Don’t hesitate to feed babies food from different cuisines - minus the salt and chilli - they may well surprise you with what they’ll try. My toddler started off eating a greater variety than his older siblings .

Carrot and banana puree stain 🙈

Babies can be a bit fussy so my advice is to try with many different foods and tastes. It takes a while to get right for your baby. I mash all kind of vegetables and fruits to allow him have variety.

Freeze then blitz banana with rasberrys for sugar free natural 'ice cream'

Don't worry if it seems your baby doesn't like the taste of something new. Keep trying! This was Leon's first taste of potato but now he loves it!

Try weaning when the baby isn’t absolutely starving. Once my little one got too hungry he refused food and only wanted his bottle so I’ve learned to time it properly!
oh and carrots stain both faces and clothes and so do any pasta/tomato baby foods! 😭😭

Take it at your baby's pace, don't rush them into food if they aren't ready. Every baby is different and food is mainly for fun before they are 1 so enjoy it! (Be prepared from them stealing your food! Here is Isla stealing Mummy's Panini!)

I love HiPP organic because you can be sure of the quality from a recommended brand. I also used to love cooking and making my own without salt etc and then freezing into ice cube containers and then labelling. I also think a investment in a tiny little saucepan is a definite yes. I do love jar food when on the go travelling for ease of use.

Take your time with your baby and enjoy it! Let your baby experience different tastes, keep trying if he or she doesn't like it!

Go at your babies pace and take no notice of what other new mums tell you their baby is doing - this applies to everything - not just weaning!

My best advice is to try and not get stressed by it. Do it Little by little and if your baby just wants a bottle don’t worry. We spent ages preparing puréed food only for it to be refused which was frustrating. However in the end after time and patience we got there!

Don't give up and try a wide variety of fresh, unsalted foods. Fruit and veg is great.

I used to batch cook for my daughter and freeze into little containers it was so much easier as a working parent

My daughter took to baby rice very quickly but we soon discovered she was more sweet than savoury so used to mix up Avocado and Banana, which she loved.

Take it slowly and don't panic if it takes longer than you anticipated, it will happen eventually, it is just something that cannot be rushed.

Patience and persistence was key we had one stubborn little man on our hands. managed to mix veggies with fruit and pureed them. Slowly he took to it. Variety helped.

If first you dont succeed try and try again.
Literally... if they dont like the taste it can take at least 10+ times to actually like something. i have had friends be adamant after one try of a flavour or texture and say they dont like this or that and not try again. This isnt how it works! Keep trying it takes a lil while for them to start to like a flavour
