Stage 2 weaning starts at around 7 months and is when things really start to get exciting! Gone are the simple purees or sticks of single well cooked veggies. Now it’s all about food adventures, tasting and trying a whole world of flavours. There are nutritional and developmental considerations too as well as balancing food with milk and your baby’s daily routine.
Baby Led Weaning has different set of considerations than traditional spoon weaning and a lot of what you find online isn’t actually correct, so I wanted to put this blog together for you to guide you through when and how to start.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. (Hopefully) your baby will have slept through the night and gone a good 12 hours without food and so needs refuelling. Read on to learn how to make a nutritious weaning breakfast including the important baby nutrients to consider. There are 35 breakfast ideas & recipes for inspiration too!

So you want to have a go at baby led weaning but are not sure how to start? In this blog I am going to give you a list of the best first foods to start with from a safety point of view as well as a nutrition one, with a few tips, tricks and hacks to make get BLW adventures off to a successful start.
Once your baby reaches 6 months of age, their nutritional requirements are much greater. Not only have they started to run out of their important nutrient reserves that they were born with (such as iron), but also as they are growing and developing, their bodies actually need more.
How do you actually start weaning? How you actually give the first meal to your baby? This blog goes through exactly how to do this and how to respond to your baby’s reaction if the first few meals are not going as well as you’d hoped.
The most complex sensory task that your baby has to do in his first year of life is learn how to eat.
There are eight (not five) different senses that coordinate with each other when your baby eats and form connections in his or her brain. Read on to learn what they are and what you can do at home to help develop your baby’s brain.
Sensory Weaning is a new term created by Tidy Tot which involves engaging all of your baby’s senses to encourage his or her learning experience of transitioning from milk to solid foods.
