    What were the first puree's you tried when weaning?

    I thought for the first two id try one sweet one savoury so we're going for apple and sweet potato ... obviously not together :rofl:

    apple and sweet potato's gorgeous!! so's pear and sweet potato!!

    i tried katie on sweet potato first. HV advised me not to give her fruit for a while cos they get used to the sweet taste and dont want savoury. i think we tried parsnip second, but thats really sweet, so i dunno!!

    apples and pears mix really well with root veggies tho!!

    sweet potato, carot, parsnip, courgette, butternut squash, cauliflour (with or without a cheese sauce). Lexies favs are carot and parsnip together and the courgette and parsnip.x
    I was told the same about not to do the sweet until they were established on the savoury.

    That was my theory on doing a sweet and a savoury each time i introduce new things, so she doesnt get used to just having sweet

    I gave applesauce first.

    But after I gave mostly veggie... peas, pears, carrots, sweet potatoe and applesauce seemed to sit the best for her first foods.

    I tried carrots, apples, mostly the easy frut and veggies at first.

    Also for her first puree I mixed it with her baby cereal and for her second I had baby cereal in one bowl and apple puree in the other so it would all go down easier for her.

    She was also having applesauce mixed with cereal at the beginning.

    Some you might like to try:

    * SAVOURY: sweet potato, carrot and parsnip; butternut squash and carrot; broccoli and sweet potato

    * SWEET: apricot, pear, prune (recommended after Tristan got really constipated!)

    Sometimes I thicken them up with some breastmilk and baby rice

    We did carrot first then parsnip, then a mix of both. Then I got a bit over excited and we did avocado, leek, spinach, sweet potato and turnip. I only started giving fruit after about a month. We've only done banana and some grapes so far!

    Pear is always a winner and it's easy to digest too. I wouldn't worry too much about this business of them getting used to sweet and not wanting savoury. Formula and breastmilk is sweet after all. x

    I try to give a mix of fruit and veg but i agree with the idea to give them savoury first before fruit because jake is picky about his veg and only like sweet flavoured veg like carrot and sweet potato.

    Wish i'd got him more used to the veg before introducing fruit.

    Oh and he definately hates peas!! he does this gagging thing to try and get it out of his mouth, and he gaves me the most awful evil look as if to say what the hell did you give me this for! :rofl:
