Dear Daisy, It is your first day at school...

Daisy's weaning journal #1

We have started weaning Daisy. Yes it could be seen as a little early but like I've said before I think she's ready to try things and get used to different textures, tastes and actually using something like a spoon to feed herself/ or me (her servant!) to feed her. 

I've been trying baby porridge, Heinz baby rusk (mixed with breast milk) and baby rice for a few weeks now. Porridge is a no no and after trying it I can't blame her, the variety we tried was very artificial tasting so I'm not into that really, crossed off the list and wanged into the bin! Just like her mum her favorite is rusk, who doesn't love a biscuit? I'm trying not to use baby rice really as it's very bland and smooth and other than to fill her tiny tummy it's not teaching her much other than how to he fed with a spoon, it's not exactly interesting. 

The first real food we've tried is butternut squash, and I've managed to freeze a few mini portions for the next few weeks so we can try it every few days. It seems to be a success! But then I guess it's pretty sweet and I blended it nice and smooth so what's not to like? Except the flipping stains on her lovely pretty bibs :(

Another issue I have is if she comes across a little lump (and I mean miniscule!) she makes herself sick, does this pass with time?!?! It's far too messy to happen every time! (Bleurghh!)

So to start weaning properly I made a few purchases from Tesco to start us off:

Tommee Tippee storage pots in holder. These can be frozen and microwaved as well as put through the dishwasher- perfect. They are a little on the large side for us at the moment but I figured at least they will last for a fair while on our little food adventure! 

Munchkin spoons. I chose these mainly because of the good value, by far cheaper than any other decent looking spoons on the shelf and I'm a sucker for the bright colours. I must say it's not a brand I know much about though or heard of before this trip. 

Tommee Tippee sippy cup. If you read my blog then you'll know that I'm having a few problems getting Daisy to take milk from a bottle, which could be a problem when it comes to me having to work. I was suggested to try a cup like this and my sister who I was shopping with picked up and recommended this particular model, apparently the non spill actually works and is light enough for baby to hold easy enough. 

I have some other recipes (can you call the puréed squash a recipe?! Haha) up my sleeve to try and make this week and try her with as well as some lovely things I've got in my Nonabox and from Organix to try. Will keep you posted!!! 

Lots of love,
Hayley and Daisy xxx

  1. Eeeek, so exciting!!

    I love Munchkin products (especially because of the bright colours!)

    We've only experimented with a few tastes so far... apple, banana and peas.

    Peas were the biggest hit!

    You should get some cheap plastic bibs for meal times, shame to ruin Daisy's pretty ones.

    1. We have so many bibs, it seemed everyone bought them for us and we've not used them really. She drags her muslin around with her but but you are right shame to ruin them! How did you do the peas? Did you whizz them up???? Xxx
