Weaning your baby onto solids is both an exciting and nerve wracking experience. While it’s magical to see your tot eat food for the first time, you may also feel apprehensive about allergies, choking hazards and whether or not your baby is receiving enough nutrients. To give you a nudge in the right direction we’ve teamed up with Chirin Kawatmi, the founder of popular mum and baby subscription service, Mama’s Box. The Dubai-based mum-of-two is passionate about weaning and runs baby weaning cookery classes. On May 16th she’ll be running one of her seminars at our Al Safa Store, so in preparation for that we decided to pick her brains on how to introduce solids to your baby. Here’s what she had to say.
Now four months old, my little one seems to be getting irritated at sitting in her bouncer while we eat. To placate her we’ve invested in a Beaba Babyboost Seat and she now joins us at the table. With a plastic cup and spoon to keep her occupied, she seems much happier to be involved, but it has also served as a reminder that before long she won’t be content simply to watch mealtimes, she’ll want to be part of them… Enter weaning.
