i used the lo-salt stock cubes to make a chicken and carrot casserole this afternoon. i am determined to get more food into the monkey as she has been very hungry when nursing for the past few days. for this reason i pulsed (not smooth, more like a lumpy puree) the casserole and gave it to her on a spoon.
not by any stretch of the imagination was this baby led weaning, and i am going to have to admit defeat on the strict guidelines as she did eat it and that was the most important thing for me today. i am not about to stop offering her finger foods, but i am also not going to rule out spoons either. she does sometimes take the spoon and feed herself, so i will encourage that too.
there, i said it.
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.
