Why I started weaning at 12 weeks

I can hear the comments now " your recommended to wean at 6 months", " why are you rushing your baby?"  I have even been called a bad mother for doing it, and frankly I don' care.

Cohen was always a very hungry baby and at 3 months was having 5oz. So when we upped his bottles to 7oz and it still wasn't satisfying him, I wasn't waiting any longer.  He was no longer going to be unhappy because he is always hungry!

I 100% understand that people have their own opinions, as I do have mine. But no one deserves to be called a bad mum because of a choice they have been made for THEIR child. So whilst I respect your opinion, I would also love it if you respect that I would never do anything if I thought it would harm my child

My son is now 7 months old and so happy. He has and enjoys 3 solid meals a day and still have 4, 9oz bottles. He is very healthy and happy baby, who is thankfully meeting all of his milestones and then some.

If your a parent and you feel that you want to do something with your child that other people don't agree with, then I say make your own decisions. Those people haven't got to see your child unhappy.

  1. Hi! I'm from Russia and I've never heard about anything like this before! So I've got some questions. Did you consult a doctor how do you usually do it? What kind of food did you start with and what do give him now?
