My Little R is now 9 months old and we gave him his first solid food when he was 5 months. For the first 4 weeks the majority of the food we gave him was mashed, but when he hit 6 months we switched to baby led and haven’t looked back!
R likes to feed himself, he resents being spoon fed but tolerates it for things like Weetabix or custard. Baby led weaning has been a learning curve for the husband and I and a source of anxiety for the husband on occasions but our son is so happy and loves his meals times. In a previous post on baby led weaning back in February I detailed our early journey.
Now I’m going to share with you some of the meals I’ve served up for R and I as him and I eat the same meals, with just the occasional tweak for how R has it.
