That’s the name Ella’s Kitchen is giving to the period of time between six and 12 months old when your baby starts to display some distinctive characteristics, like wearing more food than they eat and tipping everything onto the floor. Repeatedly.
So how to do you identify a weanager? Here are 10 signs your baby is a weanager:
1. Your baby won’t let you leave them, ever.
2. Your baby ends up wearing more food than they eat.
3. Your baby loves to empty stuff.
4. Your baby puts EVERYTHING in their mouth.
5. Your baby does a great impression of you.
6. Your baby becomes a big fan of dropping things.
7. Your baby will have a favourite food one week, then go off it the next.
8. Your baby enjoys testing out their new pincer grip, even on you.
Regular readers will know my nipples are testament to that.
9. Your baby starts spontaneously waving hello or goodbye. Finally! A characteristic that’s cute and doesn’t involve pain/cleaning/wiping/clearing up afterwards…although I haven’t managed to catch this on camera.
10. Your baby makes their mark on the house.
We tick nine out of the 10 boxes so I think it’s safe to say I have a fully-fledged weanager.
How about you?
