Start with one meal a day I used to do lunch time, baby rice for a few days while he gets used to the texture, then one by one add a mashed/blended fruit or veggie, that way if he has a reaction you know what it is that's caused it. Then take out the baby rice n start mixing ur fruit n veggies eg parsnip and carrot or banana and pear. I used to make ice cube trays full of broccoli, parsnip, sweet potato, apples and pear etc and freeze them, much cheaper and then all you have to do is reheat. And if u wana mix with meat just cook the meat and add an ice cube of whichever veggies u choose. Good luck! i weaned my first at 12 weeks and she loved it, Lexie is 13 weeks tomoz but nowhere near ready yet x

Ice cube trays are great for saving on having tupperware everywhere which is very annoying!!
I found the Annabel karmel first book really useful for the lists of first foods and when to introduce second meals etc (after a couple of weeks) then third meal a few weeks after that. And mainly fruit and veg purees but then gives good ideas for mixing up veg etc and then when to introduce things like cheese and pasta.
