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.

big dinner

she must be starting to feel better. i've not seen her eat so much before.
at lunch tom defrosted some of the butter bean and spinach mash for her, which she ate from the spoon and on trusty rice cakes. at dinner, we sat and watched in amazement as first an organix corn ring, then 4 pieces of steamed courgette were munched, chewed and sucked. then, i defrosted a cube of the banana and mango puree from yesterday and mixed it with some baby rice. she took spoon after spoon of it and licked each one clean until the whole lot had gone! i think we have reached the point of no return!

the way i see it, it's still blw as she's taking the food and putting it into her mouth herself. she's still eating finger foods too, so hopefully the puree/texture thing shouldn't be an issue.
