hi, im due to become a daddy and cant wait, me and my partner are over the moon. as im a fella im just wandering how genuine cravings are because my lovely lady claims to be craving 'capri suns', i rekon this could be an xcuse to for her to say shes gettin her 5 a day. should i listen to her cravi ngs or are they just a a result of exagerated taste buds. regards baby daddy

As a first time grandmother, renewing my interest in babies this year, I would say just don't worry. Heinz has always been a great help-- variety and ease- my own children now becoming parents themselves still love rusks.
Children often follow by example and to eat together is great--babies love to take from your plate.My daughter loved to do this with cabbage!!!

My third baby decided she didn't want to eat until she was about 8 months old. To all in a similar situation, I would say, don't get too stressed, just keep offering little bits of food each day. Now, she eats perfectly well, and has a completely normal weight.
by krnries 21st May 2007, 10:05am
Wait until baby is showing an interest in food, afterall there is no point forcing food on a baby that isn't up for it.

Heinz Rusks and baby milk are excellent to use up left over milk
by ma6jrp 21st May 2007, 10:04am
From an early age I would always give my baby a spoon to hold when she was eating - she soon learnt how to use it herself that way!
by SAMANTHA789 21st May 2007, 10:03am
I have always tried to make food a non-issue with my daughter as I didn't want a faddy eater growing up! My daughter has always been encouraged to choose what she would like to eat (only ever out of two options though!) and always helps me prepare dinner too. Now two years old, our daughter is generally very good and will eat anything put in front of her - so lets hope she can be a positive role model to our next little one that is on the way!

Baby food doesn't have to be bland I add cinnamon to my porridge and he loves. Also adding mint and basil can liven up vegatable purees
by lilmiss1982 21st May 2007, 10:03am
i have a very hungry baby he is being weaned at 10 weeks check babys bowl movements are the same [watch for constipation] also keep a diary of babys fluid intake this should not decrease by any significant amount if it does stop weaning as baby was satisfied on milk otherwise enjoy introducing baby to new tastes slowly and try to limit sweet foods my baby currently has two meals a day and is doing great please make sure you have full support of your health visitor
by cryothief 21st May 2007, 10:02am
When my son was able to sit up in his highchair, I gave him bits of what we had for tea, while we were eating - a few veggies, bit of potato, etc, and let him play with it. He threw it about, smushed it up, and generally had great fun, but, now he is 13 months, he will happily eat most of these things, as he is used to them.

Avoid sweet biscuits
by kirstralia 21st May 2007, 10:01am
Try to make meals a family affair, let baby see you eat your tea while making mmmm noises then try them with their food, dont try weaning them onto new tastes when they are tired. Also use the Velcro tie bibs rather then pull over ones as food could get trapped in the eye when you pull them off. even try disposable ones

I started my son weaning early at 3 and a half months as he was asking for something more than milk. I have found that starting with food that is very thin and has no lumps such as baby rice and puree fruit gave him a good start and around every two weeks make the consistancy more lumpy. Then after a month I started with other foods. I found buying the pots of food and puree them if you needed to. I know buy some pots that are older than his age for the lumps in the pots (make sure they are things they can eat at that time such as eggs etc). I know puree some of my leftovers for him making sure he can eat them and they are not to salty etc.

We pureed veg in the hand blender and then froze lots in ice cube trays, and then transferred each portion (usually 2 or 3 cubes) into a freezer bag. Remember to label the frozen food so you know what it is (pureed fruit and veg can look very similar!!!) and also the date when you froze it. BTW, we started with lunch, then breakfast and lunch and then our third meal was supper - do whatever suits you and your baby's routine and needs - and only when you are both ready move to the next meal - it took 2 months for us to get to three meals a day (go with your instincts - sometimes parents should just be ignored!!!) Looking forward to the fun when baby #2 comes along ;)
by msdennell 16th May 2007, 3:44pm
After milk the first foods need to be easily digestable and be bland and unoffensive.
by madbadger 15th May 2007, 9:23am
I have no idea about solids as this is my first one but I am looking forward to learning all about it!
by Emsy 15th May 2007, 9:22am
Start your child on solids when you feel ready, you dont HAVE to wait until they are 6 months old. You know whats best for you child, no-one else.
by Ld2410 11th May 2007, 3:28pm
Allow plenty of time for the first time you feed your baby solids - if you're in a rush, your baby will pick up on this too!
by Luciox 11th May 2007, 8:29am
I mash my baby's rusks with pureed apple or melon instead of milk or water, that way he gets extra fruit in his diet.
by Dracoiratus 11th May 2007, 8:28am
I use an electric steamer to prepare vegetables for baby weaning foods, this way I can prepare a range of flavours at one time and freeze small amount in an icecube tray, The veg water from the base of the steamer is ideal as a stock for baby recipes as it contains all the goodness from the veg without any salt (unlike ready-prepared stocks and gravies).
by PURPLEGENIE1000 7th May 2007, 5:04pm
Your baby may have 'strange' tastes at first and my advice is to just go with it! My daughter would eat anything as long as it was mashed with banana, including scrambled egg!
by faylisa 4th May 2007, 8:58am
I always swear by using heinz baby rice to get ur baby on its way!
by bilatch 2nd May 2007, 2:08pm
To get fruit into your babies diet I started mixing a small amount of pureed fruit into my babies heinz baby rice when he got to about 4/5months old, not only does it give extra flavour to the rice but it gets them used to the taste of fruit and when they get over 6months a great way is to puree fruit and make them into ice lollies for a daily healthy summer treat, my son loves them.

Heinz foods are a good range for babies and contain the things to keep baby healthy and happy

Try your baby with every taste one at a time from the start that way they are less fussy eaters when they are older, you will know when they love or hate something, even if they spit it out keep trying as their taste buds grow. What they hate they may grow to love. My son loves things i never thought he would including parsnip, I also found avent make beaker tops that fit all the avent range even at 3mths he mastered the art of sucking and I found he made less fuss drinking water/juice but with a bottle it came out so fast he choked.
by AskBaby8355 1st May 2007, 8:48am
Introduce water to drink with meals as soon as possible. But don't give up if your baby seems reluctant. It tooks me four goes before I found a drinking cup that my baby could manage. The first flowed too fast, the second seemed too hard to suck, the third resulted in a lot of spillage but the fourth seemed just right for my daughter. However, as each baby is different, it's well worth experimenting with various styles and makes.
by chillihaha 30th Apr 2007, 8:36am
Heinz Baby rice was the first thing i started my baby on . She loves eating that with a veg puree , and I tried to mix and match different vegetables and freeze the portions. For keeping her intrested, i keep all her toys around.. and give her one by one as she gets bored of them soon! For each new toy, around 3 spoons of food goes :)
by AskBaby8055 26th Apr 2007, 1:42pm
I have only just started introducing food, and I think the best tip is too take things slowly, one day at a time, and use baby rice or softened rusks to start with. It gets your baby used to the routine of spoon to mouth and having something a bit different, but not too shocking in their mouthes. Eventually you can introduce different textures and flavours, but start simple. I say.
by CatKin76 23rd Apr 2007, 1:18pm
To introduce lumps add a few baby pasta stars to babies usual pureed food or stage 1 jar, gradually increase the amount of pasta over a few weeks.
by Ceilidhsmum 23rd Apr 2007, 8:59am
If your baby is not taking to weaning very well, try feeding one spoonful of food then give baby drink of milk take it in turns they will soon get used to eating the food and may start eating the whole bowl.
