Piglet, look at the dates hun, this is from 2007 and the other thread is 2011. I think in the last 3 / 4 years guidleines have changed to wean at 6 months but prior to that it was normal to wean at 17 weeks. X
I started weaning at around 21 weeks. he was very active early on and showed signs of wanting food. He was interested in the food we were eating, doing the chewing movements with his mouth, waking up more during the night, sitting up, reaching out for food off our plates. So I started feeding him baby rice mixewithin breast milk once a day around 5/6pm. Then about 2 weeks later started giving him puréed carrot, sweet potato, red lentils. Then from 6 months, I started him on 3 meals. day. He would still have his normal milk feeds while he was being weaned. At first I fed him on my lap or sofa and then moved him into the high chair from around 6 months. But leading up to him feign fed in the high chair, I used to sit him in while I was cooking so he got used to the chair.
