finding weaning so hard with two!

hi twinnies and more!

have started weaning this week properly with first tastes etc, but finding it so hard with both of them yelling for it at the same time! Does it get easier when you have them in a high chair? I currently have them in their rockers and trying to balance two bowls and spoons and feed them is a nightmare! I thought I was so smart getting them to eat at the same time when it was just bottles, but now I am regretting it!

Any tips??!!

RE: finding weaning so hard with two!

Am I being thick?!

Why not 1 bowl, 2 spoons?

because big boy would end up eating the lot.. at least with two bowls I can see who has had what!

have seen in Tesco one bowl with a divider that could solve a few problems..!

highchairs only work if they can sit up independently easily enough!

Hmmm


feed one at a time - or delay the evening Chow time until DH comes home!

The special feeding spoons are narrower and are good because you can shovel er place the food in the mouth - letting them have a chew on the spoon

Hun my best advice to you is one bowl one spoon!!! It is so much easier and lets face it they are that close they share germs anyway!! I fed like this for ages one mouth full each and try not to fuss about one having more, they will equal themselves out eventually!! xx

Bringing back all those weaning stages with twins!

one bowl, one spoon defo! Molly would always be the moaner (still is!!) for more food & I wasn't rushing enough for her! but they have to learn to wait. just do a bigger bowl of food & then big boy will have more?

I know someone who did 2 bowls 2 spoons, madness!!! she looked such in a pickle until me & my twin friend said one bowl one spoon!!

I fed mine at the same time, everything at the same time. otherwise it take forever!

I fed mine in bouncers then when they sat up (7 mths) in highchairs & it was easier at that age, as it's a new thing for them & they found it exciting!! I nearly poured yogurt over Molly's head once as she was so inpaitent!!! :O

Could you give them some finger food at the same time? Chunks of banana to hold etc.. Or even just a spoon. I do this with DD when she is playing up when I feed her and it distracts her attention so I can shovel the food in! And before anyone slates me (not that any of you would), she mostly feeds herself now with sandwiches etc.. but at 5 months or so, I was spoon feeding.

No we have that mood already. Its the 'I'm tired and nothing, but nothing is going to stop me from being grumpy. Sing to me all you want, shush me, feed me my favourite things... but you're wasting your time. I'm in bad mood and I'm going to make sure you suffer too' mood. What is she going to be like as a teenager?

Sorry for thread-jacking. I'll go now.

This brings back memories - I used to feed my 2 with one bowl and one spoon in high chairs next to each other.

You wait until one of them starts blowing raspeberries with a mouthful making the other one laugh and visa versa - mealtimes used to take forever lmao - funnily enough I didn't find it funny at the time!!
