apologies for rubbish typing am feeding at same time...
BLW with 6 month old just started and going well with roast veg, steamed veg and rice cakes. But am really confused about what its ok to give him:
dairy? fish? meat? bread i.e gluten?
i found this dutch website with a list of foods it's ok to feed it excludes quite few things and i had thought i could give him almost anything barring salt and sugar. was i wrong?
also, should i be sterilising his water cup? he doesn't use a bottle.
and finally, he is exclusively BW, if you can bear to be descriptive, what did your DS's poo look like at the start of BLW? mine has quite pasty/runny yellow ones with increasingly more bits and browny colour but still not solid at all. this sound ok?
thanks yes I have seen that website and its been really useful. That's where I got the link to the Dutch website that advises an order for foods introduced. But it looks to me like opinion is divided about how to introduce foods? Am I right? So I need to decide what suits us? I'm a bit sleep deprived at the moment so not finding it easy to read everything and get it straight in my head!!
Thingy Rapley's book on BLW is quite useful - you'll find it on Amazon. It doesn't give recipes but has lots of useful info and does have a list of good BLW foods. I started late November, and dd is still only breast fed too (i.e only has my breast milk & some water now - no formula). Her poo ranges from yellow with lunps to really green and thick some days. It seems to be like that after she's eaten banana! Good luck - I am very pleased we decided to do BLW. Dd's loving it!
Thanks Monkeysmama. we've got the book and are now well into BLW and having lots of fun along the way! it really is great watching them trying new foods and getting their heads around more and more tastes and sensations
