TW - (Traditional Weaning) Support Thread


I've started this thread for ladies who wish to wean their babies the 'traditional way'.

Traditional weaning, is where the parent/carer spoon feeds their baby, and takes away the responsibility of feeding from the baby until they are a little older and can spoon feed themselves.

We use pureed foods to start, including vegetables and fruits and baby rices and porridges, gradually introducing more food types as the baby gets older e.g. meats, dairy, eggs, fish.

This thread is for support, recipe suggestions, or even if you want to show off your LO being weaned.

It is not a debate thread for those who use other weaning methods.

Thanks ladies xxxxxx

Hi, thnks very useful thread.

I've found that soft flexible baby spoons with no edges r very easy to use for early starters.

My advise, take it slow & dont force food into ur baby.

I've just started with TW. I'm glad you started this thread. First few days involved a lot of spitting out but she's slowly starting to take some.

Had a couple of disasters including setting fire to a sieve (forgot it was made of plastic) and some projectile avacado (very messy)

The Tommee Tippee spoons are brilliant, they change colour if the food is to hot and are small and soft.

Does anyone know much about when babies should be eating lumps? Zach is awful with lumps even tiny ones and he has these hipp organic nibbles which he loves but when he bites bits off he gags and is really sick! Is this normal?

I started at 6.5 mnths (Omar doesnt have teeth yet). I started with overcooked rice with some veggie puree (I kept the puree abit runny). I used a fork to mash the rice, & gave him a small taste at 1st. I also gave him a piece of bread soaked with formula. Now he can chew with no problems.

Zach has two teeth but no interest in using them lol! I have done a couple of purees but left them with small small bits in them and he really gags! If he even just touches bread it makes him gag which i dont think is normal!

Omar also gagged when I 1st gave him dry bread & lumpy veggies. Rice is softer (it looks grainy or than lumpy). U can try baked apples, then cut it into soft pieces, or bananas. Try to give him very small pieces at 1st.

Also thick baby cereals might help. xx

My cousins daughter is almost 9 mnths old & still cant eat lumps. Dont worry hun, & dont stress ur self about it.
