Baby Led Weaning

Growing healthy babies with healthy appetites


Boomer has been born into a family with a long held belief in the health giving properties of starting the day with a couple of weetabix. This conviction has been passed down through generations.  This is from her fathers side I think the flaky logs are particularly loathsome.

Anyway, so I gave Boomer a dry weetabix to play with and she scoffed almost a whole one, she sucked on it chewed and generally mushed it up until it was gone.


A word of warning dried weetabix bits are like some kind of cement – they give a pebble dashed appearance. Boomer is going to require an extra half hour in the tub tonight.

I don’t really know what the solution would be perhaps immediate soaking after weetabix but that’s a bit of a faff.

I think the best solution is to let her enjoy weetabix with her papa and then let papa deal with the mess.

    I also hate weetabix although hubby and big bro (nearly three) have it every day for breakfast. As Kids we once ate it spread with butter in a french motel bedroom while my Mum and Dad went for a four course slap-up meal. May explain my enduring distain for it! But with butter might be quite BLW friendly? Or cream cheese, or yoghurt – the possiblilities are endless.
    Main reason for this post was for other breakfast cereal ideas? how does shreaded wheat go down? big ones or little ones preferred? I'm off to find a non-nestle version but want to get the optimum sort!

    I've heard of shreddies being used as treats / sweets / biscuits.
    I also ate Weetabix with butter in my childhood! I can only eat the ghastly stuff if soaked in hot milk with lashings of sugar so ends up being not so healthy..

    oooh weetabix are delicious with butter, it's the only way i can tolerate them. i found the small shreddies worked well, and there are also mini oatibix etc which are very sugary but handy for a treat when out and about.
    the japanese have sushi for breakfast, or so i hear. i'd love that, i'm not a fan of cereals.
