    Hi ladies :flower:

    So, I'm gonna start Erin BLW tomorrow after 2 weeks of her taking food out of my hand/off my plate etc (was not good food so she didn't eat any of it ... ohhh..... I <3 chocolate!!) so thinking I'm gonna try her out with some bits! I bought some rice cakes today (the little organix ones, apple flavoured - yum!) and avocado to use as a spread. Also have some fruit and veg to give her. Does this sound ok for starters? I'm only goona do 1 meal a day around lunch time - see how it goes.

    God - I'm really nevous!!!! EEEEEkkkk!

    Good luck! We started TW a couple of weeks ago, but it's a right faff so I want to mix it with BLW. Our LOs are similar ages x x

    Thanks ladies :flower:

    Well, today she had broccolli, carrot, yellow pepper, asparagus (I know, posh :haha: ) and some rice cakes. She nearly chocked on the rice cake although seemed to like it and couldn't get enough broccolli :wacko: She got on ok with the carrot and pepper but not overly fussed. I'm not sure how much she actually ate, most of it ended up on her, well, everywhere!, but thats the point isn't it!! She only lasted about 10mins as she is not keen on her hightchair, but I think we had progress!! We had some very strange, and funny :haha: faces!! Love her!!!

    Note to self - strip her down and don't bother with a bib!!!!

    Thanks ladies :flower:

    I have a question for experienced BLWers! Erin is really good at the hand/mouth coordination, but won't opick things up from the table (well, her highchair tray!). If I hold it she will take it from my hand and straight to her mouth. I don't want to push her if she is not ready, so should I be offering it to her this way or just wait until she picks it up for herself?
