My daughter was amazing to wean I think I enjoyed it more than her. She loved everything she was given and would always clean the bowl. I made everything from scratch, freeze it down and honestly enjoyed doing it.
Then I had my son, he refused everything I gave him. Spat everything that was put in this mouth back out at me talk about disheartening, i put all that effort in preparing his meal just to get it litterly thrown back in my face . Every meal time was a battle. I tried everything from distraction, airplanes to begging but nothing worked. The only thing I would assure he would eat was banabix (banana flavoured weetabix) and he couldn’t eat that three times a day ! But then at about 18months we had a urecka moment he just woke up and started eating ! Granted meal times are now messier than ever as I am no longer aloud to help feed him and bless him he insists on using a spoon for EVERYTHING. He now eats most things but his favourites are pasta, bakes beans and stil his banabix.
Enough of my ramblings for now I just thought I’d share how different my children were / are and how I have had to very different experiences regarding weaning.
I’ll write up a tips and tricks list this week as I hope it will help any new mum’s or mums struggling like I was with my son.
