Raising children can be very complicated for new parents. It must seem like those offering advice are constantly changing their minds. This is because the human race is constantly growing, learning new things and adapting along the way. Weaning your baby is one area that has changed a lot over the years. So much so that it can be difficult to know what is best for your baby. National Weaning Week is a campaign to help parents decide on the best way forward. It’s another event that has dubious origins. But that doesn’t really matter because there is an important message to share.
The Aim of National Weaning Week
The aim of Weaning Week is to bring together experts, brands and real families to offer help, advice, tips, support and recipes to make weaning as easy as possible. By creating a supportive network for parents, we hope that parents will look to wean their child as nutritiously as possible so they are less fussy eaters and will want to lead a healthy lifestyle later on.
How You Can Take Part
You might have your own weaning stories to share on social media. Simply use the hashtag #WeaningWeek, and your story can be read by a large number of people.
What is Weaning?
Weaning is a stage in your child’s development when solid foods are introduced into their diet. Several decades ago, babies would have been weaned when just a few months old. Nowadays however, the switch tends to happen around the age of six months.
