Weaning your baby is a big milestone. It’s an exciting time, but it’s not always plain sailing and you’re bound to have a few issues along the way. We’ll show you how to overcome common weaning problems, from fussy eating to coping with new textures and dealing with mealtime mess.
Does your baby struggle with lumpier textures? Gagging can be frightening, but remember chewing is a skill that takes time to master, and there are things you can do to help her learn.
If your child won’t eat her greens, you’re not alone – but it’s not just veg that toddlers refuse. We look at why fussy eating happens, and offer tricks and tips to help them enjoy a more varied diet.
Fed up of throwing away leftovers, or is slow eating driving you to distraction? We’ll teach you how to clear her plate more quickly. And if food seems to go everywhere except her mouth, here’s how to stay sane through the messy phase.
