Baby Led Weaning works for us because firstly my children, neither of them, like to be fed by anyone else. I think sometimes it’s thought that babies HAVE to have mush which if you feed them at 3 or 4 months as has been the advice in the past then that might be the case but it’s not recommended these days that we start to wean our babies until they are 6 months old and by this time they are quite capable of dealing with more than puree. I certainly find it a lot easier to let my baby get on with things and explore the food on his own and he’s happy so we’re going with it!
Most of the time I give him what we’re eating ourselves if it’s appropriate but obviously some foods are just too small and some have to be adapted. I also do make him food just for him that is easy to hold and easy to eat but it is ideas for this and ways to adapt food that I have stumbled against many brick walls when looking for on the internet. I have then, been forced, despite my cooking ineptitude to come up with my own ideas and recipes. Some of them I’m actually rather pleased with so thought when I come up with a recipe I really like that I’ll publish it on my blog. So, these posts are my own baby led weaning recipes and other baby led weaning things!
