I have weaned DD using a mix of purees etc and BLW. She started reluctantly but now, at 12 months, is a fab eater. So enthusastic, in fact, that in recent weeks she has started gobbling - and I have had a few heart-stopping moments when huge chunks of banana, meat and even an entire brussel sprout ahve disappeared in to her mouth and seemed about to be swallowed whole. I am petrified she is going to choke.
What do I do now? My instinct is to start giving her only very small bits of food and stop allowing her to have things to chew on.
I do blw of a kind and just make sure things are in reasonable chunks. I was previously cutting things into finger shapes but I realised she would eat better if things were in smaller pieces that she could pick up and put in. so maybe cutting things smaller is the best way.
hiya - think you're right, maybe sprouts etc keep cutting them in half for a bit, she's not completely grown up yet...though IME 12mths are liable to different habits every week?! so fingers crossed this will pass soon... Agree too re cake - you should see my DD wolf down cake!! Scary stuff - and I can't shrug off any blame, it's a mirror image.. Just keep an eye on her and be on hand - you've done a great job so far, and she loves her food - good work!
