Oh Id be very interested too - just to file that info away for future reference! My cousin weaned their baby onto solids but only gave him mashed veg for ages as they wanted to keep away from jars. Eventually we wouldnt eat the veg so they tried jars which worked for a while but now hes so fussy he wont eat anything! I want to avoid that if I can!

hey hun a couple of my friends went through the same thing as you and didn't know when to start weaning or what to give their baby to eat. They found a book written by an author called Annabel Karmel extremely useful. she also has a website so maybe have a look at that as there is some good advice on it about what to wean baby onto and how to deal with fussy eaters website is www.annabelkarmel.com hope this helps as my friends found her recipes and advice great...

Well I was adviced to get that anabel karamel book as well!!! I started him on carrots and baby rice, pouched pear, banana, just giving him veg and fruit no meats yet! PHN said that I was doing a right thing by introducing him different food every few days and on my god he loves it!!! :happydance

I started jack on baby rice today and he loved it, he is 3months and a week today so its a little early but he took to it really well, no funny faces, puking, spitting it up again, he just gulped it down and kept looking for more. so proud, will keep him on the rice for a few days and try some spuds, carrots, pears, apple and so on. no meat until 6 months or so.
