i was mashing some avocado to put in a sandwich for the monkey and i thought i'd also try it on a spoon (seeing how good she has been with spoons recently). i mixed it with some baby rice and rice milk to bulk it out a bit. i gave her the sandwich and she wasn't really bothered with it. i then offered a spoon of the mash and she grabbed it and started eating. unfortunately she took to putting the wrong end into her mouth.
but once she got going there was no stopping her. she ate the whole lot and pretty much ignored the sandwich. she made a serious mess, but i don't mind as she ate so much.
i steamed broccoli for tea which she still won't eat. i then tried pear puree and weetabix again but no luck either. even a bread stick wasn't going down so i gave up and breast fed her instead.
baby led weaning is when you forego the purees and go straight in at the deep end with appropriate finger foods. the gill rapley guidelines for baby led weaning are accessible through our links list. this is our nearly baby led weaning diary. the best place to start is at the bottom and work your way up. enjoy! hilly and charlotte.
