Post subject: When To Start Weaning
I'm a little confused lol. My daughter is three months old and my health advisor is coming to talk to me about starting to wean her in a couple of weeks. However, my friend started weaning her baby at 4 months but other friends did not start to wean until 6 months.
Just wondered when other Mums thought it would be appropriate to start weaning?

I started giving Kaitlin bits of rice and baby cereal when she was about 15 weeks (she's 17 weeks now), but she got quite bad tummy ache. This morning I gave her rusk mashed up with 3ozs of milk, and the other 3ozs in a bottle, she had it at 9am and had 3ozs at 12.30, and didnt have anything then until nearly 5pm! Ive given her another rusk with milk at 6pm so fingers crossed she sleeps. I was hopin to wait until 6 months, but she's really been showing an interest in my food!! Whenever I am eating, she is staring at it, and trying to get her hands on my plate. I think when this happens, they are defo ready for food!
