How did you feel at the start of your weaning journey with Ari?
I was excited for her to try new things and move on to the next milestone, but it was also a bit overwhelming! Before solids, it was easy - just milk for her mealtimes but now, I'll have to grocery shop for her, think of what to cook, and create a variety and balanced meal each time. So, there's definitely more to think about. Plus every meal is a major clean up operation!
How did you navigate through the vast amount of information and advice out there?
I absorbed it all! I am the kind that will read anything and everything, speak to other moms, and get help and advice from paediatric dieticians. I want to know it all - the research, facts, tips and tricks, hacks, and what other moms have done. So, I downloaded all that information and then made the choices that I feel work best for my family.
What are your go-to resources (eg. books, websites, IG, groups) for information and meal ideas?
I love solidstarts.com! I also reference a lot from Annabel Karmel and Helwig recipe books.
