I am a first time mummy and my daughter has just turned 6 months old and i started to wean her last week, i have been giving her baby porridge to start with for breakfast and she loves it but i dont know when i should introduce a meal at lunch time then at dinner time? I have read magazines and leaflets but nothing really tells me information on what i am wanting to know
My daughter is 7 months so we started a month ago. I just offered a few spoonfuls of purée to start with at lunchtime, and as I'm doing baby led weaning I just put her in her chair at teatime and let her try things like broccoli, strawberries, breadstick etc.
She's still not on three proper meals a day and hasn't dropped a bottle yet although she doesn't finish her teatime bottle anymore so I imagine it won't be long until she drops that.
Food is for fun usually until they're around one, so just offer a little bit at lunch/tea and follow baby's lead. She'll let you know if she wants more.
