If I could start weaning again, I would definitely have given Alice more 'real' food. Unfortunately, I was a little confused about the whole introducing food thing, and ended up buying jars and packets so I knew that everything she was eating was ok. Anyway, I am in the process of switching Alice over to 'real' food and it's going pretty good, but a little slow. It took her 3 days to get to like my chicken hotpot!
Anyway. I bought a lot of Ella's kitchen products because they are simply to use and store again and you can use them on the go quite easily, just put the lid back on and use it again later. They are, of course, organic and there is nothing in it other than what is supposed to be! They come in great flavours and different stages so you can move baby on to chewing when she is ready.
I am in the process of moving Alice onto stage 2 foods or foods with lumps. To be honest, I should have done it a while ago but I have simply been too nervous. So I bought a few Ella's kitchen stage 2 food to see how big the lumps are supposed to be and tried Alice with the spaghetti. And... she loved it! In fact, she ate it with complete ease and the lumps didn't even bother her!
Now I need to start introducing some finger foods... :S
