Just as I am changing my own eating habits, Sophie is having a change as well! My baby is ready for more than just milk. I had been thinking about weaning for a while and as Sophie's bottles got bigger and bigger and she began to demand feeding more often I began to worry as I had no idea what I was supposed to do!
I was lucky enough to get some great information from Victoria Plum about baby led weaning but wasn't sure Sophie would make it to 6 months on milk alone! The health visitors promote the 'no food till 6 months' policy so I have become part of an underground baby feeding gang of renegade mums!
Well nearly! At 18 weeks Sophie had her first few spoonfuls of baby rice, she loved it so much I had to make her more! After a few days I consulted Anabelle Karmel made her some baby purees to try some different tastes.
So far she likes everything except parsnip. Her favourite food, though, Is anything Daddy is eating! Yesterday I found them sitting on the floor sharing a banana!
I'll be spending the weekend cooking!
Lots of Love
