Can I only give lo baby pasta, or can I give normal pasta? xx

you can give normal pasta. if you find it too big you can literally cut it up with kitchen scissors

for blw its better to use normal pasta as small shells they can suck back which cause gagging. I made the mistake and bought penne which are similar to slippery goldfish! The best are fusili as they are easier to hold hth x x x

We use boots baby stars pasta and lo loves it, I dont eat pasta myself so it's easier for me to just buy baby pasta and cook what she needs from that,

Thanks for your replies. I thought it was ok, but felt it better to check.
I have Fusili in the cupboard, so that was the one I intended to use.

I gave DS big pasta but he really struggled with it and just sucked the sauce off. I now give him baby pasta and he loves it as he can scoop up handfuls of it x

Thanks Smithyswife. We are doing BLW and purees, so big pasta is good! James hasn't mastered chewing yet, as we've only been weaning for 4 days.

We had noodles the other night and Sasha was sucking them up like spaghetti, I was quite impressed, but she was able to quite easily grab a handful and manage to get enough of it in her mouth to suck some up.

Ahh bless her. We'll try Spaghettii etc. when James has mastered the chewing. Sounds fun.

Spaghetti (actually linguine as they are a bit thicker and easier to pick up) or noodles are winners in this house!
Also fresh, stuffed pasta like cappelleti as they are v soft and slippery.
Fusilli comes apart which she doesn't seem to like. Penne are ok but she seem to slip out of her hands too easily.

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!
