Canโ€™t wait to go back to London soon and stay at @southplacehotel ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’žxxx looking forward to having a trip when I can take Matilda on her own and just give her my attention but I canโ€™t do that when Delilah is so small ๐Ÿ’“xxx

So this morning I posted about weaning my baby girl at nearly 5 months and I got quite a lot of negative comments.
I like to be honest and open on my Instagram, I like to share my real experiences and itโ€™s great if I can help other Mums!
I know a lot of Mums follow me so I wasnโ€™t being irresponsible posting that Iโ€™m weaning my baby whoโ€™s nearly five months. Iโ€™m not an expert but I do think each baby is different. Matilda was walking at 11 months and some little ones take longer with that but she wasnโ€™t great with her food. I suppose they all go at their own pace and Delilah is loving little baby fruit purรฉes and is really interested ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿxxx
Iโ€™m only giving her little licks of the spoon not the whole packet and on the baby packages it says from 4 months onwards and no mum shaming please that I didnโ€™t boil the fruit. I am still feeding her myself and will do as long as she needs x
I breastfeed and my toddler is still in my bed ๐Ÿ˜„ but what works for me wonโ€™t work for someone else. It doesnโ€™t make you a better mum what ever your choice of feeding ๐Ÿ’˜x
I do think as Mums weโ€™re all in it together, we should support each other, itโ€™s not a competition. ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’ž Weโ€™re all just trying our best really no one is perfect and we should uplift each other as women as itโ€™s the best job but not always the easiest ๐Ÿ’ž

Beautiful coat and beret @emile.et.rose ๐Ÿ’“

We are weaning ๐Ÿ’ž! Xx
With Matilda I waited till she was 6 months before I started weaning her and I just hated weaning so much ๐Ÿ˜ฉx Matilda would never ever take a spoon from me and had absolutely no interest in food until way past she was one years old, only had interest in milk x Everyone in my family tried to try to get Matilda to wean even my nanna๐Ÿ˜„. Weaning used to really stress me out, as a first time mum with Matilda Iโ€™d feel like argh what am I doing wrong why wonโ€™t she wean for me and Iโ€™d worry especially as she was a slim baby girl ๐Ÿ˜ฉ I always said with my second baby Iโ€™d start earlier with weaning just to get them used to it and Iโ€™d always said to my mum I hope I have a baby that will eat for me ๐Ÿ˜„x Delilah loves her food and the spoon so Iโ€™m so relieved and itโ€™s so cute x I did baby led weaning with Matilda which has a lot of positives but it made me worried that my baby was going to choke at first and would at first only do the baby led weaning when Scott was home from training ๐Ÿ˜„x Which obviously they donโ€™t choke if you look into baby led weaning but I wasnโ€™t as confident with Matilda as I am with Delilah x Matilda is still not an amazing eater and me and scott are always trying with her food but Iโ€™m hoping Delilah will be great and Iโ€™ll be able to get Matilda eating vegetables x Iโ€™m going to make my own baby food too I tried it loads with Matilda but it all went to waste ๐Ÿ˜„ would love to hear how other mummyโ€™s are finding weaning? I really feel like each baby is different, Delilah is five months next week and she seems really ready and really enjoying๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ‰๐Ÿฅฆxxx

When your baby falls asleep in the car and you get some peace ๐Ÿ™Œ the red cups are out and so are my nails to be fair I always go for red ๐Ÿ’…โค๏ธ I get my nails done by @_jknailbar_ I like to get them done at home as itโ€™s more relaxing with Delilah x oat milk lattes are the one๐Ÿ™…๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ’˜xxx
