The recommendation is that you try not to start weaning until your child is 6 months old. We couldn't wait that long as Baby M just wasn't getting satisfied by his bottles.
I feel like I have no idea what I am doing.
Yes there are some great guides out there but I still feel a little lost
Breakfast is well established, Baby M loves his porridge.
Baby M still has a bottle at every "meal time" as I don't think he would be getting enough nutrients from food at the moment
We have been introducing different tastes & textures. At both lunchtime and teatime.
A LITTLE UNSURE OF
DOESN'T APPEAR TO LIKE
Baby M's response to a lot of food we've tried can best be described as a shudder. It reminds me of when you try something bitter and your whole body shudders.
I tried him with a jar too - Sweet Chicken and Potato. His reaction at first was a shudder but then his mouth kept opening for more. This is a better reaction than with some of the vegetables I've made from scratch as he usually shudders then clamps his mouth shut.
My plan is to start mixing foods together. I have Annabel Karmel's book - New Complete Baby and Toddler Meal Planner so I am hoping some of these will be a hit. I really want to try and make my own food rather than use jars.
How has weaning gone for others? What struggles did you have?
