    Are you doing traditional weaning or baby led? For traditional I've heard annabel karmel's books are good (I think that's her name) if you're doing baby led then I liked Gill rapleys baby led weaning cook book x

    Baby led weaning waits until baby is 6 months old and is given food that isn't puréed, just food exactly as we would eat it and isn't spoon fed, just allowed to get on with it themselves. Traditional weaning is puréed food that is spoon fed to baby and ages vary from parent to parent.

    I've never given Jack food from a jar, always cooked my own food for him, first of all I started with any veggies boiled up & blended with either potato or sweet potato. I also stewed apples, pears, blueberries, raspberries (need to seive out the seeds), mango etc and blended it to make my own fruit mixtures. Then I froze them in ice cube trays and transfered the cubes to freezer bags when frozen. Now Jack's 6.5mths he eats meat, fish & dairy etc and I still do the same as before. When he's 7mths i'm going to introduce slightly lumpier meals to him as well as finger foods. I always give him some of what we have on his tray but so far he's only poked at it, not eaten any of it. He enjoys sucking on grapes, tangerines, carrot and parsnip if we help him x
