Win 1 of 5 Organix weaning bundles ( & some GREAT weaning advice)

How did weaning go for you?

I look back and remember mainly how stressful I found it. My son would pull the most expressive of faces which would really worry me as he tried out new foods. They went a bit like this…

I recall there being a lot of the ‘snub’

A recent survey by Organix reveals that one of the biggest barriers to introducing new foods during weaning is baby’s facial expression in response to new tastes.

I totally get that. we try so hard to read our babies don’t we/

  • More than half (55%) of mums say a baby’s facial expression puts them off trying to encourage their baby to like a new taste and flavour.
  • 49% say it’s a struggle to keep babies interested in food.
  • 42% say they find it hard to get babies to try new foods during weaning.

It can be challenging to introduce new foods during weaning and the faces babies pull can be interpreted by parents as disgust or dislike at what they are trying, which can make it all the harder.

I love the interpretations above, very useful indeed!

Vivien Sabel is the author of the awesome The Blossom Method: The Revolutionary Way to Communicate With Your Baby From Birth (you must read this book!)

She  is a Clinical Psychotherapist and body language expert and has some great weaning advice:

  • Look out for all of your baby’s non-verbal cues and expressions, they can support your baby and you through weaning and trying new foods.
  • Observe your baby’s expression and mirror it back to your baby as a way of saying you understand their communication.
  • Remember babies do what babies see! They are like sponges and soak up everything you do, if you look like you’re enjoying the food, your baby is likely to copy you.
  • The more time you spend observing your baby the more you’ll understand what they’re communicating.

How fabulous are these tips!
