The banana was a bust

But that's ok!

Michelle sent me some info on Baby Led Weaning/Solids. I'd kinda heard about it before and I took another look at it. There are definitely certain aspects of it that I like, but it's a little scarier than spoon feeding and enough out of the norm that I'm just not sure what I think.

But it made me rethink the first meal a little. I decided to just give him the banana and see what happens. He squished it up some, he never tried to put it in his mouth (which is weird, because he puts everything in his mouth). He just wasn't interested really. He wasn't hungry at the time either, which was on purpose. I just wanted it to be fun.

So we will hold off trying again for a week or two.

And I'm not sure if we want to take a BLW approach or not. My husband is pretty against it (from what I can tell, it seems like all dads are against it). My plan is to take it meal by meal.

So we weren't able to get the first feeding milestone passed Friday night, but we did manage to get another! He rolled back to front, FINALLY! He's been rolling over 97% of the way for more than a month, but wouldn't finish the job. He just wants to be on his side to look around (and tease mommy and daddy). He's like a fish, he would just flip back and forth from one side to another. He would come so close to all the way over so often and DH and me would hold our breath, wondering if he was finally going to do it. But then it happened. Me and DH were both there with him on the floor after giving up on the solids. He's been leaving us hanging for so long, we were so happy to see him do it.

Anyhow, I'm sorry I don't have anything more interesting to post than more gushing about my kid. Oh well. And while I'm at it, here's the cutie pie having some fun.

Why does blogger upload so grainy? Oh well.

Awww he is so cute! We have a jumper here for the little guy I watch and he LOVES it. Flat out refuses anything at home now that doesn't jump.
Yeah from what I've heard, most husbands are against trying the baby led weaning. From what I'm learning and experiencing with it now, I like it much better than the pureed, seperate feedings. It's easier to just make healthier things and all eat the same.
