We are going the “Baby Led Solids” route with Suspence in regard to weaning; we did the same with Punk & she was a fabulous eater until she hit about two & a half & refused to try anything new. She’s just recently started having the smallest tastes of new foods though which is good.
BLS is where you do away with the mush & give bub manageable pieces of proper food to munch on, squish & throw.
It’s messy. Very messy. But it’s also so much easier than chopping, steaming & mashing, more interesting for the child & helpful in developing their fine motor skills; grape tomato halves can be slippery little suckers.
At not quite seven months, our boy has toast for breakfast, a whole banana or mandarin for snacks, grapes, tomato, avocado, apple pieces, sandwiches, pasta… whatever everybody else is eating he not only tries, but demolishes…
…all that & only two teeth!
