Just putting the feelers out here because my LO just doesn't seem ready. She's 6months one week and hasn't quite yet doubled her birth weight. My argument is, how can they all be the same?????

Your thoughts please!!

couldnt you just offer a few finger foods off of your plate to play with and see if she tries to eat them? That way you are not making anything special for her but she gets to practice/learn about solid foods.

I would go the BLW route as Seona suggests and let her get there in her own time. Don't worry I'm sure she will be fine even if she does not take to it straight away. Food is for fun until they're one. (Doubling birth weight is not regarded as a weaning sign now BTW)
