    Also I would prefer my child to wake in the night for a breastfeed than to be overfull from eating too much in the sense of food before one is just for fun, I think they are missing out on vital breastfeeding opportunities (same goes for formula fed babies!).
    I don't buy that at all,
    My son was puree fed and a terrible sleeper, he loved food and would happily eat huge amounts but woke every 3 hours from.birth.

    Default Spinoff BLW vs Purée

    OP, my fussy eater is the puréed fed baby. My son eats and is willing to try anything! I didn't want a fussy eater second time around, that's why I did blw with my son. I am pregnant and due in 3 weeks. I will be doing blw with this baby as well.

    Default Spinoff BLW vs Purée

    My first DD started off on farex and puréed foods and as she got older we introduced finger foods. She is 10 now and except for a brief period when she was about two, she eats such a varied diet. Even as a four year old she would eat salad, veggies, you name it. I think I will do a combination this time around, some finger food meals, some puréed meals, especially to start with Thanks all for sharing your experiences and not getting all judgey when someone has a different method to you

    I am assuming from your quote is that your bubs didnt want meat and veg that day....and what baby doesnt love yoghurt and fruit!

    I found when I was doing the puree thing I felt a lot of frustration when they hadnt finished the cup/bowl/etc. Like he has to be hungry as he hasnt finished. They they would do that scrunching the mouth shut and shaking their head side to side while you try to do the 'choo choo train into the tunnel' to make them eat.

    BLW just teaches you that bubs controls how much they eat and arent goverened by how much is left in the bowl.

    Anyway....not trying to convert anyone to the 'dark side' but for me I found it so much easier BLWing, especially with two other kids in the mix, mealtimes are now enjoyable and not a fight.
    You can assume from my quote that had I followed BLW that my baby would have gone to bed hungry.

    I don't believe that an infant has the attention span or motor development to feed themselves an appropriate amount of dinner.

    Default Spinoff BLW vs Purée

    I've done blw with all my kids and their food intake needs matches their motor ability perfectly. Breast milk makes up the deficit as their need for solids and ability to feed themselves develops.

    i just feel that bubs don't actually get enough food in through exclusive BLW.

    I've also commonly seen, through friends and on here, that bubs that who BLW are often poor sleepers and big milk drinkers. Not always, just generally. IT'S BECAUSE THEY ARE HUNGRY!!!!!!

    It's not something that I "judge" on. I don't think it is the wrong thing to do and my way is the right way. I just think - your choice, you deal with the consequences.

    I would be more inclined to judge the parent that only feeds their kid packet food and never cooks fresh puree/finger food. Don't get me wrong though - my kids have had plenty of Rafferty's packets.....but i have felt bad/lazy for not making my own.
    I agree with this! When DD was nearing 7 months I was loving the idea of BLW and we did which was so ingredibly messy! But she didn't seem to be getting anything in or not enough so I started with some pure'... I try to mix it up with some finger foods like carot sticks and rock melon (low mess stuff!) anyway she seems to be doing great, I never gave her the cereal stuff, just started with some fruit.
    Today she had her first taste of pasta!

    The article didn't say farex is sugar. It said it is a highly processed white carb, which is metabolically not much different from poor sugar. Ie highly refined, high gi, etc.
