Thank you!!ended up cutting them into quarters - LO seemed to like them! Now trying to find the courage to offer grapes and cherry tomatoes - half or quarters?

How about meat - have you tried giving any meat yet?

LO is breastfeeding 5-6 times a day. How's it going for you?

I did quarters for grapes and I've only given them once, that's my scary food!

Haven't tried meat because we're raising them vegetarian. My friend tried it with her 7 month old though and it went well, she just sucked it really.

Still feeding lots, about 5-6 in the day and 2-3 at night.

My boy only feeds 5-6 times in total. I don't know how you cope with so many night feeds.

LO is really enjoying exploring food now - he enjoyed a nectarine this morning and pasta for dinner. Eating lots!!

Got any breakfast ideas? So far we've done weetabix soaked in milk and porridge fingers.

Still not sure about rice cakes. Can I give him large ones? The organix ones scare me - he tends to put a whole one in his mouth which freaks me out! Xx

I'm used to night feeds, it's wanting to get up to play in the middle of the night that drives me crazy.

I'm a bit stuck with breakfast as well. She's not keen on cereals so I've been doing toast and fruit.

Rice cakes are fine, DD has had both types, they just dissolve really.

Hiya how's it going? My LO has got a cold now so eats a bit less but generally he does well with the foods we've tried so far. Latest addition are cherry tomatoes. Down to 4 breastfeeds now. Sleeps a bit better but wakes for his dummy.

Getting better, she's eating more and I've got her on lactulose to sort out a bit of constipation. We tried hummus the other day and that went down well. I've got butternut squash spaghetti for her to try tonight which I think will be funny.

Hey. If hes fairly good at eating go ahead but just watch him
Closely. I have a ten month old. I started her on pureed veg. Then i started letting her chomp on bits of toast. Bits of grated cheese. Introduced scrambled eggs and let her chomp on toast. Little pieces of strawberry and grapes. Cheese spread sandwhiches and just break it up into little pieces. When they are mastering it pasta twists go down well. Raisons. Maltloaf.

My dd is 10 months old now and eats everything we do. She has spaghetti bolonaise. Pasta. Soup. The odd fish finger. Vegetarian cauliflower grills, beans, potato waffles occasionally, jacket potatos, loads of vegetables. Tiny tastes of sausage. Rice is good. She likes crumpets broken up. Tuna is also a good food xx

Loads of things. I am a believer in everything in moderation and plenty of fruit and veg! Just experiment. Ofcourse be cautious about salt levels but occasionally its ok to give them abit of sauce or a potato waffle. They need to learn to eat and i find the internet is full of advice to make everything yourself. But you dont always have the time. Good luck xx

Butternut squash spaghetti - what's that? Did she enjoy it? LO has missed lunch due to naps over the last two days - should I be concerned or 2 meals a day is ok at this age still?

I wouldn't worry, if it looks like she's going to miss lunch I make up for it with snacks.

I bought the butternut squash spaghetti from tesco. It's just butternut squash cut to look like spaghetti, she didn't eat much of it but she had a great time playing with it.

How's weaning going? I'm stuck for ideas what to feed LO.

Breakfast we do weetabix or think porride with a fruit (normally banana)
Lunch we do a bit of bread/toast/rice cakes with a topping like cream cheese/mashed avocado/nut butter/hummous and some organix puffs followed by fruit (grapes/blueberries/pears/kiwi/nectarine)
Dinner depends on what we have but I try to incorporate some meat and steamed veg in there as well.
Sometimes we also try yoghurt either after lunch or dinner....depends who LO feels. If too tired I avoid it.

I get the feeling he's not eating enough food at 9 months. I try not to worry as I know 'food before 1 is for fun'. He is also having 4 breastfeeds a day. Is that too much milk at this stage?

He loves his food and really loves exploring it. So much so that he grabs at everything we eat!

Any suggestions for any other foods? Can we try peas and sweetcorn at this stage? What about raisins?

xx
