When 'wean-day' came on 16th March (the day Jesse turned 6 months) life threw a bit of a curve ball in the form of mastitis, a potential breast abscess and two days in hospital. Needless to say we didn't stress about sitting Jesse down for his first bite and just waited for things to calm down.

I've been meaning to put all my weaning recipes in one place, but, well I've been busy weaning. Lawrence is now nine months old and eats pretty much what we eat.
