Georgie is now well into the solid phase and doing quite well. Seeing as he wasn’t sleeping very well at 5 months our pediatrician gave us the OK to start solids. He was exclusively breastfed up until then as he wouldn’t accept formula so we gave fruit jar food and powders a go. By six months he was sleeping through the night- something I never thought would happen! Now he loves porridge with bananas and apples, can’t get enough of anything with cheese sauce and goes all starry-eye when I offer him toast and jam. As a first-time mama, naturally I am a little paranoid about choking so everything he eats is finely chopped or mashed.
