I started my boy on purées when he was just shy of 4 months and he was loving them!
But when he hit about 5months he seemed to lose interest and just kept trying to get stuff off my plate! That led me to pureeing casseroles etc but he wasn't interested either.
So I read a book from the library about BLW by Gill Rapley. Anyways it was really good so I decided to try the BLW avenue for a little while.
Now my problem is - I know that he won't be eating as much solids now as its a lot trickier to get into his mouth and process etc so booby will be his main source of food that's cool with me! But how little is too little? I feel a little bit like I'm setting him back by doing this? It's just hard to imagine that this will actually lead to him properly eating?
Just to paint the picture - he's having toast crusts and banana fingers with me in the morning. He eats in his high chair at the table with us each night and I just give him what I can from our meals - I.e homemade guacamole to mush and eat with his hands , strips of steamed chicken, little interesting piles of rice, capsicum etc. he is now 5.5 months old.
I know heaps of mums on here do BLW so I'm really just looking for words of wisdom/reassurance and also any hints that you guys found that made things easier for bubs?
