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.

more spoon feeding

this evening charlotte had mashed potato mixed with avocado. she fed herself with a spoon and seemed to eat a fair bit. for lunch i made a mango and banana puree with some rice milk and baby rice to bulk it up. she did feed herself with the spoon, but didn't eat much.
she's back to practically drinking the antibiotics from the syringe. maybe we could feed her expressed milk this way and give me a night off, seeing as bottles are out and cups are still too messy....

why are bottles out?

she refused a bottle of expressed milk for the first time on new year's eve and has never taken one since. it was gutting as tom had been giving her a last feed at night but has been unable to since then. that's why i now have no social life - feeding at 7.00 and 10.30 every night since then.

Argh mate thats pants! I gave up bf at 7months when i was due to go back to work. I had a propper hard time trying to get him to have bottle tried all on the market, took 6weeks. At least over next few months she'll drop some feeds when she's eating more
