    Default BLW. Any bad experiences??

    I am very interested in BLW and from what I can gather I have only seen the positives. I was wondering if anyone has had any trouble with BLW and did not work for them and bubs?
    Thanks!

    No bad experience here either. If you do a bit of reading online and understand the mouth and tongues natural reflexes etc then even the 'bad' experiences like gagging and coughing are normal and ok

    None here either, it's actually more 'normal' than using mushy baby food in jars. It's easy peasy and feels natural

    the only bad or negative thing is that since we've always let DD feed herself... you cannot feed her. also she will not eat if she is full. You know how some kids you can convince them to have another spoon?? well no... you can't.

    So if we are out at dinner she has her own plate and she feeds herself. we take our own cutlery for her so that she can feed herself. and when she says she is done. we remove the food.

    Get a copy of the book to read if you can, the only negative I have ever heard or experienced is the mess! ( but that's only when they are younger, 18 month old DS is really good now, even with spoon and fork!)

    We did it with DD, its the best thing i ever did

    We have always had trouble with sleeping, and she was waking hungry a lot, so at about 9 and 10 months we would feed her half a jar of apple and oats before bed so we knew she had a full tummy. She just didnt seem to be able to get enough in for a little while, we didnt have to do it for long.

    She is now 14 months and will try anything, she is a great eater, and people often comment on how well she eats. Its not even that messy anymore (well not until she is finished and throws the bowl across the room)

    but seriously it is amazing, and fun! Go BLW!

    ETA: Much less choking incidences than with her brother, who we gave pureed foods

    No, we started about a month ago and are loving it. DD tries everything we put in front of her, she has never not tried anything. She loves being part of mealtimes.
