What a week of very bad, sad news when we were all moved and shocked by wicked behaviour of three men. It will take a long time to reflect upon the impact the last three terrorist attacks will have on our country and in deed the world as many of those who died were tourists.

However, as we know we must strive to be happy in our lives and continue to be kind to those around us and I have been so uplifted by two mother-centred practitioners I met this week.

Laura of and Lene of have fantastic local practices supporting women via Osteopathy at Fresh Ground on corner of Northcote Road and Pelvic Floor exercises at home via the Body Connect website.

When should you start introducing your baby to solid food? So much to consider in this crazy world of TOO much information available - how do you sift out the fake info!

Key things to look out for are:

Developing a pincer grasp with thumb and forefinger

Grabs objects and puts then into their mouth

Baby able to sit unsupported

Loss of tongue-thrust reflex

Do not introduce solid food before baby is 17 weeks old and ideally not before 6 months old, but some babies have the above skills from 4 months so follow your instincts

Then consider how do you want baby's meals to fit in or around your family meals?

Remember food is fun until one and this is the full 5 senses experience for baby, it's not just about the taste but

what they see - orange or green?

how food sounds - a soft swallow or a bit of a munch

what does is smell like - full flavoured or mild

and the messy bit what does it feel like - good to throw around!
