Post subject: Weaning
Hi everyone,
I had my baby Elizabeth at 34 weeks - she is now 12 weeks old - I thought that as she was early that I pently off time to think about weaning onto food but I have been told that I should start at 18 weeks - which seems strange....
What have others been told and what are your experiences off weaning a premature baby....?

Many Thanks
Linda

My Aimee was born at 34 weeks, we started weaning when she was 5 months and she took to it no problem at all, she still loves her grub

Good luck xx

Hi

Alfie was born at 34+6, I started weaning him at 14 weeks (9 weeks adjusted). Makes me feel bad if I think about it, but he loves it, and is getting on really well. Now on 2 meals and 3 bottles a day, sleeps from 7 till 7.
