    Default BLW anxiety and q's

    Some may recall an earlier thread when DD was 5 months and she stole my banana and starting eating it lol Well I did mostly wait it out and she's 6 months old now and I have started giving her bits and peices when she wants it. Mostly breakfast or lunch.

    My problem is the anxiety I get when she eats! I read all these mum's saying their baby doesn't eat much of it mostly plays etc but my DD just scoffs everything! I don't think it's because she's hungry as she is fed on deman very frequently and she never cries for food etc she's a very content baby

    For example, I made chicken stock the other day and gave her the boiled carrot from the stock. She grabs it with both hands and chomps giant chunks off, swooshes them around and swallows. Her nappy was about half of a carrot! And it was a BIG carrot. I know she knows what she's doing I guess I just want to know if other mums had extremely enthusiastic eaters?

    DS1 ate with gusto! I remember plonking a piece of roast pumpkin on his highchair tray when he was 5.5 months thinking he'd play with it - he ate the whole thing in about three seconds!
