Our Introducing Solids workshop covers topics such as when to start weaning, purees and baby-led weaning, and what foods to avoid.

This workshop is led by a qualified NCT Practitioner. Your baby does not have to be breastfed for you to attend the course.

These workshops are designed for a parent or carer to attend with their baby. Anyone responsible for a baby as they face the transition from milk to solid foods is welcome. It does not matter if you have already started giving your baby solids when you come to the course, or if your baby is breastfed or bottle-fed.

Subjects covered generally include:

  • What, where, when and how
  • What to do about milk feeds
  • Allergies
  • Baby-led weaning – skipping purees and starting straight with finger food
