Luna: ‘yep Mommy this looks ok to me...nothing but sweet potatoes and sweet potatoes’
So the weaning journey has begun!!! Who knew a few mouthfuls of puréed vegetables could make so much mess! But Luna seems to love it, despite her facial expressions 😄
I have been so excited for this day to come and see what she does when she tastes her first mouthful of food. To begin with she pulled a ‘sucked on a lemon’ face then spat it out, sucked it back in and then suddenly decided she liked it and nearly ate the spoon along with her food.
She has so far tried sweet potato, parsnips, peas, broccoli and carrots! Carrots seem to be the favourite so far. We are doing a mix of purée and finger foods, sticking to just vegetables for the moment.
It’s hard to know where to start, there’s so many opinions about baby led weaning, what to give and what not to give etc etc. I have just taken what I knew already through my years of working in childcare, along with a bit of research, advice given and my own parents instinct and well it seems to be going pretty well.
I had to hold back gagging when giving her the mushy peas, I personally hate peas. But to Luna’s knowledge I look like I bloody love peas. A bit of over exaggerating ‘mmmm’s’ and ‘yummmmy’, kept Luna smiling and wanting more 😅
It was also very exciting to put Luna in her high chair, we went out for a family meal and it was nice to have Luna at the table with us and she absolutely loved it. She was fascinated with watching everything going on around her and was very excited about having her own little meal of steamed carrots, although she kept eyeing up my pie and my Husbands burger 😄
Thank you to @ellaskitchenuk for the pack sent through, we have our weaning chart up in the kitchen, with a few stickers on there already! It will make a great keepsake. And the information book and recipes is like my weaning bible.
