Ive been told that my baby will be ok on this just a small amount b4 bed, i have tried to give it to him and he spits it out, i wasent sure at first to give it to him but my mother in law says she did it for all of her lads who are healthu and that he will sleep all night, he dident sleep last night, but im moving onto mashed orange this weeks as he is nearly 7 weeks old and she said it will be fine.
What else should I try i want him fully weaned ny 4 months as they are more contented.
Thanks x Ps this is number 5 baby, the others were started at 3 months but this one is a hungry boy!

Is this real?
Are you from Bounty?

Early weaning can cause brain impairment and severe inability to spell.

sorry I really hope you're not for real tbh . Solids so young can cause all sorts of health problems the least of which is that they spit it out (choking, allergies, malnutrition, trigger for asthma, excema, bowel problems, link to obesity...). Latest WHO guidelines suggest 6 months as an optimum and there is absolutely no proof that any earlier makes for a mroe settled baby.

Great arguement that is hmm So if 10 people all played russian roulette and were ok does that mean you'd try it too? <shakes head>

oh i thought it was ok, have u got any info i could read from a proper site?

geordieminx Fri 10-Oct-08 15:23:42

WTF would you want to wean a baby at 6 weeks??? You do realise that you could harm your baby - not just long term risk but short term immediate risks such as choking. At 6 weeks a baby cant even support its own head properly why the fuck would you want to feed him pureed orange??

Silly silly girl...Oh and if you had wanted a baby that slept through at 6 weeks you should have got a kitten. hmm

Start here.

Brangelina Fri 10-Oct-08 15:25:00

it is obvious from everything you read that it is not ok!!

seriously, if you had five, you would know. I have five, I know.....I knew it from my first.

<<code word this week?? fanjo, bumsex......I cannae rememberblush>>

The OP is trying to break as many MN rules as possible in one go...

A 'mummy' name
Text speak
Poor punctuation
Early weaning
Just need a 'hun' and we have a full set grin

the NHS weaning leaflets clearly state solid foods are not to be introduced before around 26 weeks

citrus fruits are very , very acidic and bad for such a young baby

you can cause damage to your baby by weaning this early

just offer milk, milk and more milk and never ever add food or rusk to the bottle, apart from the risk of choking , it can overload and damage teh kidneys.

have a look at the NHS, WHO or DoH information on weaning or search the archives on here

but he does seem to like it, i dont think you need to be so rude, what do u know? I was only asking for advice

gingerninja Fri 10-Oct-08 15:27:14

hmm can not be real.

CharCharBaGOOOOOOORE Fri 10-Oct-08 15:27:52

If he likes it then why is he spitting it out?

mummyof5ok Fri 10-Oct-08 15:28:02

but you cannot really truly be a mum of five, cos otherwise you would KNOW that this is wrong.
