I was apprehensive about the concept of babyled weaning until I read the book, “Babyled Weaning: helping your baby to love good food“.
We started Wyatt on solids when he was 6 months, 4 days old. Before then, he was exclusively breastfed. He took to feeding himself like a champ! I’ve been so surprised at how well it’s gone… minus the mess.
What he’s eaten so far:
- Asian Pear
- Green beans
- Sweet potato
- Scrambled eggs
- Homemade turkey meatballs
- Homemade hamburger
- MumMum rice crackers
He HAS to feed himself. It’s non-negotiable. With the yogurt, I put it on the spoon and hand it to him to feed himself. I tried to give him a non-rice cereal one morning and he hated it! He spit every bite out.
Right now, we’re just doing 2 meals and maybe a small snack. He’s still nursing a decent amount, so I’m confident he’s getting all he needs.
Did you try babyled weaning? Any recipes or foods you would recommend?
