Harry is now 7 months old and we have been weaning for around 6 weeks now. Here is how we are getting on.
I started just before 6 months due to his bad reflux and I’m pleased to report it’s worked as we have now cut back on his medicines.
As I did with Emmy I started out by making home made purees and had high intentions of continuing down this route, however I’ve been foiled by a 3 year old!
With a first child you have all the time in the world to sterilise, cook, puree, label and freeze. Batch cooking and stocking up. However throw a 3 year old into the mix, play dates, pre-school, washing, cleaning and playing and cooking more than one meal a day takes a back step.
Harry has now had more jars of store brought food than Emmy ever has, he now eats what we eat for dinner, with a few exceptions and small variations and he LOVES to feed himself.
This time around I’m far more relaxed and no longer stick to the rules, often finding a biscuit in his hand thanks to Emmy.
He is happy and thriving and eats healthily too so I won’t complain.
