I can’t believe enough time has passed for me to be saying this (Isla will be 6months old next week and I genuinely don’t know how that’s happened!) but we’ve started our weaning journey!!!
As with everything in this thing called motherhood, I don’t have a scooby doo what I’m doing and am just trying to relax and go with the flow. I think we’ll probably do a mixture of baby lead weaning and purees – until we figure out what works best for us.
The good news is I definitely don’t think I’m going to have any issues getting my little lady on to solids… she seems to like food just as much as her mama does!!
I got a little silicone feeder off amazon which has been an absolute god send!! You literally just pop a bit of whatever food you want in the silicone bit and then give it to them! It has tiny holes in so they can get the flavour and mush it up to swallow without the worry of them choking on any pieces that break off!
As well as that we’ve introduced some banana porridge to Isla’s diet which she loves!! She mastered using a spoon as soon as she realised there was food on it 😂😂😂 The only thing that’s been a struggle is she screams when she’s finished it all – so greedy!!!
So fat Isla has tried broccoli, carrots, sweet potatoes, mash potato, cabbage, courgette, parsnip, red pepper, cherry tomato, cucumber, avocado, blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, banana, clementine, lemon (I couldn’t resist… bad mummy!) and her favourite – watermelon!! She’s liked EVERYTHING so far (not sure how much lemon she’d eat… wasn’t cruel enough to find out 😂)
I did also give her a finger sized piece of toast… but my heart couldn’t take watching her try to ram it in her mouth!! I got too scared of her choking and took it off her to put in the feeder instead (I know, I’m a wimp… I’ll keep trying!!)
