Hi! My baby is 7 m.o. and we've been playing w food for about a month. We're doing mostly BLW, though I do load up spoons for her to play with & eat from. We have some concerns about iron (she was 5 weeks early) so I'm trying to focus on iron-rich foods (split peas on a spoon). She loves managing the spoon and is enjoying food so far.
My question is with regard to my husband. I think he's both uncomfortable with the mess of BLW and excited to finally be able to be in on feeding our baby! I can understand both of these. But he's starting to do the whole airplane-food business when it seems she's done playing. I'd rather her mess around with the food and stop when she's done. This is making dinner a little stressful. I don't want to be bossy. But I also don't want the baby to eat more than a few finger- or spoon-fuls.
Anybody have any recommendations? (This isn't so much a baby question as a husband question, but you smart ladies probably have some ideas!)
