He ate most of a big bred stick today!! He loved it - gummed it to death til it went soggy. He did look like he was choking on a bit and OH leapt up to slap his back, but I stopped him. I knew that he would just bring it forward again if we left him and he did! Out came a huge piece of it. My OH and In-laws were looking at me like I was crazy though, until I explained the theory behind it all. The're clever things these babies!

To be honest I just followed my own rules! He looked like he wanted food - grabbing it, biting fists, extra feeds etc and I know that these are all normal at this age. But the way I saw it was, if I gave him the food and he just played with it for 6 weeks, then fine. If he wanted to est it, then even better. I'm quite suprised about the events of the last couple of days to be honest! He had some carrot at the pub today too. We only offer him food once a day and most of the time, he just throws it. We'll just take things at his pace I think.

Sounds like it's going well Kat!!!

Hebe had a few new things while we were on holiday - apple, cucumber, pepper. She also ate nearly half a banana totally unaided!! It was sooooo funny. And the apple was funny too - she was rubbing it so hard on her gums that it was squeaking!!

I'm doing a bit of BLW with Niamh. Even though she's not 5 months yet she's trying everything i've given her and after feeding her ear a few times she's now hitting the target and getting stuff in her mouth!.

She liked banana, brocolli, soft carrot sticks, loved chewing on celery and sucked some asparagus to death. Not sure that she's swallowed much yet apart from some banana but she gets so excited when she sees me with her pink bowl and i put things on her tray.

I am also giving her banana porridge (didn't like baby rice). I load the spoon for her and she pops in her mouth.

She is doing so well all things considered.

I have a funny boy who won't touch bananas. Still! I'm always so (stupidly!) amazed when I read about other people's babies eating them esp baby led babies.

I'm glad that other people are doing this on here now Maybe if there had been more doing it when I first started weaning Ally I wouldn't have doubted myself so much!

If anyone remembers a post I posted a couple of weeks ago about Alasdair only wanting to eat carbohydrate, I have an update! He now won't touch carbohydrate until everything else on his tray is gone lol. Does anyone elses baby have an order they eat things in? Today I realised Alasdair had eaten one thing and not started on the next until the first was completely gone. So he had cheese, blueberries, grapes, cucumber and a ricecake lol. He even actually ate the green grapes before the red grapes!

P.s. Shall I ask the mods to move this to the weaning section, so can start a support thread for BLW?

well done Oliver
Oooh I have a good update too kat!!
Rebecca has decided that she will not only eat purees but toast, steamed carrot sticks, rice ckes and now thinks she should be getting some of whatever I am eating!! including cups of tea

cant wait until I can start giving her bits of what I am eating
Good idea about moving the thread, didnt realise so many people were doing BLW when I first posted
