Stacey Solomon hits back after mum-shamers told her she was weaning 5 month old baby Rex ‘too early’ – The Sun
STACEY Solomon has hit back after mum-shamers told her she was giving five-month-old baby Rex solid food too early.
The 30-year-old star said she wanted to "clear up some of the myths" about weaning – even drafting in a nutrition expert.
Speaking on Instagram, she revealed they were preparing to give Rex, her only child with Joe Swash, a pot of mashed broccoli.
Stacey said: "Last time I spoke about weaning, lots of people were concerned about him not being exactly six months yet and I just thought I'd clear up some of the myths."
Nutrition expert Charlotte Stirling-Reed added: "The recommendation is around six months of age and that's absolutely fine – Rex is around six months. It's all about looking out for the signs he is ready."
Loose Women panellist Stacey asked: "And you think he's ready?"
The expert replied: "Definitely. He can sit up for a little bit, hold up his head and neck steady.
"He can reach out and get food all by himself. We are good to go."
Stacey posted a picture of Rex looking by turns disgusted and delighted by the mashed-up broccoli meal.
She wrote: "He absolutely loved playing with the food and his spoon, I’m not sure what he thought about the eating part.
"His face when he ate it was the funniest thing ever. I cant wait to introduce loads of different foods and have him at the dinner table with us.
"Well done Rexy we love you to the moon and back."
