Henry's weaning journey
Henry is now 8 months. Our weaning journey had been eventful. (If you want to know more, please read "hits if weaning" under the 6-7 month topic) After a very helpful appt with a dietician we have discovered its cows milk he can't have, and it's that that causes the terrible eczema on his face. So I now face new challenges in reading all labels checking all ingredients, I have to ensure he has a diary free diet! The meals I have been doing him so far have been very plain, as up until now I didn't know what was causing his face to flare up. However he has loved these meals, I cooked up rice, chicken, carrot, sweet pot, broccoli and cauliflower all in seperate freezer bags in small portions, this means I can mix and match any veg etc. I also made up a batch of stock in ice cube trays so the meals wouldn't be bland. The rice helps with different textures too. Now I know it's the cows milk, Henry can start having what we are having, making meal times so much easier.
