Sparks - might as well have been looking at the carnage after!

Nic - Cucumber was one of the first things Hebe attempted to eat It wont be long before she's off. I gave Hebe stuff to play with from about 4/5 months and she soon started sucking and nomming it.

Does anyone think that their diet has improved by following BLW? I think it will force me to really look at how I eat because Meadow will be eating what we eat most of the time.

I need to learn to cook! Simple things like pasta sauces have loads of salt in. I need to learn how to cook from scratch.

definitely Sam! I am getting so much better at cooking now. I make pasta sauces from scratch and marinate his meat (I've found he can eat more when it's marinated too), make bread sticks without salt in. All sorts! And I used to be a something quick or nothing at all kind of eater. I must say I don't always eat 3 meals a day now but I usually eat something with him twice a day.

I either use tommee tippee bibs that catch the food, although tbh, when he was smaller they really impeded his movement OR bibs that go over their arms so you could just take her bottom half off then.

I do find that once he's got the hang of a new food he magically seems to improve a lot with the messiness. It's really not that bad anymore. Apart from his 'signal' to tell me he's finished is to start dropping food on the floor lol.

gave amelie a piece of cucumber and shes just holding it and as soon as it gets to her lips shes screws her face up.. dont think she likes it!

So anyway, I'm new at this. I don;t really understand why BLW is but I'm just gonna be giving Amelie some fingerfoods at the moment alongside her purees. She hates lumps so I think I'll skip stage 2 with lumpy mash.
