WEANING ADVICE - Vegan / Dairy-Free Vegetarians Review with images

AdvantagesThis will lay rest to all those anti-baby-veganists!

DisadvantagesI'm sorry but it's another long one...

"...strongly against bringing up a baby to be vegan but it's really not such a bad thing to do armed with the right information. In my son's case, I had intended to bring him up to be vegetarian like I am and allow him to make his own decision later in life. But he couldn't tolerate cow milk formula and was prescribed Nutramigen hypo-allergenic formula milk at 8wks old. Being allergenic (as I am myself) I knew I'd have to wait until around 9 months before ..." Read review

Some Groovee recipes for your Bubba

AdvantagesQuick and easy to use, cheaper than jars

DisadvantagesThere aren't any as what is better than home made?

"...in a nursery in the baby room as well as being a mum to 2 babies who are now past the baby stage, I have concocted my own recipes and made my own baby food for both my children. I don't use salt when cooking, so my children very often ate what we were having and I just pureed it up for them. Here are some of the favourites which my 2 liked. oOoSweet Potato with Chicken and Broccoli oOo (best for a baby over 6 months) ½ Sweet Potato, ..." Read review

Yummy, Yummy, baby food

AdvantagesMaking your own baby food

Disadvantagesit's a messy time

"...my own personal view on baby food. MY OPINION Now that's cleared up, here's what I think. I make my babies food up myself as I think it's healthier, I know the exact ingredients my baby is eating and it only takes about 15 minutes to make as opposed to giving my baby a jar of food that has a 2 year shelf life and is found on the shelves in supermarkets not the fridge. I also use organic fruit and vegetables as I don't like to think of ..." Read review

Baby Food

AdvantagesReady Made


"I think that buying baby food from a supermarket is very expensive I have given my children our own food it is much cheaper in the long run . Make a little extra and don't add any sugar or salt to it you can always freeze it after it is cooked and put in small pots (yogurt pots) When you need to use them just defrost and warm up Buying the jars or tins of baby food may be alright when on holiday but you never know what is in them ..."

NEW in England ! THE food your baby will LOVE !!!

AdvantagesEasy to use, very tasty, quite cheap, babies ADORE it !

DisadvantagesYou tend to get lazy and don't MAKE food for your baby as often...

"...tell you about that !! My baby is very fussy over food so I cook a lot for him, fresh products are always the best of course. BUT I have to say that sometimes when you go out, when you are tired or maybe when Daddy is in charge, something EASIER would be appropriate ! To be honest I have tried many food on the English market and I have to say I was very disapointed.. I wouldn't even eat it myself !!! So what we use to do is to buy a load of ..." Read review
