If you’ve been reading my previous posts or following me for some time you know I’m not an advocate of anything specific or think one type of parenting, feeding, weaning, etc. Is better then the next I like to take the merits of every approach and apply them as best I can to my families lifestyle. Nothing extreme and as I mentioned previously no terrorist parenting allowed!!
After a week’s blissful staycation in Dingle it’s the topic on a lot of my followers lips. I post plenty on my stories so you saw us eating out allot and it thankfully was very successful. For me to describe an eatery as child friendly, it means I’ve had a successful meal there with my boys. By successful it must involve me eating a full meal at a normal pace, a meal I consciously ordered and I’m not leaving the building sweating, crying or embarrassed.
Baby rice has traditionally been the first choice for parents to start their transition onto solids but baby rice is highly processed and very high in carbohydrates. It’s much more beneficial to start weaning with very small amounts of naturally nutritious foods.
Weaning Your Baby onto Solid Foods
Weaning means gradually introducing a range of solid foods to your baby until they are eating the same food as the rest of your family. As your baby eats more solids, they will want less milk. An important part of weaning is to develop muscles associated with oromotor skills and speech. It also helps with the development of hand to mouth coordination.
Food Glorious Food!!! None of my personal weaning post are going to be advising you on what age, when you should start or what you should be weaning your child. Weaning is totally up to you I’ve two children to worrie about and thats plenty for me to be making decisions for. You decide for your own.
Orange warnings, red warnings, rain, hail, snow blizzards, feed the birds, save the water, pray for heating, find the food and lose your mind. The week was a mixed bag to say the least.
Following on from my last piece which was a list of my lotions and potions for the boys that I won’t live without. This piece gives handy parent hacks in using them to there best and getting around potential battles with the toddlers! Lets face it when it comes to parenting there’s always a battle worth avoiding 😛
