Jeanette says January 25, 2012 at 1:07 AM I think BLW is a great idea, actually! I didn’t go “all the way” with my child on this, mostly because I didn’t know about it when I first started her on solids, but I started as soon as I became aware of the idea. She’d get her own plate in front of her with what she could eat of our dinner (vegetables etc), and I just let her do with it as she pleased. I can still remember the looks on other mom’s faces when she helped herself to my brussel sprouts and enjoyed every minute of it. 😆 I think it’s great that you brought this up, by the way, as I’m sure I’d started with it right away if I’d only have known back then. I’m glad I semi-did it anyway, though, because her love of fruits and vegetables remain to this day (she’s 4), and I know she got a lot of vitamins as a very young child thanks to this approach. If I have another baby one day, I will go all the way and skip porridges and purees alltogether.
