we had pasta with tomato sauce and cheese for lunch today. i made a sauce with tinned tomatoes, garlic, basil and a lo-salt stock cube. pretty simple really, and i had to add salt to mine as it was a bit strange without it. i grated soya cheese to go on top but chickened out and had normal cheese on mine.
charlotte slurped up and swallowed 3 pieces of pasta and sucked the sauce off loads more. i was so impressed with her. she did gag on one bit and spat it out, but still went back for more. hooray!
she wasn't so impressed with the boring old squash and broccoli chunks that i steamed for tea, but did have a good amount of her alpro peach yoghurt. she's still coughing loads and if she's still bad after the weekend she'll be off to see the doctor.
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.
