Ok, so I think I need to be honest with myself and acknowledge that I’ve started weaning Daisy at five months. Virtually every day in the past week or so, I’ve offered her some kind of fruit to taste. It’s very, very early introductions – just single pieces of melon, apple or nectarine, only ever one ‘stick’ per session. But she is most certainly having a real good explore of their taste and texture. She keeps a tight hold and licks, sucks and gnaws away with her gums.
Today I found myself reserving a few slices of my nectarine at breakfast time, for her to try later. But then I had second thoughts about the mess (she’s already had an early morning bath today), so I ate them myself at lunchtime. There is a bit of Grandad Phil’s homegrown cucumber waiting for her in the fridge for teatime though. I think we are definitely off the mark!
