    Default BLW Advice

    Hi all,

    We have just started BLW this week. DS is 5-1/2 months.

    How do I know when he has had enough? At the moment, I'm just letting him go until he starts to whinge in the high chair but I'm not sure if we should stop earlier. Some nights he's ok for 30 minutes, other times it's only 10 minutes.

    On a side note, I am so glad that I've gone down this path (at least in my extremely limited experience). I hate the thought of having to prepare separate meals and purée everything. It's great fun to see everything mashed everywhere and DS' reaction to it all.

    Thanks

    I am by no means an expert on this topic but I think as long as he is happy being in the high chair is fine.

    Even when they aren't eating the food but playing with it they are still learning.

    Ds is alnost 1 now and I usually gauge when he has had enough to eat by when he starts throwing it on the floor instead of eating it.

    I just let DS1 sit there and eat/play until he started whinging or threw the food on the floor. BLW is great isn't it?

    The great thing about BLW is they eat as much/ little as they want - he's still learning so just offer at every meal and if he eats he eats if not don't stress - just like us sometimes they are hungrier and sometimes not !

    Well IMO the way babies communicate before they can talk is by whinging, crying etc. So once they start to whinge and struggle in the chair, then they're done and want out!
