    I hated weaning. Too much stress about what he was eating and how much. At one point i was convinced he’d never eat anything but puree till he was 18! I’m soon glad its over! #CoolMumClub

    Haha, I remember thinking all of this when my boy was weaning. Especially wondering about the orange face and getting all in his eyes/the floor! Things are slightly better now he’s 2!xx #TheList

    Sounds very familiar! Especially 1 – I’m always searching for food that I’m not sure has been eaten rather than imaginatively hidden! #thelist

    Ah I remember the weaning days fondly! I had no idea a baby could get SO messy from a bit of food!!!! Spag bol was by far the messiest, most orange but yummiest meal my son had 😉 #sundaystars

    Haha I agree! – “did you eat any of it” *whilst frantically picking the orange food off of the cream carpet quickly hoping you don’t miss any” :p Thanks so much for linking up at #KCACOLS. Hope you come back again in the New Year xx

    Eeeek, weaning. Still makes me shudder! Ironically, my children ate pretty much anything which was puréed, but refuse most food now. I remember pureeing sweet potato and liver – yuck. They loved it. Liver has not made an appearance since.

    Ha ha. Thankfully N baby led weaned, and everything just went straight in his mouth. He wasn’t wasting anything! It’s certainly a worrying time for parents though

    haha, number 10 was always me – my little girl would shove her hand in the sloppiest, orangest food then run her hands through her hair – I should have just fed her in the bath and killed two birds with one stone!!

    Haha, all so true! And what strikes me about this list is that it’s always a matter of two extremes. Either they eat you out of house and home one day (or meal!) or they completely refuse everything you have on hand, always one or the other 🙂
