Early stages of weaning
I can't believe our babies are now at the stage of weaning, where has the months gone? We are all pretty much at the same stage, so I'm hoping to add a new blog every week reporting back on baby J's progress. Week one - baby rice extravaganza! After much umm-ing and ah-ing hubby and I decided to take the plunge and start weaning baby J, he's been avidly watching us eat our dinners for a while now and chewing non stop on his hands, and after giving him a crust of bread which went straight for the mouth [and then back out again after I fished it out] we went for it and mixed him up some baby rice...mmmmmmm. Baby J looked bemused 'what is this white gloop your putting in my mouth?' but he very quickly got the hang of it and was wolfing it down. For the first few tries he closed his eyes and pull a sour tasting experession. We were really impressed how little went everywhere! The past few days have been pretty much the same with the exception of when we tried feeding him when we were out and he was too busy looking around to take it all in!
