Weaning World Forum
We believe every baby and every parent is different and you need to find a way of weaning that works for you.
We also believe that by weaning baby as healthily as possible through early months and into toddlerhood gives them the best start in life.
Get together with other parents and experts online for a friendly chat, impartial advice and general weaning week conversations.
As you start thinking about the exciting new world of weaning, it’s important not to forget that any food you serve needs to be safe. Babies and young children don’t have the same immune system as us adults (or even older children) so we need to make sure we’re extra careful with their little tummies!
Sitting around a table together as a family and enjoying mealtime success is the holy grail that we all want to achieve. When introducing solids, what can you do in order that you avoid stressful mealtimes down the line and create treasured family memories around the dinner table? Catherine Dodd, founder of children’s cutlery company doddl and feeding and swallowing specialist speech therapist Stacey Zimmels from @feedeatspeak have some hints and tips!

Weaning is the process of introducing solid foods into your baby’s diet, alongside their milk requirements.
Experts advice is to not to start offering solids until your baby is around the 6-month mark, unless told otherwise by your health visitor or GP. At this age, their usual milk is still a vital part of their nutrition and should continue to until 12 months at least. Remember every baby is different and you need to trust your instincts on when it is right for your little one.
