We have been weaning baby ollie now since 4 months so I thought it was time to write a post on how we are getting on.
When we started him on his first foods I purchased a packet of Ellas Kitchen banana baby rice which he absolutely loved. We gave him a small bowl once a day with his dinner time bottle to start with and then we put this up to dinner and tea.
for another week. From there he then went on to have 3 meals a day which is where we are currently at.
He tends to have a powdered porridge in the morning which can be any variety depending on what is on offer when I do the weekly shop. He will also have a bottle with his breakfast as well and this is a 6oz bottle.
For dinner and tea he has a variety of things but he is now having a main and a dessert! I have powdered meals in as well as jars and again these can be any brand, I pick up loads of different ones for hin to try. For dessert he has either a jar of some sort or a fruity pot.
I have just moved him onto follow on milk as well as of last night and have moved him onto HIPP Organic as have heard alot of really good things about their milk.
In the next few weeks I am hoping to introduce more finger foods and meals that he can eat with the whole family. I am currently looking through Pinterest for recipe ideas. I did pick up some of the Kiddylicious wafers last time I did a shop as they where on offer at Tesco but he doesn’t seem very keen on these at the moment!
He is doing brilliantly at the moment and absolutely loved his food (as does the rest of his family hehe!) I also did a video on how we are getting on. If you would like to take a look please pop over to my YouTube Channel.
We decided to wean Ollie at 4 months as he was always wanting milk but he was sicking alot up so we started him on the porridge and then he didn’t take on so much milk which helped with him sicking loads back up.
I don’t plan to have him on purees for much longer as he is 6 months in a couple of weeks so as I said above I will introduce our meals and get him eating what we do as soon as I can.
I will do an update in a month so I can let you know how we are getting on with introducing other foods.
Thank you for reading.
