What My 6 Month Old Baby Eats in a Day

Hi everyone! Following on from my previous two posts here and here all about preparing babies first foods, I thought it would be good to share what Baby Jasper eats in a day now that he is 6 months old. From the previous posts you will now that he has been weaning on to solid food since he was just older than 4 months. I now offer him 3 meals a day with milk on demand as well. It can be a bit hit and miss with how much he eats each time, sometimes all and sometimes nothing and sometimes just the finger food or just the mashed food! I hope you find it interesting seeing what he eats on a typical day.

10 Yummy First Food Ideas For Babies

Hi Everyone, following on from my last post about preparing Baby Jasper’s first foods, I thought I would share the first 10 foods that he tried. I did some reading and I decided I would like to do mostly ‘veg first weaning’ so that hopefully he would love his vegetables. Whilst reading I found that there is some research that concluded the earlier vegetables are given to babies during weaning the more likely they are to accept and like them. I also found out when doing my research that babies are generally born with a sweet tooth because their milk is classed as a sweet food, which I thought was interesting. So below is the order I introduced Jasper’s 10 first foods, how long I waited before introducing new flavours and his verdict on the tastes!
