4 Ways to encourage independence at mealtimes

4 Ways to encourage independence at mealtimes

Raising kids is hard enough at the best of times, and there are always a hundred and one ways of doing things. What one mum will call the ‘right’ way, another mum would be horrified at, and that can be really hard, especially if you’re a first-time mum. I loved watching my babies learn how to be independent at mealtimes. They were both eating Petit Filous by 5 months... oh and eating juicy pears was always fun. I started weaning at 17 weeks.

Cooking with the kiddies and fun recipes in Ella’s Kitchen recipe book

Cooking with the kiddies and fun recipes in Ella’s Kitchen recipe book

I love cooking with the kiddies and when we were sent the new Ella's Kitchen Easy Family Cookbook, we had to try out some fun recipes. Ella's Kitchen challenged us to make our favourite recipe from the book and the kiddies found it so much fun. The orange cookbook is one of 4 in the range and they are brilliant for kids and people like me, who have no idea what to cook for dinner! VIEW the POST

Isla – 1 year and 8 months

The same introduction as Noah can be said for Isla, my tiny little baby girl was so poorly over Christmas and New Years – it was heartbreaking. I really didn’t like seeing her so floppy, sleepy and poorly. We officially hate bugs, illnesses and anything of that nature in our household now. We got through it but it ruled out the period from Christmas Day until New years eve. Little Isla was just not herself at all.

2 weeks today….

2 weeks today….

My little dinky Isla Rae is going to be 1 years old in 2 weeks time, I remember when Noah turned one and I felt like the year had gone so quickly and in comparison this year has gone so much quicker. We have done so much this year, including a trip on an aeroplane and a trip to Wales for New Year; lots of family events and friends events where Isla has met lots of little people to play games with over the next few years and we have come so far in relation to being a family of 4!

Isla Rae – 11 Months

Isla Rae – 11 Months

> With only a month to go until the little lady is a whole 1 years old, we are making the most out of her being a "baby". She still looks far too tiny to be classed a toddler - but I suppose the inevitable is going to happen. VIEW the POST
