Kif - I wasnt going to make the pizza just for DD, I was making for me and DH and wanted to know if she can have some too as I want her to have what we are having when possible.
And also, I am not doing BLW or Annabel Karmel, I just go with the flow and give a bit of everything, some puree, some finger foods, some mashed etc. Depends on where we are, what we are eating etc. Works best for us as I dont really see the need for "rules" as long as the food is healthy.
Chloemegjess, that's very ignorant weaning and if you're not careful, you will end up with a child who will taste anything and has a healthy and joyful approach to food!
Did you not know about the four day rule, the sieve rule, the separate food rule, the paediatrician rule, the weaning spoon rule and the double shunt Brentingby-Smythe rule? You can't just give them food willy-nilly, they'll grow up thinking all they have to do is put it in their mouths and enjoy it!
every thing is fine (blueberries too soft for choking) - but be warned about blueberry poo. A few hours after a blueberry feast, the poo is turquoise! No problem its just the skin that is not digested (like kernals of sweetcorn + raisins) but it is really frightening when you first see it.
I thought it was, I just didnt want to say thank you if it was actually the other way round! lol
I do admitt, I did read annabel karmel book, that was given to me, but just took the advise about what they can and cant have etc and used it in my own way. I read it before weaning and havent looked back to refer or anything, as I see it as just a rough idea as to how the best way to cook stuff is etc
I don't understand why it depends on whether blw or Annabelle Karmel? why would it be different? Surely some foods are ok and some are not, no matter.
(btw, I think AK's great, as she's suggested all sorts of foods I wouldn't have thought of using for baby and as a result I'm confident in feeding her similar stuff to our own meals. The main thing is salt and sugar though. If I was having baked beans I wouldn't offer to baby because of the salt and sugar in them. I also make sure baby gets plenty of finger foods too, so I'm not following one 'regime' either.)
Anyway, I would suggest no to baked beans because of salt and sugar, and similarly make sure tomato purée is salt free, esp if putting it on bread with cheese, as that's plenty of salt already.
I laughed at someone on here who said that they cut blueberries for their child and then the next day one got stuck in my DS and I had to hold him over the sink and bang him on the back to get it out. So now I squish bigger ones (I figure the little ones are too little to get stuck).
Mine had pizza with pesto and tomatoes from about seven months - he loved it (although it is extraordinarily messy!)
