  1. We are doing baby-lead weaning too (www.babyledweaningblog.com) and I am super jealous of your supportive doctor. Our pedi didn’t seem to like the idea of him having meat and she told us outright to avoid spices. I like her otherwise and I hate having to omit things when she asks questions. At least she is with us on whole foods instead of cereals and purees.

    Baby-led is just so much more FUN than purees. We started out by spooning mush to my son and he always just looked so BORED.

  2. I really wish I had heard of baby-led weaning 4 years ago! I did most of it by the book, except I missed the part on no honey and no spices. I’ve since looked up the reason for honey and thank goodness he was fine! As for no spices, that is just weird. Since when do kids need bland food? I cook lots of international dishes and to this day at age 4 my son will eat just about anything…except the ubiquitous mac and cheese (that is unless it is made with a really strong aged cheese with lots of flavor).


  3. Thanks for the opportunity to guest post Amy!

  4. I did almost exactly the same thing! Once I introduced meat, we were golden … the baby devoured it like there was no tomorrow, and was clearly digesting it much better than he did with vegetables.

    Now, at just over one, he pretty much eats everything I do. Still trying to keep candy away from him, but he eats healthy food like it’s going out of style.

  5. Did this with both my babes but it started becuase the first wanted nothing to do with pureed foods. I now have a 6 year old and almost 4 year old that are extremely healthy and happy and eat a larger variety of foods then any of their friends. Now the 6 year old doesn’t eat much of any food, but he does eat a large variety of things! I recommend this to all my friends.

  8. Interesting blog! Is your theme custom made or
    did you download it from somewhere? A design like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my blog stand out.
    Please let me know where you got your theme.
    Kudos
