Weaning starts the very first moment you give your baby something other than milk to eat. This introduction to new foods starts with just a small teaspoon of food and builds up to three solid meals a day, a task that sounds simple but the truth is, getting it right can be more difficult than you think. We have created The Bumbles™ Cookery Club to help you and support you through this time.

Stage 1 : Baby Led Weaning & The Weaning Window
You have 6 months to give your little one a good start in life, not only is your baby growing fast but they have some very specific nutritional needs that you need to fulfill.
In Stage 1 we look at the introduction of first foods, we discuss the foods to avoid and the reasons behind this, as well as the practical side of preparing, cooking and storing baby food.
Stage 2 : Creating an Explorer
Mom, it’s time to introduce baby to more texture and delicious new flavours!
Stage 2 focuses on the nutritional content more carefully, as beyond 6 months babies rely on their food to give them the energy and goodness that they need to grow. We discuss the question of allergies, introduction of foods and the importance of texture change, self feeding and making nutrition easy.
Stage 3 : Becoming Independent
The words “just smile and wave” come to mind, as the next few months it's all about letting baby take the spoon and master the art of self feeding!
Bumbles™ loves babies being more independent, introducing wonderfully strong flavours and moving on to get them chewing and Stage 3 is all about what we love. We discuss the super food league and focus on baby's nutritional needs.
Stage 4 : Toddler Years & Joining the Family
The Bumbles™ Cookery Club celebrates the fact that the weaning mission is nearly complete, no more mushy food and we bet our bottom dollar that you are happy to see the back of it! The next steps are about including your toddler into the family meals and introducing structure into meal times.
