So Baby Led Weaning is interesting. Toast and broccoli end up everywhere, but melon, green beans and cucumber aren’t quite so bad. There is still a lot that don’t end up eaten… well none of the green bean was eaten, just chewed and used to wave at people.?
We started weaning Baby H at 6 months. She had a couple of pur?es from 5.5 months, but they were very sporadic. I loved the idea of baby led weaning, but the possibility of choking scared me and I felt quite out of my depth as to what to give her and how (despite reading copious books and googling constantly).
Now 2 months on, I love it, and so does she. She still gets lots of pur?es, mostly down to the fact she loves them, but also the fact that so much BLW food just doesn’t go in her mouth. It gets dropped, flung, squished, spat out, and just disappears. I have no idea where it goes, it might actually be digested. Having said that, we do know some does really go in, just so so so much doesn’t. My post on things parents say when weaning encompasses all this!
I think with baby led weaning you need to remember the BLW coefficient … Here’s how I calculate it:
Yes so actually I think she did fairly well with this, though, I’m not ruling out that I won’t find some extra crumbs as the day goes on.
What do you think? Really, the coefficient should include age as I’m sure (hope?) H’s eating improves!
