So I'm going to start weaning my LO soon, and I was wondering what the best apples are?
(I'll be making all her pur????es myself)
Green or red?

I just buy tinned apples! It is so much easier than peeling and coring loads of fresh apples! As long as they are in their own (or other fruit) juice then they are fine. I just puree them straight from the tin and they make a great apple puree.
I also use tinned peaches as it is so much easier than trying to peel a ripe one!
If you are making your own apple puree i would think that red apples would be best as they are sweeter. Green ones can be a bit tart for a baby's first tastes

As Ladybird says, red apples tend to be a bit sweeter but at this time of year I would buy British if you can, no matter the colour. We got early russets in our veg box this week which are yellow brown and they taste amazing. They are also quite soft so don't need as much cooking (Peter had one baked for pudding last night).
Supermarkets don't do that many interesting varieties, but most should stock at least one British variety. Just don't get Granny Smiths which will be very tart!

hi everyone, new here but desperate for advice! My son is 1 month old on Tuesday and has been bottle feeding for the past 2 weeks. He has had problems since. He is extremely irritable, I’m sure my Son doesn’t have anytime while awake not crying, he cries ALL the time and I try EVERYTHING with no success. I have been to the hospital and doctors and they are so very unhelpful, they just tell me he has colic and basically I have to deal with it. I am almost certain, and the hospital also said, he has reflux (silent) as he rarely spits up but it is getting far worse and he is becoming more and more irritable, coughing after feeds and in between and starting to refuse feeds, scream, want them, take them and scream again. He has had Carobel from the hospital as they didn’t want to give Gaviscon due to chance of constipation, but it did absolutely nothing for him. He is now simply on infacol but has trouble pooing, which causes him distress, but is very runny. I guess i am I am desperately looking for advice on what to do, as it is increasingly hard with a baby that cries all day and won’t sleep or settle due to milk coming back up. I feel like I’m missing something and not giving him what he needs? HE IS SUCH A HUNGRY BABY! I feed him, change his nappy, cuddle him, sing to him, wind him, put him in swinger, walk round house, car - I am lost! Health visitor has done a referral to dietician however who knows how long this will take! Dad is lactose intolerant. Also, how much does your baby eat, or did eat at 1 month? Mine wants food every 1.5/2 hours! Please help!
