When did you all start BLW?

Niamh is 5 months this month, and I am still holding off on weaning her. We stopped BFing this week, and she seems to be going 2-3 hours between bottles and is quite interested in what I'm eating. (She'll watch me with her mouth open but hasn't made any motions to grab what I'm eating or start gumming or sucking when I'm eating. )

It's BLW for us. Though I might be making my own purees too. A lot of people are surprised that she hasn't had anything yet.I'm a health food freak too, and want to be able to control everything Niamh eats until she's old enough to decide for herself. I don't like the thought of jarred mush. Don't know if you guys have seen this article?

We started at 5 1/2 months, but he is only just starting to eat now. It is such a long process! I agree with you about the jarred stuff! Some of the girls here give some mushed food of there own to their BLW LO, so maybe they can help. Oliver has had no mushed up stuff at all, unless you count porridge and weetabix!
You'll find plenty of help, advice and support here hun. And BTW, you need your wits about you to do this method! Good luck hun, we are seriously enjoying it!

Hi

Thought I would give an update on us!

So far Rebecca LOVES her toast and porridge in the mornings, she loves her porridge so much she hardly dribbles any onto her bib

We are still trying BLW with some purees and up until this afternoon we were not having much luck with my homemade food as it turns out I was pureeing ( is that a word?!?!) it too much she appears to like her food mashed, silly mummy, why didnt I know that!!

She has tried a lot of veg and fruit and even dribbled on a ickle cheese sandwich! Bought the baby stock cubes from boots today to use in our cooking so she can have some of what we are eating.

How would we go about getting this thread made a sticky??

Is anyone on here doing PURELY blw, or are you all giving a bit of mash/puree etc.
We are doing it in it's purest form, but now I've seen that you're all giving mash etc, I'm starting to doubt myself. We've tried porridge and weetabix, but with giving him the spoon loaded - it was a disaster! Should I just stick it out?
Tezzy, what did you do?
