We are doing BLW and I have a few questions, could use some direction or advice!
1. I have read conflicting info on when it's ok to start giving pineapple. Is it considered a citrus fruit like oranges? My DS is 8.5 months and we have no history of allergies. I gave some to DS today without thinking, then realized maybe it was too soon. He did love it though!
2. Okay, cheese, I have read conflicting info on when to start that too. Can I give it to him yet? I wanted to try some string cheese with him. If okay, how would I offer that? Cut up in bite size pieces, in strings, or the whole piece (scary!)?
3. My last question is about overfeeding solids. He really has never refused anything and doesn't stop eating until I stop giving it to him. When I stop he doesn't fuss for more, but would have kept eating. Only a few times has he left anything on his tray. I know with BLW they are supposed to set the pace, but I have a hard time knowing if he is eating too many solids and following his cues. He seems happy to be eating and enjoys it so much, but not sure he's really hungry! I try to BF each time before solids. Just recently he has been spacing out BF during the day to 3 or 4 hours, up til then its been every 2 hours. At night is 2-4 hours between feeds. So I think he is getting plenty of BM, but daytime feeds are so short and distracted it's hard to tell how much he gets.
Anyway- sorry for rambling! TIA!!
