For the past few days I have been introducing Little E to baby rice. At the moment we are exploring first tastes and are following the Gina Ford weaning guide.
We are on days 1 – 3 where you introduce one teaspoon of baby rise at the 11am feed. I’m going to carry on with this introduction for a week or so. This gives me time to prepare the food for the next stage and just gives her a bit more time to get used to the sensation of solids.
Little E has taken to the rice really well. I feel it has helped her sickness in the afternoons a little, and that is why we wanted to introduce the rice earlier than official guidelines suggest.
Weaning Little E is turning out to be a completely new experience for me. Ethan never used to use his hands and was, still is, a very clean eater. I have very few photos of him covered in food. Little E grabs at the spoon and my hands, and also puts her hands up to her mouth. We are getting in a complete mess with the rice!
I think she is having lots of fun trying out the baby rice.
