We asked our lovely Facebook followers what their tips for weaning twins, triplets or more are, and they’ve come up with some great ones to help.
Do you have more? We’d love you to share them over on our Facebook post for parents that are looking to start soon.
Prepare yourself for weaning time with these great pieces of advice:
“Try to get the babies to sit at the family table from an early age. That way they see you all eating an try to copy”
“Be prepared for them to be more interested in each other’s food, even though theirs is identical”
“Bear in mind that all babies are different. Treat each child as an individual when trying different tastes, textures etc”
Top tips for dealing with the mess:
“Take clothes off for meal times and much as possible, the mess looks worse but is far more manageable. Most of all have fun and don’t stress!!!”
“We used a face cloth when we were at home and then would just throw it in the wash with the bibs etc. This saved money on buying lots of wipes”
“A shower curtain under the high chairs! It’s easy to shake out and wipe down after”
... And last but not least: try to make it as easy as possible for yourself
“I didn’t cook separate meals, they just got bits of what we were eating.”
“My advice would be just try to relax about it, they’ll do it in their own time and do whatever works for you”
“Try not to engage in battles and trust they’ll eat if they’re hungry”
