Weaning up to 8 months with help from Hipp Organic

15 Jun

Weaning is going swimmingly these days! Isaac, at 8 months, will eat anything from a jam sandwich to a pouch of slightly “lumpy” food!

Once he’d got over his chest infection when he was 6 months old, which set us back slightly he took well to all 4 months plus food. We gave him a mixture of mush, for want of a better word, and some large pieces of food. We felt that he just wouldn’t get enough food into him following baby led weaning alone.

The 4months+ food we received from Hipp Organic had some great flavour combinations and were all enjoyed.

This week we tried the 7 month plus pouches. When we’ve had similar sized pouches previously, Isaac has only managed half a pouch and then had the other half the next day. It turns out this week that his appetite has increased and he ate the full mediterranean vegetable spaghetti and cried when it ran out!

I thought that the food was quite smooth when I squeezed the first bit of the food out, but it turned out that the second part had the spaghetti lumps in it. I just needed to mix it better before squeezing it out.

I took the second pouch out with us when we ate out. It was really easy to heat it up by placing it in hot water. I have a flask with a large top that is specifically designed for the job of holding baby food or bottles and is really useful.

The hearty vegetable, pork and apple casserole was very tasty and the whole pouch got eaten by Isaac who was very pleased with himself!

The five pouches pictured were sent to me to test for free, but the words, pictures and opinions are my own.

    Sounds like my son – once he got the hang of it, no stopping him! So much easier.

      You’re right. Tonight he ate roast dinner with us…just a bit mushed up with gravy! He loved it!
