We've put together a list of weaning recipes to support our Mummy Cooks stage 1 weaning guide.
Stage 1 consists of the first 14 days of weaning your baby and involves introducing runny purees 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. If you start Stage 1 of weaning earlier than 5 ½ months, just continue with mixed runny purees until your baby is 6 months old.
Stage 1 size pots – 4-6 Month Weaning Pots
Avoid gluten, meat, fish, grains, milk, eggs any lumps and finger food until baby is six months.
Most importantly remember to remain relaxed, as weaning your baby onto solid foods can be daunting!
