Hellosmile my dd is coming up to 6 months and this may sound like a silly question (I'm new to this parenting businesswink) but literally where do I start when it comes to giving her a little bit of solids each day? Do I give her baby rice? And if so how many times a day? Etc. Someone told me not to give baby rice as it has no nutritional values? I guess I'd just really like your experiences and what you started your little ones on

Mines approaching the 6 month mark too.
I'm planning on baby led weaning - bought this from Amazon yesterday-https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/0091923808/ref=yoiii_img?ie=UTF8&psc=1
gives lots of useful help & info about where to start, thinking behind etc - all pretty basic & common sense but as a FTM I feel more confident.
I'm thinking I'll give my LO some broccoli, carrot & poss fruit for their first meal! smile

Dc3 is coming up to 5 months. I think I'll start him soon. I can't really remember what I started them on. I think it was banana and baby porridge for the first couple of days then puréed carrot Apple pear squash parsnip etc. When they are used to that I introduce sticks of fruit or veg or toast for them to gnaw on while I spoon feed too. I've always had a pretty laid back approach and it's always gone well. I think i started the first meals at 5pm before the bedtime milk feed. But i can't remember for sure! It was such a big deal to me at the time but I've forgotten already!!
