did anybody stick to these guidelines or did you wean before that?

I got to 23 weeks so not too far off the guidelines.

We started weaning at 26 weeks, DD is now 32 weeks and is only now really starting to get into solids.

dd1 was 27 weeks
dd2 was 26 weeks
dd3 was 26 weeks

and even then its not much food for those first few weeks

dd1 about 18 weeks but that was in my pre MN days and I fell for the baby clinic pressure, wish I'd waited now.

dd2 just started at 24 weeks, she's definitely ready and is loving her food already.

27 weeks, I think. And oh lord the mess, and having to remember to get something ready for her dinner... I love weaning her, but am glad I waited!

ds was 15 weeks (now 3.5)

He was big when he was born and grabbed a chicken sandwich off my plate and stuffed it in his mouth...

am expecting ds2 and will wait to see how we go with him

24 weeks for dd, shes 28 weeks now and loving every mouthful!
I only did it a couple of weeks early so she would be on the way by the time I went back to work.

dd1 was nearly 8 months
dd2 - 6 months
ds - 6.5 months

all bf until they self weaned.

i weaned all mine from about 4/5 months and they all took to it very well no problems with any milk or weaning feeds, they are now 9, 5, 2.5 and 1.3 yrs and fit and healthy, i think you have to do what you think is right for you and your child they are only guidelines after all

DS was 25 weeks

It was a struggle but we mannaged to keep exclusive b.feeding untill 6months for our dd. Was a struggle because mum, sister, mother in law, and granny all weaned their babbies at 4 months and gave us loads of hassle and pressure to wean earlier.

bristols Mon 13-Aug-07 19:20:30

Yes, I waited until 6 months. It was something that was really important to me. DS was well and truly ready for it and took to it like a duck to water. I enjoyed the whole thing.

BROOKEQUIN Mon 13-Aug-07 19:25:26

I THINK YOU ARE ALL REALLY GOOD I WOULD HAVE REALLY STUGGLED TO WAIT UNTIL 6 MTHS WITH MY OLDER CHILDREN BUT THEN THE GUIDELINES WERE 16 WEEKS

ramade Mon 13-Aug-07 19:37:10

BROOKWIN, there is a bit in the Annabel Karmel (top 100 baby purees) about pre term weaning. Says: its advised that preterm babies intoduced to solids between 4 an 7 months.

ramade Mon 13-Aug-07 19:38:52
