So my life has been a bit hectic and most of my free time has been spent doing way to much research into learning how to eat.
A handy guide to weaning
Everyone has an opinion on how to introduce food to your baby and there is a book, blog, vlog, buy this cheat guide for everything nowadays. But in the end I found the NHS Start4Life guide most helpful. I personally like to have nice and pretty charts to reference so I made one up for myself to stick to the fridge. Enjoy! 😊
Is your baby ready to be weaned?
From the NHS they say the following signs appear when your baby is ready. Usually this happens around 6 months of age. 👇
- Stay in a sitting position, holding their head steady
- Coordinate their eyes, hands and mouth so they can look at their food, pick it up and put it in their mouth
- Swallow food (rather than spit it back out)
