I've stared weaning and finding it confusing when to feed the puree and when to feed the milk. Do we do the wean feed inbetween a bottle, eg give half a bottle, feed carrot purée then give the rest of the bottle. Or are you meant to give the bottle first, wait an hour and give the purée?

I'm currently on two feeds, doing breakfast and dinner feed. I do want to go onto do BLW and don't know when to start introducing the solid food..

Would be great to hear what others are doing as am totally confused!! And there isn't much help out there from HVs!

Thank you!

What age is your baby? I gave food a while after a milk and gave finger foods from 6 months alongside meals. Giving finger foods alongside puree is traditional weaning. Giving only finger foods is BLW

Dementedpixie. I totally forgot to say my little one is six months old. How long did you go between feeding a bottle and feeding purée?

I tended to give milk at 7am, 11am, 3pm, 7pm and food at 8am, 12pm, 5pm (once we made it to 3 meals)

Thanks dementedpixie. How much milk was baby taking on each feed?

It was so long ago I can't remember. I just gave however much they wanted. From 6 months a minimum of 20oz is recommended (They can take more if they want it)
