My ds is only 6 weeks and I have no intention of starting the weaning process until he is 6 months + (I have a 6 year old girl and I cant remember what I did with her and I believe the whole weaning thing has changed since she was tiny) so just for curiosity when did you start. I have a lot of fresh fruit and veg that I dont want to go to waste (I hate waste especially when there are starving children!) could I start now and freeze it?? Do I puree it, which I believe isn't the done thing anymore or do I keep it more whole? X
Another baby led weaning fan here, but I think we just called it lazy parenting. Both DC ate anything we had from around 6 months...no faff! However, you need to do what you feel is right for you and your baby. BLW has become 'fashionable' but I have a friend whose baby just didn't take to it, so long as they are getting decent food it doesnt matter how it's prepped. Blw is a just bit more messy - we found our dog helped with that!
wet my baby even now at 15 months is still reluctant to pick up most foods. He eats a wide range of foods off of spoon, and despite being offered finger food at every meal time, refuses to pick most things up.
I wouldnt be happy at all to give my baby food frozen five months months ago for her first intro to food. It would be spring then (our babies are the same age it seems) and I'd want to introduce him to food with some fresh spring veggies.
Regarding the veg you have now - make soups and freeze for your family to enjoy over the winter that lies ahead of us?
