My DS is 3months and ff. A few of my friends have had babies around the same time and seem to be weaning already. (not sure if they were advised to by any healthcare professional). I keep reading about weaning and not to start until baby is 6 months but then other people have said 16/17 weeks. I am now confused about when to start with DS, obviously not now but time is going by so quickly it won't be long until I could potentially start to wean. So when should I start? When did you start? And how? Bit confused with the whole babyrice, purees etc Any advise would be great, thanks
DD was sitting independently, trying to grab food, showing a real interest in what I was eating and adored her first tiny taste of fruit purée. I just gave her a little bit on the end of a spoon and she loved it! Initially I just gave her a tiny taste of food each day. Sometimes porridge or fruit or even just puréed veg. She was probably 6 months by the time I replaced any milk feeds with food.
Some of my friends waited til 6 months and did baby led weaning. I really think it comes down to your baby.
