Annabel karmel has a few nice ones. Have you got the book? Worth getting - I use it all the time. If not, she has a website which may have suggestions.
Anything with sweet potato and lentils is nice - use red split lentils if you can, they're yum! x

my LO's favourite is Lentil stew...
fry leeks/onion in knob of butter
add baby veg stock and florets of brocolli and cauliflour and plenty of red lentils
boil for 30mins so the veg is very soft and the lentils are cooked through, i used to mash the veg into a lumpy stew but he now has it as it comes...he loves it! (and so does mummy!)

try this book
Finger foods for babies and toddlers. Written by a veggie so lots of lentil and other meat alternatives. Good book for meat eaters too!

are the lentils you are all using just the orange coloured ones that youget from tescos??

moonbean, i actually cheat (slap on the wrist) and use the tinned ones in tesco (nr the tinned toms and baked beans etc), about 45p a tin i think, saves all the long soaking etc first, but they do need rinsing off first xx

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!
