Hello all! Newbie here!
I have the most adorable (of course!) 5-month-old baby, Jack.
I am intending to do BLS/BLW with him. He is exclusively breast fed - and I'm very proud of that!
He's starting to show signs that he's ready - I think? He grabs at our food, plates and cuttlery when we eat. He watches the food as we take it from our plates to our mouths. He can hold toys well, picks them up himself and drags them towards him and of course they go straight into his mouth! For the past week or so he's been very fussy when we've been eating; I think he feels left out of the game! He's even lunged towards out food, with his mouth wide open!
But I'm reluctant to start before he's 6 months (in 3 weeks) as I've heard there is a risk of allergies forming (we have a lot of allergies in the family).
Also does it matter that he cannot sit unaided yet?
Any support/advice would be appreciated!
