Hi Ladies Some of you may remember me, I've not been on for several months- just too busy. Has the forum changed/ I'm sure there used to be a section for traditional weaning and BLW? Anyway, my situation at present is that Blake started weaning at 17 weeks as advised by the HV (weight plateu/ guzzling milk etc) and we went down the traditional route of purees. It was fantastic, he would try everything, gobble down bowlfuls, and even had pudding after meals. Then over the last week or so he has started refusing to eat. I've been getting the button lip treatment and he complains throughout each meal. Firm favourites are even being refused. I have been tricking him into eating by offering his beaker and slipping the spoon in when his mouth is open. Taking a step back I've realised that food isn't essential at this point and force feeding is the quickest way to a fussy eater! Last night I bit the bullet and gave BLW a go. I've never been a fan and decided while pregnant that it wasn't something I wanted to try, but it seems Blake is forcing my hand! He tried everything I gave him. This morning I tried to spoon him some porridge and got a telling off, so I made him some toast fingers and he dove in So now I need some BLW ideas and quick! Also, is it worth buying the book?
