Sorry didn't answer this on the day - I would say take your time, 6 months is very early and the saying goes, 'food is for fun until they are 1' - let her experiment and keep offering her a variety of foods. Baby led weaning by Gill Rapley is great. xxx

Thanks Amber! x

Sorry I did not get time to answer this Charlie - I think it is another huge seismic shift just like going from no children to one baby! But you will handle it, just like you handled going from 0 to 1. It IS pretty hectic, I won't lie to you! Try to get as much support in place as possible beforehand. The tough transition time doesn't last long, either, important to remember that you will come out the other side before you know it! Good luck! xxx

Thanks! When I was writing the book I got interested in finding out about the time between contractions and how much of labour was actually spent NOT in pain. That's not to say that labour is not painful, but I thought it might be nice for pregnant women who are usually pretty scared to think about labour in a new way and realise that you are not in non stop agony ALL the time! (if you are - and it does sometimes happen - it usually means your baby is in a difficult position). Anyway to cut a long story short I did the maths for a normal straightforward labour and was amazed to discover that only around 23% of labour is spent having contractions and the other 77% of time you are not in pain at all! That's the short version - the long answer is in the Positive Birth Book! xxx
