HI, I'm Natasha and I created this website Mumsknowbest.com for all of us to use as a community. I am passionate about cooking from scratch and since starting a family myself I want to cook delicious healthy food for all of us to enjoy. However I get bored of the recipes I make and want inspiration from other mumma's out there too! fffI have written 4 cook books Honestly Healthy, Honestly Healthy for Life, Honestly Healthy Cleanse and Honestly Healthy in a Hurry and when falling pregnant with my little boy Rudy i decided that I wanted to take a break which I did for a year and now this is my new baby! I hope you enjoy using the site as much as I do. test

There are a few products I found really helpful during my weaning process for when you are home and when you are out and about.
At about 4 months when he could sit up I started to put him into a high chair and play with a spoon and bowl so he became use to it.
I brought the Stokke Tripp Trapp high chair and love it (it even has his name engraved on the back) and will last him until he can sit at the table on an adult chair.
If you are doing baby led weaning as well I recommend a overall as well as a bib! I brought these ones from HippyChick and bib from Cheeky Rascals
For when you are out and about a portable high chair is essential. I have been seen to use it attached to a park bench to give him his lunch! So many places don’t have high chairs and if your little one is as independent as Rudy they won’t want to sit on your lap and you won’t want them to either as it gets very messy! I got the Mountain Buggy Pod.
When you are out you need wipes! Lots and lots of them. I wanted to use a product that was natural and so found Water Wipes and hand sanitiser which is an organic natural one.
The ezpz sticky plates are brilliant for baby led weaning when you are out. I have the mini mat and keep it in my changing bag all the time.
Weaning is messy, really really messy especially if you let them feed themselves which I think is great for development. Rudy loves nothing more than to squidge food through his fingers and the enjoyment on his face is wonderful to watch.
There are times when they just won’t eat because of teething. When this was the case with Rudy I used reusable pouches from Nom Nom and he was much happier that way. A few distractions also helped like a bubble machine, music and feeding the dog of course! The lovely instagram community gave me some great ideas like using a metal spoon for him to feed himself which also got him eating again for some reason. When it was awful cartoons were the only thing that worked! Us mums have got to do what we have to do to get a good night sleep!!!
