Weaning twins, triplets or more

Weaning is another milestone in your babies’ development.  To help you prepare for weaning, Tamba has put together the following resources:

  • Weaning factsheet
  • Weaning webinar
  • Video Clips – listen to parents talking about topics including dealing with the mess, top tips, what methods they used eg, baby led, purees or a combination of both
  • Twinline – if you would like to talk to someone in person do call Twinline on 0800 138 0509

Our weaning factsheet has information about when to begin weaning, how parents can manage with two or more, top tips from parents and other support available. Click to download.

We also have a weaning webinar for parents who have multiples aged 3-6 months who are thinking of weaning in the next few months. The webinar aims to answer questions that many parents have including:

  • When should I introduce solids – breakfast, lunch dinner?
  • How often do my babies need solids in the first few weeks of weaning?
  • Where should I feed my babies?
  • What should I do if my baby/babies are not interested in food?
  • When should I introduce – wheat, dairy, eggs, children/red meat, fish?
  • What foods should I avoid?
  • What are the challenges of weaning two or more babies?

Visit our webinar page to find out more and book onto our next available date.
