Stacey Solomon hits back after mum-shamers told her she was weaning 5 month old baby Rex ‘too early’

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 nutrition expert Charlotte Stirling-Reed.

She answered people who said she was weaning Rex early

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.”

Charlotte 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 😂.

At times little Rex didn’t appear completely sold on solids

“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 🖤.”
