Please excuse the bad photo angle, I can’t take a good selfie with my daughter sitting on my lap, trying to feed baby, feed myself and entertain my eldest’s million dollar questions.
Well, this is me at mealtime, most of the time. I need 4 pairs of hands. My daughter was grumpy and who knows why. My eldest is super picky, and wants me to feed him too. Lack of attention and love maybe? Well, baby is just hungry and waiting for his turn. This baby is a gem, he’ll just wait for me for anything. When it comes to food, he’ll just wait for my spoon and open his mouth big big. He doesn’t know what to do with food in his hand. He looked confused why does the food not in his mouth already.
Then, my daughter will be jealous and wants a few spoonfuls too. My eldest will look at me like why I left him out? So I offered him baby food too. He shakes his head. It’s hard to put any proper food into my eldest’s mouth. Who says baby led weaning kid is less picky?
Spoon feed or self feed or baby led weaning? Who cares? The most important thing is feed the kids! (Bonus points for eating healthy food)
