That time has come around for us and I’ve been thinking about weaning for the past few weeks
In recent years the recommended age to introduce weaning has increased to 6 months. The NHS website says:
‘Research shows that babies need nothing but breastmilk or infant formula for the first six months of life. This gives a baby’s digestive system time to develop so that they cope fully with solid foods.’

After reading Kerry’s post over at
it’s made me think I should jump straight into baby led.

With this in mind I’ve taken advantage of supermarket ‘baby events’ and have stocked up on some basic weaning essentials from Tommee Tippee as I am a fan of the brand (future post on that coming soon!).
Cute little first cup!
Handy pots for 'mush' or finger foods on the go.
Beaker for when we move on to 'no handles'
'Shatterproof'' gets my approval! I love the stars, so cute.
I also have some of the Tommee Tippee Explora spoons but left them at my parents.
Sloppy mush stuff!
I would love to hear your recommendations on any weaning books!
How old was your baby when you started weaning? What products would you recommend?
