I just do a basic one:
1 carton of passata
Beef stock (i use kalo stock cubes which are low in salt)
I brown the mince, add the chopped onion, passata, stock and herbs. Simmer for about 30 mins. Add garlic at the end.

mine is also very basic
two tins of chopped tomato
you dont have to add all those ingrediants, leave out the mushroom, garlic and pepper if you want, but i add them to give lo lots of different textures and taste.

I usually put a bit of plain flour in it at the end to thicken it up.

I make mine similar to those described above but i will also add in any other suitable veg I have (like courgettes, aubergine). It's a good way to get as much veg in as possible.
I also use a different mince each time I make one up and freeze individual portions so I use turkey mince, chicken mince, veal and lamb mince, as well as beef. When I serve it I add in cheese, and a lot of the time also avocado and some sour cream or soft cheese! He loves it, in fact had one tonight made from turkey mince.
PS I always buy the premium grade mince.

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!
