Dairy free Weaning around 8-10 months

By this age most babies have usually mastered the art of chewing and are managing more lumpy textures and soft finger foods. They will also soon tell you if they are not hungry or don't like something by instantly swiping it away from them, usually ending up in a mess on the floor. By this point you will have worked up to three meals a day and increased the variety and volume of food you give them. This is when weaning becomes really exciting as you can experiment with a wide range of new textures and flavours. Below I have outline a rough guide to meal options for this stage. However, remember every child is different and it is important to go at their own pace.
