So bens nearly 6 months and so were going to start weaning This week as he's showing all the signs. What did you start with? im thinking of starting with the veg from our dinner, does that sound about right? So broccoli, carrots, sweet potato (how do you serve these?) and some fruits. Then slowly move onto our food.

Cooked carrot (julienne) from roast dinner! Then just odd bits like that. Plain pasta twirls etc. I did have to start thinking how I cut our veg to make it more suitable, but generally he had what we did, or a variation of. Often I would separate his before a sauce was added etc. Also a good tip is to pop a plate in the fridge so that if you do something hot it will cool down faster

Sticks of cucumber as they are nice and cold on his gums which are bothereing him at the moment. Rice cakes, slices of melon with the skin on for him to get a grip etc

Thanks ladies! Sounds like I've got the right sort of idea. Cuecumber is a great idea as bens gums are really sore. Can I ask which melon you used?

I's 1st meal was dinner & she had 1 of everything that we were eating so she had a strip of grilled chicken, a piece of baby sweetcorn and a piece of long stemed broccoli (all veg was steamed). 2nd meal - breakfast - was banana, papaya & melon. 3rd meal - lunch - was lettuce, cucumber, pepper, pitta bread, gnocchi. & 4th meal - dinner - was sausage, asparagus, carrot, baby sweetcorn, courgette & large pieces of pasta.
With the veg I initially tried to choose veg that was naturally the right shape & either steamed or roasted it but tried not to leave it too soft as it can then fall apart. As for melon I use honeydew, cantaloupe, Charentais or galia (not watermelon).
