Weaning (starting solids as it is now called) is such an important stage of a child’s development but we are often not given enough information to know how to do it well.

I offer a range of weaning and early years services through Weaning Centre. Head over to Weaning Centre for more information about weaning, weaning services and resources to use with your children.

Weaning and Beyond Facebook group

As a bonus, at no extra cost, all my weaning clients get the opportunity to join a closed Facebook group to support them on their weaning and toddler food journey. This allows you to get ideas, ask questions and hear from other parents too. If you want to join this group without doing a course, you can for just £2 a month here.

Previous attendees said:

“Provides you with all information needed to confidently wean your baby” Sarah. Didsbury

“Very informative. Practical but strongly evidenced based” Mum, Manchester

Really informative, very encouraging. Easy to ask questions, very collaborative” Imelda, Stockport

“I highly recommend Aliya’s course. 🙂 Very engaging and a much easier way to take in the information than reading websites and parenting forums, which tend to give slightly conflicting information. The other half and I both enjoyed the sessions, and I felt more confident with my decisions afterwards. My baby’s 12 months old now and we still refer back to her notes sometimes. I also liked the personalised approach that took into account the foods we liked.” Mum, Manchester

If you would like more information or to book a course please contact me on the form below. I usually only operate in the Manchester area but would consider doing courses over Skype too.

I can offer courses to a couple in Manchester if there are not enough parents for a course – please enquire about prices

To find out when the next course is for further information, email porternutritionuk@gmail.com.
