Welcome to Weaning.ie
My name is Cathy Monaghan. I am a Senior Paediatric Dietitian and have two young children. I established weaning.ie to empower parents through complementary feeding and going on to feed a family.
An antenatal class prepares you for birth, let weaning.ie help you understand the nutritional needs of your baby and feeding a family.
I discuss the nutrients that your baby needs, the quantities and the best sources. I discuss the foods you are already eating and which are suitable for your baby, we look at suitable finger foods. We discuss food labels and food trickery/what to watch out for. We look at commerical baby foods. I discuss all the common problems such as fussy eating, constipation, iron deficiency anaemia etc. and how to prevent them.
Good eaters are not born, they are created. Weaning is a process and is an important part of your child's development, not only nutritionally but developmentally and socially. Getting it right sets a great foundation for future health.
