I met a woman today who started weaning at 2 months 'cos her daughter was ready'. I had been feeling a bit guilty for starting at 24 weeks. Now I feel absolutely fucking virtuos in comparison.

Why do people do it?

Because they want too.

have you seen the bounty/babycentre weaning threads?
10/11 weeks seems quite common - big baby, milk not satisfying, not sleeping through etc etc

I can sort of understand people doing it at 4 months but 8 weeks!!!

my exp's mum was putting rusks in the bottle from 6 weeks and feeding them solids from 8 weeks. dd is 2o weeks and im only just considering giving her solids. I think i would panic if I had to feed solids to an 8 week old.

I thought you said the other charlotte you were weaning already?

Different people, different decision making i guess.

I find your reaction reassuring having started a thread earlier about my DB and SIL feeding their 13wk old mashed banana and petit filous and deliberately not telling HV.
Nice to know its not just me.

At baby clinic today there was a woman feeding a jar of mush to a tiny baby. I don't know how old the baby was but she couldn't sit up and was reclining in a bouncer so didn't look very old.

It made me feel quite sad seeing such a small baby having food shovelled in.
I know I don't know the circumstances so shouldn't judge but...
