Everything you need to start weaning your baby

May 8, 2020 admin 2

This week is national weaning week (4th May – 8th May) and it just so happens to fall the week before Layla turns six months old which is when we plan to start our very own weaning journey.

Lock down is tough. Home schooling is even tougher. But I am forever grateful that during this time we have both a garden and a village that we can use during the day for exercise and I really feel for those that have limited outdoor space they can’t easily access at the moment.  I am feeling even more grateful for the work opportunities that I am still getting, including  the one we have been working […]

For me the plan is easy to follow, you can eat loads and enjoy a real variety of food and if you want to have treats you can use up to 15 syns […]
