I have a confession…. All three of my daughters had no interest in mushy baby food. Baby cereals, jarred food, and homemade purees. Trust me ” I tried it all. They are all strong independent women, and they had no interest in me feeding them. Which also means that none of them wanted fruits and veggies.
Thank goodness for Cheerios.
In our house we practised what I have now learned is called Ã…”Baby led weaning Ã‚Â:
Baby-led weaning (often also referred to as BLW) is a method of adding complementary foods to a baby’s diet of breastmilk. Baby-led weaning allows babies to control their solid food consumption by “self-feeding” from the very beginning of their experiences with food. The term weaning should not be taken to imply giving up breastmilk, but simply the introduction of foods other than breastmilk.
Thankfully Cheerios are recommended as a first finger food by 4 out of 5 pediatricians.
