I made the mistake when Roo was starting to wean that she ate at different times to Mr Boo and I. Although we eventually made the transition to the table so we could sit as a family, I do think about all the meal times we lost out on. With Tigger, he slotted into family life and meal times, up to until he became ill with chicken pox and had to be re-weaned which subsequently has led to his fussy eating.
Now that Piglet is weaning, I have made a conscious point to have her at the baby for meals sitting in her highchair. During the day we both sit in the kitchen together enjoying our lunch, then at tea time she is joined by Roo and Tigger (I do think that she prefers their company to mine).
Despite Piglet being my third child I am still very much at a lost when it comes to weaning. I have read many books over the years, many of which make the process very complicated or ask for 101 ingredients in order to make a meal.
