or indeed food belonging to strangers. I looked round at a soft play place today to find her kneeling up at a man's table begging for his kitkat. Am convinced it harks back to the "try anything from mummy's plate" start of blw.
Also the adventurous eater bit of blw I was looking forward to can be a problem when she doesn't draw the line at hoiking raisins out of the washing machine, scoffing bird poo off the patio doors or her brother's poo!

you need to teach that child to boycott Nestle.

my dd2 is the same as blw started at my plate. my fear is one day she'll surprise herself with hot sauce which is a near essential fro me.

Yep, dd has perfected her baby bird at feeding time face, hence I only ever get two thirds of my tea. Not losing any bloody weight though

this is less endearing now she is nearly 2 hmm

I didn't do BLW (purees and finger food instead) and she's very much like this - I have no right to anything I am eating unless she doesn't want it grin

do blw babies ever stop eating?

ds thinks he is in for the long haul when he hits his feast and once he has started woe betide any one who stems the flow wink

LOL - DS (11 months this week shock) managed to escape his highchair in Frankie and Benny's today, rejecting entirely his range of vegetables and fish finger and scoff half DD's ice cream before I managed to retrieve him. He then gave my credit card a good gnawing while I was waiting for the pin machine to arrive hmm

Mind you, both of the little buggers steal everything I have to eat - this is why I am a size 10 and was a size 14 pre-kids - that and chasing the little sods round continually. hmm grin

works every time.

11 months WMMC shock Bloody hell... I thought dd was growing up fast.

madwoman - DS likes horseradish. Similarly sweet chilli dipping sauce, and he also had a good go at mustard encrusted net from a joint of beef I'd just roasted hmm

DD was the same, chicken jalfrezi at seven months I kid you not - bloody weirdo she is though (probably gets it from her mum). grin

DS is 3, and fully believes in this. Which works great as he will eat absolutely anything that is on anyone elses plate to start with.

He likes wasabi too

DD is just the same. I was snacking on olives. feta and garlic the other day and she was helping herself. Turns out she loves all three! Ds (3) was much the same and he's a wonderful eater now; he'll try just about anything.

DS3 is on purees and finger foods, but is very much like this. We even had to give him the pizza crust off ds1's plate at Pizza Hut the other day.

We used to put extra on our plate of the things we knew they'd go for. Still do when it comes to nice bread at the weekend. Other People's food is much nicer wink.
