    Dont really get all that baby led weaning stuff I think it is another fad,I mean giving a baby porridge with no spoon would love to see that,lol

    Well done on Rhys having his toast bless him. I used to do Chloe cheese on toast and cut into fingers or eggy bread like that (french toast) they love it.

    I am to start weaning at 4 months (thats the old way of doing it) I cant beleive they have increased it to 6 months now.

    I am sure baby led weaning works for lots but the mess.......lol

    Yay Rhys. I love BLW, it was so much easier. I usually gave Seren chunks of fruit like banana and pear, also rice cakes were fab too. Steamed carrot and broccoli spears were a fave also.

    I tried Seren at 5 and a half months with BLW and she was great with it, the recommendation is 6 months but as baby is in charge of their eating they won't eat anyhting until they are able to move the food to the back of their mouth and swallow.

    teaches baby to chew food without choking!

    I'm another big fan of BLW and will be doing it with Alex when he starts showing an interest in being able to feed himself. In my opinion BLW is a much better way to do it, but then I'm biased ;)
