Just wanted to ge tsome advice of weaning really as i am totally confused!!
I started weaning emily 3 weeks ago & so far we've established a breakfast & lunch routine.
Her routine so far is:
9.00-9.30am- Breakfast..Fruity porridge or wheaty biscuits with fruit puree.
1.00-1.30am- Lunch. Some pureed veg & pureed fruit/yoghurt for pudding.
So far emily has tried - carrots.sweet potato,broccoli,cauliflower,peas,mash,parsnip, apple, pear & banana.
Is she getting enough variety that she needs or should i start introducing meat/fish now?
Can i give her finger foods to try? If so any ideas?
If I worked it out right, 27 weeks is over 6 months right? If so, if you're comfortable, you can forgo the purees and jump straight in with whole foods. At 6 months, LO should be able to get to grips with whole foods (might take a bit of practice!!) Purees are generally for those starting weaning early.
From 6 months, meat/fish/other dairy/gluten can all be introduced as well.
Good finger foods to start with are toast (bread can stick to the roof of their mouth at first), veg/fruit fingers, crackers, breadsticks, cheese.
Ahh thanks for the advice, going to try her with some finger foods.
Can they have butter/margerine? Is it ok to try her with adult cereal for breakfast now like weetabix with cows milk or has it got to be made with her own milk?
Yep butter/marg is fine. And so is adult porridge (like ready brek) and weetabix made with cows milk. You can also use cows milk for things like mash/white sauces, it just can't be used as a drink yet instead of formula. Any dairy LO has should ideally be full fat as they need the extra calcium and calories.
