I'm looking to start baby led weaning in the next month with my son.

What was the first thing your baby ate? I'm not sure what to start with. He will be 5.5-6m.

The piece of carrot from a beef stew he grabbed from dad's plate. He was about 20 weeks...

Stick of cucumber.

One was steamed broccoli, another a bit of banana, and I think one grabbed a slice of pizza...

A chip he grabbed from my plate blush

Baby rice and pureed pear
If you're talking finger food, banana I think

A slice of melon I think. She didn't eat it though. Just sucked on it

Cucumber that she stole from my hand. Then cauliflower purée.

Dd2 snatched a hot dog bun out of my hand while I was discussing with a friend when I was going to start weaning - that'll be now then grin

Dc1 - A whole peeled banana. He thought he had died and gone to heaven judging by the look on his face. The photos make me melt every time I look at them.

Dc2 - can't remember blush

Little sucks and chomps of mushed strawberries.

(He screamed all night for what seemed like hours, this wasn't uncommon for him, he's always been a bad sleeper but by goodness I didn't give him strawberries again for months!)

A sweet potato wedge that she swiped from her dad's plate when she was 5.5mo! blush She still loves them now!

Carrot puree. She looked at me like like I was trying to kill her.

notagiraffe Sun 13-Mar-16 20:49:11

A piece of feta from the lamb and feta pita I was holding. I was carrying him round a food market in a sling and he just kept helping himself. Very salty but he loved it. It was so cute.

Snap Pyjama - cheeky little things aren't they!

Started BLW two weeks ago, first meal she had bits of roast dinner - potato, carrot, parsnip, broccoli and chicken. She sucked a bit of it, squished most of it in her little fists, and chucked what was left on the floor. Thoroughly enjoyed it! We chose it as we love it and meant we could try a few things at once to see how she reacted and experiment with size of pieces, softness etc.

She's getting the hang of swallowing it now, two weeks in. I know it doesn't suit everyone but can't imagine spoon feeding her. It's so much messy fun!

A ripe pear - I nibbled the skin off for him a bit at a time. Then corn on the cob

Cheese and pickle sandwichblush
He grabbed it from my plate when I went to answer the door to the postman. Almost 1/4 gone when I came back 2 minutes later. He was only 5 months!

Her dad's crumpet. Stolen off his plate...
