    Why did you decide to start weaning so early?

    Aw Jazz, of course you're not doing something wrong! What age is she now, I'm on my phone so can't see tickers.
    Have you looked at the anabel karmel website? You can buy her books which have loads of recipes in it!

    Yeah I'd look online for recipes. Can you not blend up whatever you eat? Without salt? X

    I waited until 6 months so I'm not 100% certain and don't wanna give bad advice. I'd look at annabel karmel's site too as I've heard that she's good for tw x

    Sorry hun, I looked at your post I thought baby was 12 weeks and you were asking what to give! My thoughts were whoever advised you to wean should have advised you what to give (I am on my phone so can't see sigs either).

    With Georgie I tend to have a cooking day. I always steam lots of carrot as it's sweet and the basis of most of her foods. I tend to add butternut squash, swead, parsnip, sweet potato, broccoli, sprouts whatever I have in really.
    I also do apple and pear and freeze.

    I tend to mix sweet with savory to just to give a different taste.

    She also has finger food. I have to be careful with what else I give her as she was dairy sensitive so no butter cheese etc. I am still not eating dairy because of it.

    i'd reccommend the annabel karmel book as well. some of the recipes are gorgeous for adults too and she goes through in her book what you can and can't have.

    i just got mine off amazon and it was a bit reduced.

    poor wee thing and her reflux, its horrible to see them in pain.

    Oh gosh you must have gotten a scare :(

    It's only a few weeks till you're able to introduce meat, fish etc.

    Hope the AK website gives you some ideas. My mum has printed a few off for me recently.

    Good luck with it all and hope the appointment goes ok
