Recently, my six-year-old went through a phase of worrying about dying. She asked how it felt, and whether you can move and if your eyes are closed. She told me that her worry about dying seeped into everything she did – nudging at her consciousness while she was watching TV, reading or trying to nod off to sleep.
If your baby is coming up to weaning age, you might be wondering where to start. Which flavours will your child feel drawn towards, and which will they spit out? Should you wear a smile or a raincoat? Is it best to start with fruit or vegetables, invest in a gallon of baby rice, choose baby-led weaning, or just throw your hands up in the air and admit you don’t have a clue?
