Great thread!

We have been TW for about 6 weeks now and hope some of my experiences can help people!

Firstly, i got the Lindam Baby Blender which is brilliant!! I found that I was having to make enormous quantities of food for them to be pureed enough in the big blender but with the baby blender I can just throw in a banana and a peach for example and its wizzed up in 2 seconds!

I would also highly recommend the Annabel Karmel receipe books! As someone who has not cooked very much in the past, these books are so simple and loads of great ideas!

Sweet potato was a real favourite with my LO in the beginning along with potato and leeks pureed together!

Gravy can be made from vegetable stock cubes, im not sure how exactly but I know its tells you how on the back of the Boots Baby Organic Stock Cubes!

Sorry for ranting on, hope some of this was of use!

ah brill idea!

I've just started weaning Harriet, and am doing 1 'meal' a day of pureed veg about mid-day, which she gobbles down. she doesnt seem to like baby porridge at all so breakfast is a no no at the moment.
spent 2 hours last night cooking and pureeing, got a months worth of food and only spent like 3!!

have got questions tho...
when do you start on 2 meals a day, then 3??

any breakfast ideas? (no wheat...)

and when do they drop any milk for food??

I am useless!!

U start gradually u can keep 2-3 wks gap then start intorducing another solid meal (it depends on ur baby). Mine wasnt so keen to have more than 2 before he was 6.5 mnths & he still skips 1 solid meal some days.

As for breakfast u can go for baby porridge (there r lots of options at the babies section which is gluten/wheat free) or fruits purees with/without baby rice. Bananas r good for breakfast.

As for dropping milk feeds, she's not suppose to drop her intake before 6 mnths. She needs at least 28 oz of formula at this stage. Solids should not overtake milk at this early stage as it's more important than solids.

We are doing a crazy wacko mix of everything in all honesty. We use homemade puree's/ baby food jars/ normal food the lot

Butterbut Squash is a favourite here as well but blooming heck it is a NIGHTMARE to cut and prep and peel the skin and get all the seeds and stringy bits out of it! Took me ages and ended up losing sooooo much of it because I had to use a knife to peel it lol

I reccomend the Annabel Karmel Weaning book as well some of the recipes look scrumptious!

We'll be trying some stage two stuff in the next week because we started weaning at 5 months I don't want him to get too used to eating stage 1 puree's!

Carrot and Parsnip is lovely mixed together as well!

My LO is the same some days he eats two meals others he eats 3 meals but not often!

He also eats toast, has had a sugar free rusk, loves slices of chicken, cheese and tomato toasties, carrot sticks etc!

Rhiannon - you can buy ready made gravy in the baby food aisle. I think its Heinz.

Pink tinks - have you tried porridge mixed with fruit puree? Lola LOVES it, she wolfs it down lol.

Sweetlullaby - do you give LO raw carrot sticks? Or cook them? (Sorry if thats a stupid question!)

And has anyone pureed pasta?? I bought a tomato & basil sauce for babies, gonna mix it with pasta and see what she makes of it!

I like the idea of frozen banana I gave Lola a suck on my chocolate twister ice cream the other day and she cried when I took it away!!! But obviously she can't have that (especially since she's lactose intolerant - I'm allowed to give tiny bits of dairy to see how she reacts!) So the frozen banana is a great alternative.

.
U can cut it into tiny pieces after boiling then add sauce to it. Omar loves pasta with tomato sauce. He chewed it without teeth & was very excited when he was having it
