So now Jack is 6 months we have started to wean him. It’s been slow going so far because he doesn’t seem to be really ready. He is ready and is enjoying different foods but he’s not at the point of want 3 meals a day, it’s just a bit here and there. He is completely different to my other 3 children because all of them were ready to be weaned before 6 months (between 4-5 months)
We’re going with a mix of puree fed and BLW (baby led weaning) because that has worked well for us before.
I didn’t really enjoy weaning the other children because I didn’t feel ready to wean them because they felt too young (it’s always us parents that are not ready for the milestones) but with Jack, I feel it’s the right time and because it’s going slowly and not because they’re demanding more food, it’s quite fun.
So far he has tried
- carrots, cauliflower and pea puree
- Spinach, apple and Kale wafer wisp
- Farley’s rusk and milk
I’m looking forward to trying some more finger foods with him soon.
