    Default BLW - has anyone done it and still ended up with a fussy eater?

    I have only ever heard positive stories about BLW but I have to think that surely it doesn't end up in an un-fussy eater for everyone (not including those with sensory or other similar issues). Just wanting to hear if there is anyone who has fully done BLW (no spoon fed purees at all) who has a fussy eater? So far my daughter has been doing BLW for about 3 weeks and there is nothing that she has refused. She definitely prefers some things over others but will still pick up everything I offer her and have a good go at it. I'm just wondering if I should stop counting my chickens before they hatch lol.

    We did BLW with DS (and we did a little big of spoon feeding when he was younger, but he mostly spoon fed himself). And my ds is very fussy. Although I think it's just an age thing (he's nearly 3) and I think he just likes having an opinion about things atm lol

    Yep! We did BLW starting at 6 months with DD and she is very fussy. I have posted numerous threads about her fussiness lol. She refuses to eat anything saucy/wet - so no spaghetti bolagneise, casseroles, soups etc. I don't think BLW made her that way, she just hates the feel of stuff like that.

    My Ds isn't ultra-fussy but he knows what he likes and what he doesn't! We did BLW and tbh he barely touched anything til he was about 15months old. Just not that into food it would appear! My Dd (also BLW) on the other hand will eat anything you give her

    I did blw with dd, went well and she was a really good eater until around 2ish. She is getting increasingly fussy and won't eat things she used to especially veggies.
    I have a friend who did purees and her dd is an amazing eater !

    I did BLW with DD and she was an awesome eater, wide variety of foods etc. And then she turned 3 (ish, maybe a bit before), and now she is much more particular. I think it is her trying out what she has control over, and what she can get away with, rather than her genuinely not liking lots of foods.

    We are just going with the flow, and seeing what happens in a year or so.

    My DS is 19months now and still keen on most foods, so will be interesting to see if he does the same thing.

    I love that my kids know when they have had enough, and don't feel the need to stuff themselves because the food is there.
