This recipe was a life saver for me and Aaliyah! And it’s delicious!
Gently coated in cinnamon and nutmeg, this yummy sweet potato recipe may help baby with teething pain. It certainly calmed and soothed Aaliyah when she was teething. Nutmeg has widely been used in dentistry for treating pain in teeth (well the compound it contains has been – eugenol). Cinnamon contains analgesic properties – natural pain reliever. So both combined, will have excellent benefits for your little one.

This is an exceptionally yummy meal babies and toddlers will both love! In fact this was my little ones favourite curry and she still requests it for dinner. So these days I cook this curry up as a family meal but simply increase the levels of spice and amount of chicken and veg to keep everyone happy.
This meal is great for older babies – around 10 months of age and is perfectly nutritionally balanced. So not only is the taste fab, it’s a mean curry with immune strengthening ingredients. Here’s the breakdown:
Yum! I love this lasagne. It is by far the best vegetable lasagne I have made. The vegetables are roasted so there is no watery sauce floating around at the bottom of the dish. It’s also a great way to get some hidden vegetables into your little ones meals.
Admittedly there is a little more faffing involved with this recipe compared to my usual no-fuss recipes (I used about three different pots), so I’d recommend this recipe for a weekend in particular for a hearty Sunday evening meal. It’s totally worth the extra washing it creates. Your family will love it! And worst case, after all that hard work, get your hubby and kids to help out with the washing.
If your baby is between four and six months, you may be thinking of weaning her onto solid food. If you’re unsure whether your baby is ready, there are a few signs to look out for which will make it a little easier to decide.
