Food has been so much fun with Ryley. We are doing Baby Led Weaning – the basic concept is that Ryley gets to eat what we eat. This isn’t always possible but I feed her whole foods instead of purees. If you are interested in this idea make sure to read the book, lots of good information there and it will help you be less nervous about the idea.
So far Ryley has had:
- Red Pepper
- Sweet Potato
I think that’s everything. Tomorrow I think we are going to try pears. Here are a few pictures of her eating
|Broccoli at Christmas|
|Hard to see but she is enjoying herself a couple of carrots|
She doesn’t actually eat much, most of it ends up in lap or on the floor but she really loves the experience. It’s actually pretty adorable, if she is sitting in that chair eating we also have to be eating or she gets upset. Apparently she doesn’t like to eat alone.
I’m still a little bit nervous about the whole thing with baby led weaning but I love the idea that she gets to figure out food on her own.
