Sorry to hear that your Lo has been poorly. At 7 months there is no need to go through the ^stages* of weaning, that's a leftover from the days of early weaning. He should be able to eat anything you offer, provided you avoid the obviously ones like high salt, high sugar, honey and whole nuts smile

How about giving him some ready brek as its smooth and mixing in some fruit purée?

Thought you might like this thread as it has a lot of suggestions smile

Eggy bread is a favourite here - really soft and just dissolves if you're worried about finger food. DD also has yoghurt and mashed fruit, scotch pancakes/drop scones, porridge, weetabix or shredded wheat sogged in milk, and toast with melted cheese, cream cheese, banana, avocado or nut butter on it

What about Oatibix? I give that to dd2 (now 11 months), and she really likes it. I mix a different fruit with it each day (keep frozen cubes of fruit in freezer, or mashed banana).

Triangles of toast are good - at 7 months he should be trying some finger foods.

If he doesn't like porridge (which I can well understand), you could try very milky Weetabix.

Hi everyone,

My DS is 7mo today and weaning has been slightly stressful! Initially wouldn't take anything I puréed for him then got gastroenteritis so was off solids for 10 days on advice of GP. Since then have been giving him Ella's kitchen for lunch and puréed fruit as a mid-afternoon snack with great success.

The last few mornings I have tried to give a breakfast of porridge which he doesn't like at all. Just spits it out! Can anyone give me any suggestions of alternatives I can try him with. Doesn't seem to like textures at the moment.

I intend to start making him homemade food again when I move onto second stage feeding in the next couple of weeks. Fingers crossed!

Thanks again in advance for your tips!
