I asked on Twitter if anyone had any blog post requests... the lovely Sarah asked for a weaning update so here it is.
Paige is now almost 8 months. Weaning is going well but we have had our troubles. At the very beginning Paige was really good. She opened her mouth and would eat the food. She then had toast and would feed herself very well. I wouldn't force her when spoon feeding but she would only eat about one or two spoons and then wouldn't open her mouth. I thought we would go at her pace and just take it easy. We got up to three meals a day all be it only a couple of spoons at a time. I left it like that for a while as I thought we could just let her appetite grow.
Then when Paige was teething badly at 6 months old and got ill at Christmas she didn't want food at all, just milk. Again I didn't force her and it seems to have paid off. Now she loves food! She will open her mouth and have a decent meal, she still loves feeding herself and has a few different finger food but her favourite is still toast. I will be doing a separate post on fingers foods so look out for that!
She is on two meals at the moment but it won't be long before she is back on three. She loves her milk still and has around 28/30oz a day.
Thanks for reading,
