Babygirl seems to have decided that she is ready for more than just milk in her life – she grabbed a bit of pepper off my plate at the weekend and happily had a chew on it. When we offered her a bit of banana to see if she was really interested in solids she fell on it like a starving velociraptor and it disappeared in record time!
So we are moving on a stage and back into the world of baby led weaning (“BLW”) which we sort of followed when Toddlergirl moved onto solid foods. I blogged about it a while back because it was such a success and made our lives a lot easier.
So this time around we’ll be doing the same thing – in fact because I’m still a bit worried about Babygirl’s dodgy tummy (she’s still the sickest baby anyone knows and she seems to have issues with various things I eat) I’m even keener to do it this way – by following BLW she will eat what she fancies and can put in her mouth herself and hopefully we’ll avoid us over feeding her, giving her stuff she can’t deal with developmentally and if things don’t agree with her she can easily spit them out!
And of course I’m going to blog about it – this is our diary of our BLW experience and how it worked for us!
If you want to read more about baby led weaning, what to feed them, how to do it and even to join a forum so you can chat with others doing the same thing, there’s a great site, called babyledweaning !
I wonder if I might trouble you for a minute – there a little bloggy award season going on and if you haven’t voted already I wonder if I could ask you to consider nominating me. I’d really appreciate it a lot and if you were short of blogs for some of the categories I have lots in my blogroll over there on the right.
