do you all think it is ok that i give dex rice cakes? he doesnt seem that interested in food yet but he seems to love rice cakes. I think more for the fact that it helps his gums as he is teething loads at the moment (he has 2 teeth). He is defo eating them too as his poo smells like them, haha. He was interested in porridge but that seems to have waned. He has pretty much gone off milk feeds too so i think this must be the teething. He was eating the porridge but then suddenly it is back to square one again, I'm not really that fussed though.

I will come up with something.
Have you thought of rice cakes with something on them like marmite or something sweeter?

I give Olivia reduced salt rice cakes and she loves them too! She like them best with nothing on .

Olivia is teething as well and hardly eating anything but I keep trying. When she does eat, she takes a couple of mouthfuls then has had enough. x

I think that sounds ok, can't believe Dex has 2 teeth!

Can I ask which rice cakes you all buy? Do u get the baby ones or if not, which brand have low salt?

Yep my mum suggested rice cakes yesterday so I am going to buy some today. Not sure about marmite just yet though .

I know I have seen some natural organic ones somewhere....I think they were in the 'free from' section in supermarket.

We are going to my mums today and she has made Freya some gluten/wheat and sugar free rusks. Not sure what she has made them with though!

Will see if she can restrain herself from spoon feeding Freya. Her new thing is she wants to give her diluted orange juice (not squash, juice). I just keep saying no thanks, just water!

Hi

I'm brand new to this forum so just wanted to say Hi. Lily is now 6.5 months old and we've been baby led weaning for the past few weeks. She's definitely gone from playing with her food to eating more and more which is fab but I was just curious is anyone else on here formula feeding and doing BLW and if so how much does your little one take?

Thanks

I am formula feeding and BLW but not sure if I am a good example yet as we haven't really got going with it, Freya hasn't swallowed anything yet and I am not pushing it. She has a play with food once a day to get her used to the idea that's all at the moment. I will let you know how she goes on with her milk though! She is taking between 30-40oz a day right now.

Hi fordkim, welcome to BnB

Violet's 6.5month and been BLW for about a month or so now. Shes only just started swallowing on purpose the last two days and she's having 4x 8oz bottles but she doesn't always take the lot. It's always between 6-8oz that she takes though.

Edit: Just wanted to add that she has lunch and dinner, we're not doing breakfast yet.. (I did start but by time she got up, got her dressed, had a milk feed and then finished breakfast, it was getting onto 11am before I even got the chance to get dressed lol!)
