Weaning at 9 Months

I meant to keep a regular weaning diary as other mummies seem to be interested in hearing about it. But I didn’t. So, better late than never, I’ll do an update on weaning at 9 months old. I was a bit scared to move on from purées as I felt somehow I’d get it wrong…

Boden Casting at Worx Studios

We all went up to London yesterday as Luther had a casting for Boden, at Worx Studios in Parsons Green. We got the train to Clapham and then walked to Parsons Green which was very pleasant on a crisp, autumnal day. Luther slept for the walk – which was perfect timing – and we arrived…

Vegetable Baby Food by Babease

Luther was sent some of the new vegetable-based Babease pouches to try out. Firstly, I love the branding, the illustrations are inviting and the cardboard covers look really sweet over the plastic pouch. The information on the back of the cover is clear and informative. Inside the cover is a recipe for mummy – which…

Bloom Nano Urban Highchair

Luther has been sent the Bloom Nano Urban Highchair to put through its paces. This means, can mummy put it together whilst Luther plays, if it takes too long screaming will commence, and can it be cleaned up easily (this assumes he’ll sit in it) So, putting it together. The box was heavy. Much heavier…

Brown Owl – Silicone Jungle Bibs

Weaning Update

Luther’s list of foods is rapidly increasing. I’m still giving him some Ella’s Kitchen pouches but mixing it with organic baby rice and other foods, to bulk it out and give it texture. I’ve also been giving him things to feed himself – so partly baby-led. He’s really enjoyed it and looks thrilled when it…

Start the Food Fight

So, Luther is nearly six months (I know everyone says it, but seriously, where has the time gone?) I have started the weaning process. He’s been keen to reach out and grab whatever i’ve been eating so it was fun to see how he liked it when he finally got it in his gob! To…

Luther in London

We were in London over the weekend to celebrate Luther’s grand-parents Ruby Wedding Anniversary. Amazing! He thoroughly enjoyed his trip and seemed to relish all the new sights and sounds. When it was time to put him to bed on Saturday night, after a quick bath in the sink and some baby food, I made…
