So with everyday Miss C getting bigger, stronger more cheeky *getting down on knees and thanks god*. She’s discovered her brothers hair, hasn’t quite discover she can pull it but its just a matter of time. She’s still waking at night hungry and if she takes a full feed she’s off her morning milk…blah blah blah. Won’t bore you with the details but I’ve started to give her baby rice, I don’t want to wean her fully yet I think it’s too soon, although she is showing signs of being ready. So at the moment she’s having a few wee spoons of it in the afternoon!!
The last few nights she’s still woke for a bottle but I’ve given her a small amount, to be honest I not even sure the rice is working. She’s so different to LPV in every way *for one her brother slept*. So I’m wondering this time about baby led weaning, It was something I looked into last time with LPV and an old neighbour of mine in Dubai sore by it. However I’m a bag of nerves at the best of time let alone giving Miss C a farking pork chop to chew on!! When I gave LPV grapes, I cut them, peeled them and practically sat on his lap to feed them to him. I have concerns as well about the nutrients they’re getting, that’s what I liked about the puree process was that I controlled the amount of veggies that he ate, he was healthy and the floor didn’t get fed.
Its funny with the first child you’re in such a hurry to reach each stage, the thought of any type of weaning fill me with dread, all our clothes will be ruined, the hand blender will die a slow painful death *again* and they’ll be no room in the freezer. So maybe I should cut out the puree drama and just embrace the BLW and the whole new drama of me having a nervous break down every time she eats!
What are you feelings on BLW?
