This is why I havent told my inlaws that we are doing BLW as they will think I am crazy or stupid!! Rebecca has looked like she was choking a bit on a carrot and on a rice cake earlier today but I never take my eyes off her when she is eating so if she really was choking I would have been able to react quickly, scary stuff this!!

We do this with Maley.....we give her purees aswell as she likes them but at the end I dip the spoon in the puree and give her the spoon and she has loads of fun licking it all off....i have a video somewhere....heres a pic

fingers foods we have tried so far are.....

sticks of cucumber,
rusks,
melon slices,
the crust end of toast,

and she likes it all!!! she has learnt to chew already which is great! she actually chewed a lump of melon which was great as i was sitting there holding my breath in case she chokes

Clever Maley!! Hebe likes rusks too.

Sam - I gave her half the banana. When it got slimey and she kept dropping it I just passed it back to her. Then I gave her the second half in the skin. She sucked the skin a few times but it kept it from getting as slimey.

I am literally giving her anything off our plates so long as it's not processed or has salt or sauces on it.

She's gagged a couple of times but she just gets it back up on her own - so long as you keep an eye on them you'll be fine.

Tonight we've had a takeaway curry and she had chapati!!

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
A bit of advice for you hun, from experience of my nephew. If you give tea, make sure it's decaf. I know you probably make it very weak, but my parents did this with my nephew and before they knew it, he was addicted to the caffiene! So be careful. We only have decaf anyway, so we should be ok.

Where have you all gone?!!
Oliver is doing well with his food. It is now reaching his mouth and going in on purpose! He loves his veggies, but rusks were a complete nightmare. It just swent everywhere and kept slipping out of his hands!
Might try him with some sloppier foods soon - see what he makes of them. My God - he'll end up looking like Torias Caitlyn!!!

Glad it's going well Kat. I'd go for trying him with sloppier foods! It's a lot of fun and in my experience they get really excited about it all

Our most interesting news to report is that a while ago Alasdair had a reaction to strawberries (first time he'd had them) and I was advised not to give them to him for a couple of months. I had a go at giving him them again on Saturday and he wouldn't put them in his mouth. He talked to them, he picked them up but they were not food to him. I'm not going to force him to try them again, he probably knows best and he eats plenty of other fruit and veg!
