So my 20 month old Daughter totally demolished an ENTIRE steak to herself tonight for dinner. THIS right here is the reason why ignoring all the twits who promote and encourage early weaning and waiting until 6 months is so important! Primrose has NEVER been spoon fed and we waited until exactly 6 months as recommended by the World Health Organisation. Since 6 months she was eating rare steaks as well as a huge variety of other foods. Maybe this is the lazy way but why would you bother making purees and spoon feeding when babies are totally capable of self-feeding. Plus why blend all of the amazing flavours together when they can experience different tastes and textures and flavours this way! Her absolute LOVE of food amazes me every day. She is a confident eater and loves using a fork and spoon all by herself. I STRONGLY believe weaning this way encourages a healthy relationship with food. Let the baby be in control not your 'aeroplane' spoon! She controls her body and her stomach and her appetite not me!
SHE MAKES ME SO PROUD!!! #yesimoneofthosemums #sorrynotsorry #againstearlyweaning #babyledweaning #forkinonehand #steakfordinner #dinnerofchampions #fridaynightdinner #primroselouise #20monthsold #primmyvsfood #demolished #gentleparenting #parentwithlove #virgingut #outdatedadvice #healthy #toddler #toddlercalm
