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.

feeling awake - hooray!

she just chucked all her breakfast on the floor, so no breakfast this morning. in an attempt to give myself more than 2 seconds of typing time, i have given her a toy that attaches to her clothes - she keeps trying to chuck it on the floor but it just dangles over the edge. i wish i could find food that did that...

on the advice of a person on a babycentre forum (where i get most of my advice at the moment!) i have purchased "the no-cry sleep solution" by elizabeth pantley. so, for the past 24 hours we have been keeping a log of sleep and nap times in an attempt to work out why charlotte is still waking for so long and so often at night. unfortunately for the book, and hopefully fortunately for us, charlotte was very good last night. she only woke to be fed at 10pm and 4.15am and both feeding sessions added up to 65 minutes - a far cry from the 4ish hours of night-nursing that we had seen.

anyway, i shall continue to work through the book and see if we can improve things further still - the ultimate goal is that she is not needing to nurse after 7.30pm. we'll see.

wish i'd done something about it sooner! if i had this book instead of gina ford from birth, maybe things would be a bit different now.
