Weaning by Baby Steps

When your baby has only had milk, whether it’s breast or formula, the thought of giving them ‘real’ food can be a daunting one - especially with the mountain of information out there!

This Weaning Course gives you all the information you need to feel super prepared, with the opportunity to ask questions, whatever stage you are at, and most of all to ensure you’re going to enjoy this time with your baby.

Between 4 – 6 months old your baby will be ready for solid food. Following the latest recommendations, Baby Steps will advise you step-by-step on when and how to introduce different foods to your baby. We discuss different options for weaning including 'traditional' purees, finger foods and ‘baby led weaning’, food preparation and food hygiene, teething and dental care, cups and dummies are also discussed to ensure you feel confident about the many questions that arise during this stage of your baby’s development.

This invaluable one and a half hour course is designed to help you enjoy this exciting stage and make meal times fun. All the information given follows the latest guidelines.  I liaise with Nutritionists and reguarly attend courses in Child Health and Nutrition at the Institute of Optimal Nutrition ensuring individual advice.  You will be given a comprehensive booklet covering all info from the course, plus further handouts to refer to at home on your Weaning journey.  

I am on a mission to ensure parents and carers are as well informed as possible when making decisions about their child's nutrition. 

Weaning Course at Home

The Weaning course can be shared at home with friends or family at a time to suit you. Babies are always welcome.

Appointments for Weaning

I am delighted to offer the course on a one to one basis or the appointment can be shared with a friend.  If more convenient an appointment can be arranged online via FaceTime, What's App or Skype.  Weaning Packages offering the course at home with either follow up home visits or phone calls ensure you have all the support you need on your Weaning journey.  Just get in touch for more details.  

Appointments for Feeding related issues

If you have any concerns or queries about your little one's feeding, whether breast or bottle, feeding patterns, sleep, discomfort they may have from colic, reflux, constipation, Cow's Milk Protein Intolerance or Allergy or issues with toddler's or young children's meal times or eating habits please do get in touch.  I work alongside leading Nuritionists and Health Professionals to offer individual advice.  I am Certified Infant Massage Instructor so can incorporate the benefits of Baby Massage into a plan to ease symptoms and offer you relaxation.
