    Default BLW - what type of bread is best?

    DS is 6 mths and we have just started solids (BLW). We eat multigrain bread at home but I am not sure if this is okay for him or not. Would wholemeal be better?

    I introduced toast at 7 months and she has had multigrain bread from this point with no problems!

    Personally I would recommend wholemeal or sourdough at that age - grains can be tricky to digest - DS has wholemeal, spelt , rye or sourdough

    Thank you so much for the replies - looks like suggestions are mixed! I will think about whether its worth buying some sourdough/wholemeal so it's a bit gentler for his tummy
