now we have decided to stop worrying about the amount charlotte eats, she has started showing an interest in food again. i'm pleased that she had no reaction to tomato as it has opened up a whole world of new meals for her.
she had pasta with a tomato sauce and melted cheezly (soya cheese) for lunch and after sucking on a few pieces of pasta popped a whole piece into her mouth, chewed it and swallowed it. i was stunned, and am convinced it didn't actually happen! she also had some mashed up papaya/melon/mango as pudding.
she is still waking up hungry in the night, but i guess this is to be expected until she's eating more solids.... it's a slow process.
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.
