    I actually slept while the baby slept this morning! Should have been doing any number of jobs instead! Won't tell poor DP who is at work :-)

    I got up and made a coffee- i deserve this break too.



    To be fair, I do have tonsillitis, and spent all weekend doing everything because DH "has a cold", so I'm exhausted.

The nurse at the clinic last week was very insistent that I increase his solids and start reducing bottles as he's still having a feed approx every 3hrs during the day (sleeps through most nights). He hasn't been too interested in eating much, especially off a spoon, but he will happily play with food and shove it in his mouth to explore so I've just been letting him do that and whatever he actually swallows is a bonus.

    I've been giving him mostly vegetables so far and he's had some roast chicken but the nurse was adamant he needed to start eating red meat for the iron. He's quite a gaggy baby so I thought maybe slow cooked would be good.
    Technically it will lose a bit but if your cooking a stew or soup and the lid is closed all the excess vitamins etc leak out into the water so in theory you still get all the nutrients if that makes sense!

    People over stress about iron but try not to worry, hes only 7.5months - babies typically don't like the texture of red meat so these are a few other good iron sources:

    Eggs - with the yolk, scrambled or boiled or egg pancake

    Black strap molasses - the highest iron content of any food! Get it at the health food shop and brush it on his roast veggies or put in your soups and stocks

    Spinach - spinach is better for you cooked not raw so add it to his eggs, stews, toasted sandwiches ect

    Chia seeds - add to everything!

    Fresh or dried herbs - put them in anything!

    Mini meat balls, mini salmon cakes

    Default Lazy today

    Thank you!! I will try some slow cooked meats and I already use spinach and herbs quite a lot so I'll make some more baby-friendly things with those. I'm making lamb kofta for dinner so I might let him try some of that.

    He loves roast veggies so I'll look for that black strap molasses to use

    Well I spent an hour in the study and finished off the reading for week 1 of Uni yay! Feel like I've achieved something so now I'm eating lunch and watching Dr Phil. I'm so housewife today.

    I just asked my mum to go get me a cappuccino and she is! ( technically she's at the shops anyway and lives around the corner!)
