Food Glorious Food...

At James' four month check-up, the nurse suggested introducing some solids into his diet as he had become unsettled at night. He had started waking hungry once, sometimes twice, a night. We had gone back in time to the newborn phase and my sleep was really suffering. I had started to give him a top up EBM bottle after his night time feed, but this wasn't a long term solution for me. So we started giving James some rice cereal at lunch time and then moved it to dinner time. He was back to sleeping from 7pm to 6:30am! Since then we have introduced pumpkin, pear, apple, potato, sweet potato and natural yogurt. He loves savoury not too fussed on sweet (unlike his mother!) and was a little unsure about yogurt but everything we've introduced he's eaten.

Stop taking photos of me and give me more pumpkin!


  1. Great news.... sleep is certainly precious :)) Wonderful that he loves solids so much... can make life so much easier :) With you on the sweets xoxo

  2. Such a sweet little face! Alas, when we started solids it didn't improve Griffin's night time sleep all too much :(. Hope you have a great rest of your week!


  3. Ooh we haven't tried pumpkin, we'll have to add that to the menu and see if Chloe likes it. Love his face in that picture!

  4. So sweet! I'm glad he's back to sleeping better!
