So my baby is turning 6 months in a weeks time he has been having baby porridge since a few weeks once a day but what else do I start him on now and how often? Like fruit and veg purees how often should I give it to him ? Any suggestions guys

I started my son on porridge then I moved to the Heinz powdered meals. Basically a savoury porridge!

Then when he got used to the taste of something savoury I introduced puréed root veg. I then brought in green veg a few weeks later. Apparently root veg is gentler on the digestive system.

I give the odd jar or pouch too just so he has variety!

Hope this helps.

Sorry should have also said that I give porridge as a breakfast then the veg as dinner. I haven't given lunch yet. I'll introduce lunch when I feel he is looking for it.

look up baby led weaning much easier but whats important with any weaning method offer lots of different veg

Pretty much whatever you are having as long as no honey or salt. Mine had whole bits of broccoli and carrot on day one then I can't remember with DC1 but DC2 had roast dinner on day 2. Just bits and bobs of various things.

Rissottos were always popular.

I bought a couple of weaning books by Annabel Karmel. Her books have lots of great ideas. Another useful book for later on is “What Mummy Makes” by Rebecca Wilson.

I first gave him steamed brocolli, cauliflower and carrots then went from there. I usually gave him bits of what we were eating which made everything very easy. I never did purees or porridge or anything but I just thought I'd show a different way if you weren't set on purees. Good luck.

Advice is to give them 1 food at a time so you can keep an eye on allergies. So say start with just broccoli day 1, then carrot day 2, then you could do broccoli & carrot together day 3 etc.
