    After 1 week.

    Seriously, cooking separate food is ridiculously frustrating and time consuming. I gave up on it after a week.

    I never did purées either but went straight to the food that we eat. For the first month or so we did the boring meat and veg but now I pretty much just cook anything.

    I always have meatballs, zucchini slice or fritters in the freezer so he can eat them if I want something not suitable (eg takeaway or curries).

    I knew that I wouldn't have the patience to purée stuff and I also went back to work shortly after I started him on solids so didn't want to waste the time either.

    Yup we did BLW too. Kids get what we eat. They love all kinds of interesting food. We used to go to a Turkish restaurant a lot when DS1 was only little and just started eating. Everyone was amazed that he would try everything we ate.

    My first was probably about 10 or 11 months, my second and third were BLW, so same as us from the start.

    We still do a bit of both - dd is 11mths

    I make a few things like frittata, zucchini slice, savory muffins, meatballs and shredded chicken etc that I can just freeze and easily grab out for her meals when I haven't made our dinner yet or we are having something a bit too spicy, but i used to cook extra veg and meat at dinner and make her mashed food the same way in bulk to freeze.

    When I have a little more prep time she mostly eats what we do but semi-deconstructed.
    She will have plain ravioli and slices of mushrooms and balls of cooked mince on the night we have spaghetti etc.
    I just put hers aside as I'm cooking- she has had and eats happily.. Garlic, pepper, cumin and chilli plus more.

    For lunch I usually make her an avocado sandwich and fruit.

    For breaky she has a boiled egg and toast same as me. Or pieces of corn flakes- no milk. When I have cereal in bowl made with milk etc.

    I also make a few batches of kid snacks like little power balls made with blended oats, dates and fruit rolled in coconut or a muesli slice etc. they keep for the week in the fridge and save me having that moment of madness when she is hungry and I can't think of what to give her. Quick, easy and she loves them.
