Finding your own routine

Is your baby starving in the morning? Or a bit of a snacker? Successful weaning is all about finding a pattern that works for both of you.

By now, you and your little one are probably starting to develop your own mealtime pattern. Remember, babies, parents and ways of life are all different, so weaning charts are only an approximate guide to help you figure out what and when to feed your baby.

For example, you might like to give your baby breakfast early, together with a milk feed, or you might find it's easier to give the milk feed by itself and then offer breakfast (with no milk feed) an hour or so later. You’ll soon figure out what works best for you both.
