Betty-so far he has eaten everything!! I have a collection of Ellas Kitchen and am still working through them all but he seems to love strawberry and apple. Today he will be trying his first home made meal of carrots, swede and baby milk! I just blended it down into a smooth puree.
He hates baby rice and porridge but Hipp Organic do a banana and peach cereal which he likes-it looks like porridge!
How do you progress from tasters? I have been making sure he keeps his milk up as heard they shouldnt drop milk until 6 months? He is enjoying food but so far I just offer once a day then give him his milk as usual? Im pretty sure i am meant to do something different but no idea what. Going to take him TUesday for a 5 month weigh in xxx
girls.....it was a disaster! I have him my home made puree and he didnt like it at all! I then offered him Hipp Cauliflower, carrot and pea and he hated that more!!!
I really want him to like home made things and I got worried over Ellas after somebody on the weaning but said event heir svoury ones are too sweet (no sugar just mixed with fruit sometimes too) so I tried the new Hipp one to try and make sure he doesnt just like sweet and it ended up everywhere! he absolutely hated it not sure what to do now?
Anna dont worry there will be plenty more stuff he may not like. Cauliflower is a very strong taste so may have been that. Reason they dont recommend dropping any milk is coz they recommend to not wean till 6months. Sounds like the one meal a day is fine for now. The hipp cereal was enjoyed by mine too :-) They reackon too that a baby would need to try a taste at least 10-15 times before you couod be sure that they dont like it? You sound like you are doing a great job, dont question yourself
Ollie is currently throwing his cheese sandwiches onto the floor
Anna they go through phases of not wanting things allister is terrible at the moment just loves cheese and if all else fails I give him something cheesy. It all goes well for a good few mouthfuls then he just won't eat anymore! Nightmare!
But other than that he is fine he keeps standing on his own now - so cute!
Thanks for congrats about house, we are just getting quotes for heating, rewire etc and just hoping people's schedules aren't too full as it slows everything down!
Amelia would love to hear your story glad u r well.
To everyone else I'm on my phone and can't remember everything!
Aw Anna don't worry I'm sure he will come to like them, Daisy is the other way she devours my purees but not so keen in box cereals! Her most fab so far is pear
Like the others said don't worry too much they go through phases, my niece will only eat cold food, always has and on her terms lol! She is going through a phase of barely eating anything!
As for the next steps I think you can be baby led still, I am still just giving Daisy purée before her first feed am she is being a funny one at the mo not really having her milk properly she is teething so think that's playing a major role
Hay, hope the house comes together quickly! How exciting!!
Sara how frustrating hopefully it won't be long away!

Hi all hope your well. I keep meaning to post but on my phone its a pain and i mess it up.
We are all good, cant believe esmae is nearly 7months. some days i wish I could look back on the first few weeks again as it seems so far back. Im now combi feeding as I was happy to get to 6 months and plus I try to have busy days so its sometimes hard to express out and about. She probably has about 2 out of 5 feeds bm.
I wont lie but I will be glad to be back at work. I need routine and adult company. Caleb is still going through a tantrum stage and its so hard at times. I keep wondering where I went wrong and how I can help but it seems no matter what I do he likes to play up. He is going through a " i want stage " and its horrible. I am secretly hoping when we finally get a answer about his ears it will help things. I do think it affects him. We are due a hearing test but haven't heard anything yet so I'm ringing tomorrow as we need to get it sorted. I just keep being pushed backwards and forward between children's centre and drs but he has had fluid since august now and surely its not fair on him. Im going to explain it is affecting him now .xx sorry for the moan x
Aww pink well done for getting to nearly 7 mths youve done really well!!
As for Calebs ears it def could be contributing... My nephew has had 2 sets of grommets for glue ear, the specialist told my sis that when they have the fluid and their hearing isn't 100% they lip read which wears them out so their behaviour declines, once my nephew had the second set and his hearing improved so did his behaviour!
