Weaning update – Week 12…

Its just crazy that another 2 weeks has passed and Freddie has now been eating solids for 12 weeks, where has that time gone. Freddie is so good with food now and he absolutely loves it, he is a piggy and likes everything with give him apart bananas.

I have introduced so many new foods in the last 2 weeks just because Freddie is now eating more lumpy foods and a lot more finger foods. We were mainly using the spoon-fed method of weaning because i didn’t think Freddie at 4 months would eat much if i just left him to pick at foods, however more recently we have been enjoying the baby-led method a lot more.

I still feed Freddie his porridge in the morning and mostly a jar of food then fruit at lunch time, however at tea time i just give Freddie what i have made for tea or some peanut butter on toast or a selection of finger foods and he loves it.

Freddie is now only having 4 bottles a day, apposed to his 5 bottles and we have also cut his total milk intake to around 28oz instead of 40oz.

Our routine goes a little something like

  • 7:00am – 8oz milk
  • 8:30am – Breakfast, Porridge and some fruit
  • 11:00am – 6oz milk
  • 12:00pm – Lunch, small jar of food & half a small jar of fruit
  • 2:00pm – Snack, Vegetable crisps or wafer
  • 3:30pm – 6oz milk
  • 4:30pm – Tea, what were having or finger food
  • 7:00pm – 8oz milk

Freddie can now not only drink from his sippy cup but can also drink through a straw, i was so proud of him when he learnt to do this as i know some 1 year old’s that cant do that yet (not that its a bad thing,i i was just surprised how early he managed it).

I think this will be the last weaning update i am going to record just because Freddie is now pretty much eating most foods and in the up coming weeks it will just be a case of introducing more flavors.

I am unbelievably happy with our weaning journey, Freddie has been brilliant. I hope if you have just started your weaning journey that it goes well and if you haven’t yet started good luck it is a really enjoyable but messy time.

Much loveage Loz x
