That's really good to hear R&A&H. I have had nothing but trouble from MACH nurses and their equivalent so have every intention of avoiding when DS3 is born.
Both kids early to experiment 4-5 ish months and reflux
When I mentioned that my two older children were similar weights at birth she asked whether I had them on diets now or whether they are still obese (they are FAR from obese!)
I've actually had a really good one here in Canberra - compeltely fit in with my 'do whats right for you' mentality. Think shes southside based though.
As for your question, DD we didnt start properly until about 6.5 months. We offerred her puree ar 4.5 - didnt work and it wasnt until 6.5 that we did properly as we were on holidays when she was 6 month.
DS was 6 months on the dot
Well we started dd3 at 6.5mths just tasting what we are eating. And she is taking to it so well. Everything she is trying out. She loves curries and rotis so I'm happy.
My goddaughter was about 9-10 mths. Any earlier attempts she just vomited. Was thriving on breastmilk and off the growth charts. She eventually started trying things and now 2 yrs old and healthy and eats anything. We don't have a MCHN system in qld so no pressure from anyone.
My DS1 started 5.5 months after a very rude MCHN (in Melbourne) told me he was starving and would continue waking 3+ times a night if I didn't hurry up and start solids 😳. I had intended to wait until 6 months but rushed home and cried while I forced him to eat rice cereal (which he hated). It's so cr@p to feel pressured into it. This time round I will do baby led weaning fk what anyone else says.
