Before you get down to the exciting business of introducing those first few tastes of food, you’ll need the right things to hand!
Up until now your baby has only had milk, so anything too strong in flavour may come as a bit of a shock.
During the first stage of weaning, there are some foods that you’ll want to avoid giving to your baby if they’re under 6 months old, to help prevent them developing allergies or infection.
It can take time for your baby to get used to eating foods and things might not always run smoothly when you introduce something new! Bear in mind that weaning is a gradual process and most parents have probably worn purée in their hair at some point!
