My boys are super picky, partially because, I allowed them to and partially because they know what they like and don't like. But wanting pasta, every damn day? Really??!
Enter baby led weaning for the baby. You can read all about it here. It doesn't mean weaning off of nursing (don't worry, I plan to keep that up as long as I did boys if she'll let me and since she won't take a bottle, I'm thinking we'll be a-ok in that department) But letting your baby eat real food from the get go. In the hopes of introducing a big variety of flavors early. Meaning--please God let her not be as picky as her brothers.
I'm no expert, so I won't go into too many details on what you can/can't have etc. If I was a first time Mom, I'm not sure I would venture into this World because it can be a little nerve racking watching them, and I am still not completely positive we'll be sticking with it because well, purees are so much easier and waaaay less messy. But with a million other things I need to be doing and tending to, steaming, pureeing, storing baby food is not on my list of things to do!
It's been about 2 weeks that we've done BLW. We started with avocado and broccoli. She's now had avocado, broccoli, banana, apple, green beans, sweet potato, chicken, steak, eggs, Mexican quinoa, meatballs and bean and cheese breakfast taco. Broccoli being her favorite and the breakfast taco coming in hot. Total Kennan.
Kaya grunts and hums when she eats too. Sounds about right. The boys love watching her eat and are quick to make sure she's not gagging etc which she does do (yikes!) but we're having so much fun with BLW, so for now we'll be keeping it up!
