Weaning

Evidence based weaning workshops and fun 'baby brunches' to help you confidently introduce your baby to solid food.

Weaning your baby

As your baby develops, it’s time to start thinking about weaning. There's so much information out there, it can be hard to know where to start. That's where BabyBien comes in - we're here to support you and provide you with evidence based info to help you approach this part of your baby's development feeling confident and informed.

The starting solids workshop is the perfect way to guide you through all the information available and help you introduce your baby to solid foods in a relaxed & confident way. Or join us at one of our 'Baby Brunch' events and have a chat with other new parents while your baby explores some new tastes.

Baby Brunches

A fun way to introduce your baby to new foods while connecting with other new parents.

Suitable for babies from 6 months onwards.

A session for new parents and babies aged 6 months and over. Each session will offer a talk on how to introduce your baby to solid food. You'll then have the opportunity to ask questions and chat with other new parents while your babies tuck into their mini picnic and explore the new tastes on offer.

Each session:

  • Learn about how to introduce your baby to solid foods 
  • Each baby / toddler will have their own individual brunch box packed with nutritious nibbles (there’s no sharing of food or containers to keep you and your little one safe)
  • A great chance to learn about weaning and have a chat with other new parents whilst the babies tuck into their brunch. 
  • I’ll be on hand throughout the session to answer them any queries you may have about weaning
  • All recipes for the food contained in the brunch box will be sent to you so you can cook it yourself at home
  • Please feel free to bring your own refreshments 
  • There’s plenty of parking & baby changing facilities on site
  • Numbers will be strictly limited so make sure you book your place in advance.

Cost:

The one hour session costs £10 per adult & baby.

This cost includes a mini hamper of tasty treats for your little one to try (& take home with you afterwards) along with recipes to try yourself.

Starting Solids Workshop

A 2 hour session for new parents which will guide you through all the information that you need to beging introducing your baby to solid foods. 

What you'll learn:

 Throughout the session we'll look at:

  • when is the right time to start weaning
  • what foods are suitable and how to prepare them
  • how to avoid unhealthy eating habits

The sessions include recipe ideas and provide a non-judgemental and supportive environment for you to explore and ask questions about weaning and feel confident in making the best decisions for your little one.

"Weaning doesn't seem half as daunting now I'm armed with not only menu ideas but the understanding of when my babies are ready to wean and how to approach it in a stress free way for me and my little man!"

"Brilliant course. I feel so much more relaxed about weaning now and clued up on what to do and when."
