Thomas is now 23 weeks old. I started weaning him at 22 weeks old. He started on homemade carrot puree which he seemed to enjoy. I next tried him on homemade Swede puree. He liked this too. However, this was not filling him up. He was still drinking milk like it was going out of fashion and had started waking up again in the night too.
As he seemed hungrier in the morning, on the advice of a fellow Mum I tried him on some Plum Baby Apricot and Banana Oaty Porridge which he loved as you can see from the picture below. It also filled him up too and he went straight back to sleeping through the night. I will trying him on their Prune, Peach and Baby Rice Breakfast.
This week we have now added lunch into the equation and he loves that too. I am giving him some homemade purée but I am also using of the Ella’s Kitchen ones too. They are very easy to use especially when out and about as you can squeeze them straight out on to the spoon. Thomas seems to love them too! I try everything Thomas eats as I think it is important that he should only eat something that I would eat.
His milk consumption has reduced slightly but he is still having 5 or 6 bottles a day. I have no idea when milk consumption is supposed to drop with weaning but am hoping its soon as would like to just give him two big bottles a day, one in the morning and one in the evening.
If you have any advice or tips about weaning, please let me know 🙂
