One trend among kids who were weaned the baby led way is that they are far less picky than those weaned the traditional way. Yes, yes, of course there are always exceptions. But BLWers aren’t afraid of funky textures or colors or new flavors because they’ve been eating a large variety since day one of weaning.
Did you see my post last week about doing baby led weaning at restaurants?
When I first sat down to write this post, I thought “Well, it’s basically the same thing as the restaurant post, right?” When you’re on vacation, you are eating out more often (okay, that’s how we vacation, anyway), so how will this post be any different? What can I add? How can I expound on the last post? I might have figured it out. 🙂
(Earlier today, I answered the question “What can my 6-month-old eat?“) I get this question a lot, too. It also looks like, “My baby has no teeth! What can he eat?”
“What can my baby eat? He’s got no teeth!”
I get this question a lot. It also looks like, “Is this suitable for a 6 month old?”
They are totally valid questions. I asked them, too, back when my big baby was a littler baby. It just doesn’t make sense to give your 6-month-old (6mo) a steak with mashed potatoes and green beans, does it? But alas… it IS okay. For most, though, that isn’t a comfortable idea.
