The Weaning Workshop – taking the stress out of introducing solid food
Weaning can be a time of confusion and conflicting information so this session aims to provide you with good information, discussion, tips and ideas for introducing solid food to ease any stress or concerns about weaning your baby. It is also your chance to ask questions about moving onto this next stage with your baby.
You can come along with your baby from about 3-4 months old, in preparation for weaning, or you may have already started with your older baby but would like to know more about it.
This session is based on up-to-date research and experience and it has been designed to prepare you for the options as well as to boost your confidence so you feel able to do what works for you and your baby.
Workshops are limited to 4-6 spaces so the sessions are informal, friendly and helpful.
This weaning workshop will look at:
- how you can do it – purees, mush and baby-led, plus a combination of methods
- food and meal ideas
- what can help and what you can expect
- the practical stuff – equipment, mess and keeping it safe
The session includes a guide to weaning and ongoing support as you get started.
“I felt so much better after this session – it is more straightforward than I thought and now I have lots of ideas for food and a better idea of where to start.”
“I needed a bit of a confidence boost because my baby wasn’t into meals – you have reassured me about going at my baby’s pace and I have calmed right down.”

With Janine Smith
A specialist in pregnancy & birth, early parenting and parent wellbeing
I have worked with parents since 2002 and, as a practitioner with professional training and experience, I am trusted to provide a balance of reliable knowledge, non-judgemental support and much needed reassurance.
My approach is not about telling you what to do – it is to listen, to provide you with the opportunity to ask questions, it is about providing ideas and information, helping you to formulate plans and to find what works for you and for your family.
The focus is on your wellbeing in pregnancy, for birth, as a parent and as you, the person behind the parent and I have created informal but effective small group and 1:1 sessions to benefit you.
