Let’s start with the Good:
I actually managed to eat breakfast at breakfast time, around 10 AM. Usually I eat a bit later, when my son takes a nap, and then I’m usually starving by that time. Today we had breakfast together, because I already prepped his food (papaya and steamed yam) last night.
I obviously have very little patience to re-take bad or blurry photos… sorry folks, but that’s me. And that Nutella is so bad for me, but I enjoyed it…
If you’re wondering, whether we’re spoon feeding or doing baby-led weaning, I’d say it’s a combo of both. Our son get’s mashed fruit and veggies, as well as cereal, but we also give him small soft pieces of food to feed himself with almost every meal or so (we’re not following an exact schedule).
I am amazed how our son picks up pieces of food, examines them and then slowly guides them into his mouth (which he can’t see!) to eat them.
This boy will eat almost anything. He’s a foodie.
Parents: Did you give baby-led weaning a try or did you make your own baby purees? After trying jarred baby food on my baby shower last August, I’m making my son’s food fresh daily. I thought, why should he get something that I wouldn’t eat myself? Only recently I started to steam bigger quantities of fruits and veggies to store in the fridge for a couple of days. He hasn’t had a single jar of baby puree yet, but we are going on a long trip this summer and I guess store bought food will be making an appearance.
Off to clean up our mess!
