My Top 5 Weaning Tips

My Top 5 Weaning Tips
Starting solid foods with your baby is a big milestone and it's natural to feel nervous about it. While it can be complicated and overwhelming, your baby's weaning phase is a super exciting time and can be enjoyed by everyone involved.
Here are my top 5 weaning tips for new parents:
1. Keep Your Meals Adaptable

Choose recipes that can be consumed by the whole family and easily adapted for baby. E.g. cook without salt and sugar and only add these for the rest of the family (after you've set aside baby's portions!) This will save you time and money - it'll also prevent food waste! Check out our Baby & Family Recipe Book for plenty of family recipes that can be adapted for your weaning baby


2. Any Meal Can Be A Finger Food

Finger Foods don't have to be made as a completely separate option. Any meal can be simply adapted, just chop or shred foods as needed to make them easier to grasp for baby. Why not try my Roasted Sweet Potato and Cinnamon Fingers?


3. Let Your Child Get Messy!

Allowing your child to lead the way and find enjoyment in their mealtimes will help them develop healthy eating habits and avoid fussy eating!


4. Be Patient

Remember every baby's weaning journey is different! Give your baby plenty of time to get the hang of feeding themselves and eating solids. Their weaning journey is an exciting time and should be enjoyed, not rushed.


5. Have the Right Equipment

Ensuring that you have the right weaning equipment will help make your baby's weaning journey seamless and hassle-free! Having the correct spoons, bowls, pots and teethers will make the whole process a lot easier. Check out our Weaning Essentials Product Range!
