Weaning Part 2

As we started weaning early we don’t necessarily move onto anything ‘hardcore’ during this month, towards the end of the month I started introducing some Gluten free porridge (which I blitzed in water beforehand with the blender then cooked with breastmilk), but other than that we just stuck to organic fruit, veg and baby rice. We also started introducing a 3rd meal (lunch) towards the end of the month. When I say ‘meal’ I am not meaning a 3 course slap up feast, more like 2 or 3 spoonfuls. Again I found Ella’s kitchen products indispensable for when we were out and about or a bit pushed for time.

I really noticed that Sonny was starting to enjoy his food and was beginning to make a chewing motion with his mouth – I would gradually increase the consistency of his baby rice through the month to encourage this. Some tastes he would be unsure of and would actually refuse to open his mouth and bat the spoon away. We would then just leave it and try the same food at the next ‘meal’ time. It is worth persevering as apparently babies need to try new tastes at least 15 times before they decide whether they like them or not (although Sonny made his mind up pretty quickly that he liked Avocado, Pear and peaches!).

Sonny was still taking his 4 bottles of milk a day at this stage. We would have our first ‘meal’ after the first milk, lunch around 11.30 after his second milk and dinner around 5pm between milk feeds.
