lunch was a sandwich made with the non-dairy cream cheese and apricot compote, which the monkey really enjoyed. she then ate a defrosted cube of the mango and banana puree with such gusto that i wish i had defrosted more. i had missed her 11am milk feed, so she must have been really hungry!
we had a breakthrough on the nursing to sleep at lunchtime. she fed and then rolled over and kicked about for a bit before falling asleep without a murmer. it was amazing! my long term plan is to get her to fall asleep in the cot by herself and i think this is a great move in that direction.
finally, tea was steamed courgette and a mad mix that only a weaning mum with shopping to do could concoct - avocado, non-dairy cream cheese and some of the banana and mango puree to sweeten it. she loved it. i'm going to put mango in everything from now on.
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.
