So my son is almost 7 mo old and we've been doing BLW for almost a month. He is doing well, some days he is interested, other days not so much. Pretty normal from what I understand. I haven't actually read the book yet, so I wanted to make sure I am doing it right.
Basically he gets one "meal" offered a day. All self fed finger foods or pre-loaded spoons. I am not really consistent on what he gets though. Some days its bananas, sweet potatoes, cereal (pre-loaded spoon), or other typical baby type foods (not purees). Other days if we are busy it's just baby mum mums or other snacky type food. Some days he gets what we are having if safe- casseroles, meats, etc.
I guess my concern is that nutritionally its not what other non-BLW moms I know do. They do cereal and jarred baby food routinely every day making sure to get a balance of fruit/veggies, etc. But my understanding of BLW is that it's just for fun and learning and the nutrition still comes from breastmilk. So what do other BLW moms do? Also, when should I start offering it more than once a day? Thanks!!
