We’ve been reaching a new baby milestone with Raspy recently and that is his weaning journey. To be honest it’s been a bit of a flop. I think I got a bit over-excited and thought that Jaspy would be too but in reality he just wasn’t fussed.
I didn’t read any books. I didn’t research online (very unlike me I know!). I didn’t even ask any other mums. I must have been having a moment of madness haha
All I knew was he’d need something quite bland and smooth. I later read in my Gina Ford book about giving the first solids at night time and giving something high in protein, which I will take into account as of now … I promise!
So we started with a banana on the 14th August. I was eating one and let him suck on a tiny piece. His face scrunched up but he reached for it again … a good start, until I gave it to him a second time and he was completely uninterested.
I then found some farley’s rusks in my cupboard from Rhys and decided to mix one of them with his formula milk. The same happened again, he liked it the first time around and then the second time – not fussed!
This then happened with an Ella’s Kitchen ‘The red one’, Heinz breakfast fruity porridge and Bebevita fruity breakfast porridge.
The Bebevita porridge did prove to be a bit more of a winner which he has after his morning bottle but with moving house and Jaspy teething, our whole routine has just gone out of the window.
So from now on I’m going to do it properly. I’m going to get a book (recommendations welcome) and make sure that what I’m giving him is the best, and in the best way!
Here are some snaps I just love!
How was/is your weaning journey?
Thanks for reading xx
