I've been weaning my 24 week old for just over a month now and have stuck to 2 meals a day - breakfast and tea - of baby rice and/or fruit and/or veg purees. I have done every combination I can think of lots of times and still have plenty of cubes of the stuff in the freezer to last the next few weeks. I have found this stage to be quite straight forward and have felt quite confident introducing new fruit and veg as it all seemed quite 'safe'. Basically, I wondering where to go next? She has a very good appetite and will eat at least 5 ice cubes worth at each meal, sometimes with a couple more or some mashed banana as a pudding at teatime. She has water out of a sippy cup, altho most of it ends up down her front! The Health Visitors seem quite unhelpful, in that they just say that she can have 'anything' from 6 months, but I have been going so slowly I feel that I should introduce the other food groups slowly too but I'm not sure how to go about it. My intention is to start her on lunch in a couple of weeks and for that to be finger food, probably whatever I'm eating so toast, bagels, pasta, etc.maybe with some kind of cheese spread or sauce. But is it a bad idea to introduce two new foods at one lunchtime? Should I do dairy for a week or so before we move on to starchy foods? And what about protein?! I'm a bit confused! Any help gratefully received!
