We did BLW with DD1 cos I was reluctant to start solids till 6-7mths. My dd1 at 2yo eats really well as in variety but she isn't a garbage disposal.
But I agree with a PP about BLW babies being hungry. I idiotically listened to a MCHN who said that I needed to boob less for her to eat more. So I did and my sleeping thru baby stopped cos I was with holding boob and she was hungry! At dd1s 12mth check up the GP told me that I should have kept boobing and solids are just a supplement till 1yo.
This time round I'm going to keep boobing at my usual 1-2hrly and supplement with solids.
I agree with KW123 - blw makes sense. I understand most of the PP wanting to feed their kids to make sure they eat something but I've never fed dd1 so I honestly don't know. Now she eats with cutlery
With dd2 I do plan on doing blw but will introduce the concept of spoon feeding to her so I can feed her in the future if required.
