2 teeth & 2 coming through.

Anyone else struggling with 1 year old refusing food?

My little boy has always been such a good eater, weaning was so much fun because of it. However, over the past few weeks he has started to refuse food (especially dinner food). Stuff that I know he's really enjoyed, he now throws on the floor or turns his head... Anyone experiencing the same?

Finger foods/ coughing or choking

My boys getting into eating a lot more now, he’s progressing but still coughs/chokes(gags) and I help him, but does well after it. Is this normal to experience during their first time with finger foods and solids? Just want to know, so I can calm down a bit 😅

My LO will only eat solid food from a silicone feeder. It is so frustrating. I've tried spoons and giving him food for him to feed himself. The only way he will eat the puree food is through the silicone feeder. Any advice?

So far, I have given him apples, pumpkin, sweet potatoes, and green beans. He was not a fan of the green beans.

Tips on baby led weaning

Does anybody have any tips on baby led weaning? Like a way you manage to keep things more or less clean or products you can't live without? I'm half starting with my daughter and I'm hating how she dribbles out her food and it goes under her bib and on her clothes 🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️
