My DD will be weaning in a few weeks.. She is currently BF & has a Dairy allergy (I have to be completly dairy free). We discovered this after she has awfull silent reflux... after being on lots of meds,& none of them working.. consultant advised me to cut out milk products.... BINGO.. she was better!!

Anyway.... When I do wean her.. what book do you think is good for recipe idea's & what to give & when ??

Thank you

recommended age to start weaning is 26wks

I never went a bundle on 'recipes' and just gave dd bits of what we were eating - toast, fruit and veg sticks (cooked for hard stuff)

Starting with finger food like this is often called 'baby led weaning' as they control what they pick up and what goes in!

I think for that kind of thing you'd be better off getting recipes off the internet, and only printing them when you are sure she likes them.

At that age it's mostly simple purées anyway - ie one or two veg.

I have a fairly untouched annabel Karmel book but there is loads on the web.

if you look there are quite a few dairy free recipes, there, and in the recipes section of the forum.

would highly recommend optimum nutrition for babies by lucy burney ooks&qid=1249925396&sr=8-1\

I have a slight dairy intolerance and my sister is a coeliac so I had to be careful because of the family history when weaning my little one - he's now 8 months and is doing really well. The book caters for both wheat free and diary free diets
