baby led weaning update …..

I really wish that Lucy would take a bottle or eat food off a spoon.  This baby led weaning method is incredibly time consuming.  If you missed my last post, the emphasis is on “baby led” with Lucy. It’s her way or no way! Lucy just will not eat food off a spoon or swallow baby food.  No matter how good my spoon airplane noises are, she’s not having it.

It try to give Lucy food two or three times a day now.  Usually at breakfast time, when she wakes up, once after her nap and at dinner time.  This sometimes leads to three baths a day.

I am pretty sure that she will go to college weaned and eating with a fork and knife but right now this OCD mama is having a lot of trouble at mealtimes!

In the meantime, I am working on some baby led weaning recipes for the whole family… coming soon.

Below is Lucy eating meatballs and rice.

    Look how sweet! Covered in rice. We did this with my son. We would cut up our dinner to tiny tiny pieces when he was this young and let him explore. He picked up using a spoon and a fork all on his own, now at 17 months he feeds himself every meal. Sometimes there are days he is cover in a portion of the meal.. but slowly and surely they learn! You are doing wonderful Mom!
