the beginning of a beautiful friendship

Since Ainsleigh will not be denied I've reluctantly started giving her food. I cannot explain how vocal this child is. You just have to experience it.

Since Bennett didn't really get going with food until 8 months this is new territory for me. I'm doing baby led weaning, but I'm not quite sure what I'm doing. And it's not strict baby led weaning because I am making some of her food into a fairly chunky puree.

Maybe we should coin a new phrase: instinctual feeding. I bet if I google that phrase it already exists (so I'm just not going to do that).

This evening I caught myself thinking I haven't fed her in a while! I'm supposed to feed her breastmilk before solids. Oh no! I'm not introducing one food at a time either.

Reminder: there aren't baby police, or mom police, who will enforce these rules that are really just guidelines.

This evening I put a bits of pureed sweet potato on Ainsleigh's tray and let her explore. She had a great time.

Ainsleigh has tried avocado, sweet potato and homemade chicken broth. She liked all of them but chicken broth is definitely her favorite.

How is she already this big?

B & Avocado

B seemed to do fine with his first dose of avocado.  He was a bit uncertain, but didn't mind eating.  We decided to do purees for now, though baby led weaning may be in our future.

Then he stopped sleeping.  And I need my sleep.  I am protective of my four hour stretches.  After four consecutive bad nights I didn't give him avocado for a day, just milk.  Guess what?  He slept fine.

We're going to file this under not ready for solids.
