As you know I love to bring you guys a good giveaway and my latest isn’t going to disappoint you at all – especially if you are about to start a weaning journey with your little one.
It’s hard to believe that Hugo is now 17 months old. I remember the day he was born like it was yesterday and I can even remember announcing our pregnancy and how anxious I felt about becoming a mum to a newborn again. The past year and a bit have seen us on quite a journey since Hugo’s arrival but it has also been the most rewarding time too. This time last year we were about to embark on our weaning journey and I remember the time well! Weaning is such an exciting moment in your little one’s life and if you are at that phase you will be interested to hear that I have partnered with Doidy to bring you this fantastic giveaway.
Doidy is recommended by professionals, trusted by parents and has led ‘Weaning by Design’ for over 70 years. Doidy are the makers of the famous open slanted Doidy Cup and the new Doidy Bowl with its super-suction base and high-lip to aid baby-led weaning.
Starting to wean your baby can be a confusing time and we know that fussy eating can be a phase that many infants go through. It is important to give your baby a good experience as they try new tastes and textures. Doidy Weaning is on hand to support baby-led weaning as you introduce new tastes and flavours carefully in the early stages to provide your little one with a nutritious and pleasurable start.
In line with NHS guidelines, Doidy recommends using an open cup from around 6 months of age for drinks. With its uniquely slanted design the Doidy Cup helps your baby learn to drink naturally and aids the transition from breast or bottle to cup. The use of a bottle should be discontinued as soon as possible and by 1 year old. The Doidy Bowl is designed to help develop motor skills, with a slanted high lip on one side to allow infants to scoop food up and load more easily onto a spoon, making it perfect for finger foods, purees or soups. And the super-suction base keeps it firmly in place on the highchair or table to minimise messy spills! The Doidy range helps your child to learn to feed and drink independently, learn more about Doidy Weaning here www.doidyweaning.com.
So, the big question is what to put in your Doidy Cup and Bowl?! My First Flavours is here to the rescue with a comprehensive set of personalised weaning charts. The My First Flavours charts capture your baby’s very first flavours and include 35 stickers of fruits and vegetables to plan and track the start of your baby’s weaning journey. The charts can also be personalised with your baby’s name and photo, making a lovely keepsake. There is also an allergen tracker, so that you can keep a log of any key allergen foods that you decide to try with your baby and capture whether any symptoms were present.

Doidy knows that sometimes it can be a challenge to encourage children to ‘eat their greens’. That’s why it’s best to start offering vegetables, including plenty of green veggies, when you first introduce solid foods. Vegetables are not only packed with vitamins and minerals, but also contain lots of different flavour profiles such as bitter and sour tastes to help expand your baby’s palate from day one. It’s also a good idea to look at different and interesting ways to serve vegetables that will appeal to infants.
As part of this wonderful giveaway, I have a fantastic set of weaning accessories to give away to one lucky winner including:
- A Doidy Cup (choose red, blue or pink)
- A Doidy Bowl (choose from red, blue or pastel pink)
- 3 My First Flavours weaning charts (including a My First Flavours chart, My First Flavour Combinations chart, 2 sheets of stickers and 1 Allergen Tracker).
3 runners up will each be sent a Doidy Cup.
