Here at Mummy Cooks we have put together a go to guide of recipes and advice for your weaning 6-12 month old baby. From six months it is important to move on with texture and offer finger food to your baby. Your baby is more accepting of new foods at this time and offering variety at this stage will ensure your baby will go through the weaning stages with ease.
Starting to wean can be a bewildering experience. It takes a little time for them to learn to take food from a spoon and then figure out how to move it from the front of the tongue to the back of the mouth. I always recommend to start weaning from 5 ½ months. This will give your little one time to get used to the idea of food before they are introduced to a wider variety from 6 months onward.
We've put together a list of weaning recipes to support our Mummy Cooks stage 1 weaning guide. We refer to stage 1 as the first 14 days of weaning your baby and involves introducing runny purées to your baby. We recommend starting weaning any time after five months so that you are well set-up to introduce lots of variety and texture from six months.
