Dear Blogging Community

I’m just going to get straight to the point. I haven’t been reading your blog. Please don’t take it personally because when I say I’m not reading your blog, I mean I’m not reading any blogs. Pretty much ever. I know this makes me a pretty rubbish community member. I do feel badly about that. Supporting the people in your own community is a no-brainer. I know that if I participated more, my own blog would likely benefit – by increased traffic if nothing else. But here’s the truth.

Government guidelines advise  that your baby should be on breast milk till they are six months old and that weaning should also commence when they are six months old. As far as I’m concerned Government advice isn’t suited to every baby. Like I mentioned before, not all woman can breast feed and there are some hungry babies who are advised by midwives to try with some baby rice to help satisfy the hunger at a young age. We are told that once a baby can sit with his head up and doing a chewing motion then it is safe to give a child some puree foods. They advise no later than six months as a baby will start to feel hungry. Recommended foods to start with include baby porridge and steamed pears,… View Post
