BLW with friends

This week Sebastian and I had a play date with my friend Ginger and her toddler Ophelia.  The day included a lot of food, starting with bananas for the kids while the grown-ups drank coffee. They also snacked on Goldfish and Scooby Doo graham crackers – Not necessarily the kind of snacks I would purchase, but a fun treat. Sebastian has just learned to point and would point to the box when he wanted more.

Ginger didn’t do purees with Ophelia either, and we chatted about BLW. I remember when my husband and I babysat her daughter and were really nervous about the snacks in her diaper bag. I admit that baby-led weaning would freak me out if I hadn’t discovered it when and how I did!

Spread of melon & fishFirst bite of tilapia

For dinner we had spicy dirty rice and tilapia. Sebastian is not a fan of spicy foods but ate a good amount of  rice before it became too much for him – He didn’t cry when it got hot, just stopped eating it, so that’s progress! He cooled his mouth with chunks of cantaloupe and fish.

The tilapia was a hit, and Sebastian readily gobbled up his portion as well as the piece Ophelia (age 2 & 1/2) rejected. He made a really funny face when he first tasted the fish but quickly decided that he loved it. I really hope that he doesn’t grow picky as he gets older – I love showing off his healthy appetite, and everyone loves to feed my kid!
