I have a 7.5mth old DD. I've gone down the Baby Led Weaning ( BLW ) route from 6mths as she's fiercely independent, cried when I tried to spoon feed her and loves food and feeding herself. I agree with the philosophy and it's right for us.
We are only upto one meal a day ( dinner ) and maybe some fruit mid morning. Still exclusively breasted.
My concern is that she's gone from 4 poo's a day to one very uncomfortable one. It's got seeds from bread and bits of food in it so when she's going she gives a little cry. She's also waking every hour due to a sore tummy I think.
My question is.. Is this normal and how long till it passes? Is there anything I can do to help?
I don't want to give purées but she seems to have trouble passing proper food
We offer water with every meal and it's only good stuff like green veggies, carrot, bit of white fish etc..
I've also copped a few looks and comments for doing BLW and am the only one in my circle of friends/mothers group.
What do you generally say to not be rude but stay firm in your decision. So many opinionated people out there 😞
( we are 100% on BLW so no negative comments pls )
Many thanks in advance.
