On the baby led bit, I'll echo what the others said about mine eating anything you put in front of her, but she still went through a phase of being a fussy little shit who'd refuse the same kinds of food she had a just a day or two before.


Sometimes they decide they're going to refuse dinner before they realise what the meal is. Trying, but shit happens.

Every time I see this thread I misread it as Warning - "Baby Fed or Puree" and think about how bad an album that would be

Sometimes baby-led is scary though - I realised yesterday that my 9 month daughter ate 5-6 times what I ate in one meal relative to body weight. I've no idea how she did that.

How's that a function of one type of weaning over another though?

Sorry Dave for that off topic post. I'm remember next time to use the subsection "amount that babies eat" on MI. I know how confusing this can all get.

I think he was looking for an explicit "babies eat more on baby-led than puree", with some kind of anecdotal experience to hand.

Quite. Since one of the points of BLW is that they decide when they're finished themselves and that the body will process food in a more similar way to adult than with a puree.

Not sure how I elicited a response like that.

Touch wood, but its all gone pretty well. Started on sweet potato (demolished), moved onto broccoli and now bits of toast... sits at the table and eats what we're eating. Seems like no hassle at all.

Ripe Avocado, sweet potato and carrots were our best successes at the start. Squash worth a go too, steamed.

I had never heard of this method before reading this thread. Where I am, the new-ish thing is to start with purees at the end of the 4th (!!!!!) month and go from there. I think this is some newfangled Scandinavian thing where kids are lumped into creches after a mere 6 months so they need to be used to food at that point.

How are you supposed to get meat or another protein source into them with BLW?

They still (or are supposed to) get everything they need from formula/breastmilk up to 12 months, the food (of whatever form) is just a supplement to that.

I think I started mine on a small amount of chicken about 8 months - just pieces big enough for them to pick up. Obviously that's dependent on how many teeth they have.
