Weaning

I can't believe bump is 4 months already it has gone so quickly but in a weird way it feels like he's always been here, I'm sure every parent knows what I mean by that?

So as some of you may know I have 4 children bump being the youngest and my eldest is almost 16 now.  When it comes to weaning I have done it exactly the same starting at 4 months using packets/jars ( I feel I may be hearing tuts and sighs now ) until I feel they are ready enough to eat 'proper' food.

Bump has been taking a real interested for about a month now to the point of crying when everyone else has dinner and he can't have any, so now he's 4 months I have been trying him with some baby rice and I've been surprised that he hasn't taking too eating as well as the girls did.  He hasn't been to keen on it, I guess maybe he needs to get used to it and it's only been a few days.



I had considered the thought of not using jars/packets etc and cooking for him too but I wouldn't have a clue what to make him? What can he eat? Etc etc and I don't own a blender which I guess would be a necessity.

So I would love to hear how everyone else has weaned their babies? I would really appreciate all your opinions advice etc

Speech Delay

So bump is now 4 and he is having problems with his speech I'm at the point now where I'm thinking did I do something wrong? will he ever talk? and I just don't know the answers which is frustrating me so I can only imagine how frustrating it is for him.

His speech started off fine the usual mama, dad, dog etc then it just seemed to stop and no more progress was made and I was too worried at first because my eldest daughter who's almost 20 now didn't really say all that much until she started nursery.

By the time it came to his 2 year review I was slightly concerned and spoke with the health visitor about it and was referred to speech therapy, we waited a while for that and they only saw him once where the speech therapist sat and played with him and gave me things to do at home with him.

We did attempt for him to start nursery last April but it didn't go too well and he didn't go anymore, he is quite a handful and they wouldn't let him stay the whole s…

potty training a 4 year old

So as I said in my previous post about speech delay bump is now 4 and still not potty trained, I started off potty training at 2 and its just been a struggle ever since, I feel like I've hit a brick wall and I just don't know what to do anymore.

he wont sit on the potty or the toilet, have tried everything to encourage him, books, dvds haven't tried a reward chart because he would have no interest in that.  Took his nappy away but he will just wet or pooh himself and not care.

He wears a nappy to nursery and he is due to start reception in September, what am I going to do send him to school in a nappy? I cant do that, I'm hoping and praying he's just going to decide to do it on his own but he is quite happy still wearing a nappy with no prompt to change him if he's done a pooh.

I'm at a loss and feel like a total failure, I've potty trained his sisters perfectly fine so why cant I do it?
