First Birthday Gift Ideas

My sons first birthday is only a few weeks away. I can’t believe how quick his first year has flown by! It’s scary to think that he will be one but also that I will have a 1 and 2 year old! I’ve been struggling to think of ideas for his presents so thought I’d do a bit of research online and share my findings with you in case you’re in the same position as me and have no idea what gifts to buy a one year old.

Dairy Free Breastfeeding

At 6 weeks old, my son was diagnosed with a possible dairy intolerance. As I am breastfeeding him, that meant a dairy free diet for me. Not having dairy is a lot harder than I ever imagined it could be. I hadn’t realised that milk or milk products is in a lot more food than you’d expect it to be.

Meal Ideas for a 1 year old

I started weaning my daughter at 5-6 months old. She would have weetabix for breakfast which she absolutely loved and still does now at 2 years old! At lunch times, I normally gave her finger foods, I wanted to give her more of a variation so I put together a few lunch ideas so she had a mixture of lunches rather than the same each day. Dinner times she usually had a jar of baby food, which was good whilst she was getting used to new textures but now she is eating really well I wanted to start giving her proper food for dinner too. I struggled to think of tasty ideas to start off with I but eventually came up with her own little menu and thought I would share to help any other parents out there trying to think of different meal ideas.
