    Default Baby-led solid food introduction

    Sorry if this topic has already been posted, but I was very excited to find this link.

    I am thinking about trying it.

    Hee Hee...I am giggling! I thought your signature said you were tandem nursing all three of your boys and I choked on my coffee! Not that it would be a bad thing, just difficult!

    I guess I do this child led feeding. I do mush up the food, but DS feeds himself with the spoon. He is almost 8 months. He is pretty good at it!

    Count me in, if this works I might get more than three spoonfuls of food in my own mouth while it is still hot! The pictures are great! Thanks for the link.

    I didn't read the entire article, but I look at the pics. I thought I was the only person that would give a toothless baby a whole fruit to eat by himself. Everybody kept telling me how crazy and lazy I was. My baby never liked mashed food, he never liked bb food jar either; he likes home made food and lumpy or as a whole, his favorites are bananas, pears and broccoli.

    LOL, I thought I was the only one too!

    I hate spoon feeding, so I waited way past 6 months, despite everyone telling me "Oh, look. He's hungry! Look at the way he's watching you eat!" But they didn't realize he watched everything that way! I never did spoon feed him, just let him feed himself when we got around to it. The one time I did try feeding him some cereal, he threw it up! I didn't waste money on jarred foods, just gave him chunks of soft stuff or a whole fruit to mess with. He loved avocado slices, pears, destringed chunks of sweet potato, bananas, mango and cheerios.

    At 20 months, he eats a whole apple, unpeeled, unsliced. I just hand it to him. Makes my life easier!

    Yeah, I never spoon fed much either. Mostly I would just put thawed frozen peas on his tray, or I would give him pureed foods but he would get his own spoon. I find it much, much easier to wait until after 6 months and let the kid feed himself.
