Pizza, pincer, and lots more tastes…

In the past two days, Daisy has tried: some fingers of pizza crust from a homemade pizza (she absolutely loved it), hummus from a ‘loaded spoon’ (resulting in this hummus goatee), a bit of peanut butter sandwich (rejected by her big brother, so we finished it off between us), a roasted new potato from our first crop in the garden (this was also a major hit), more apple, pineapple and melon, and some more home grown courgette. hummus goateeReflecting on the difference between first and second time around, I think we can surmise from this that I am much more laid back about what she tries at this early stage! She is still nine days away from turning six months, but I think she’s now tried so many different things that we may as well start branching into some porridge and maybe some yoghurt. She isn’t sitting up very steadily yet though, and I think runnier foods will probably be better once she can go in the highchair and explore them from her own plate or tray.

I was also very impressed this morning when she picked up a blueberry in a perfect pincer grip! Not straight away, I should say, but after a few experiments involving different combinations of fingers, she worked out exactly how to do it. Unfortunately, however, she seems to have inherited her brother’s distrust of blueberries. He has only eaten one in his whole life, and Daisy looked similarly dubious, relative to how keen she has been to immediately pop everything else she’s been offered straight into her mouth. She played with four different blueberries over breakfast time, but only one was licked, and even when she managed to squash one in her fist, she didn’t try sucking at the juice. Ah well. They cost a fortune so maybe it’s no great loss!

Hi! I’m a second time mum embarking once again on Baby-led Weaning. A couple of years ago, I blogged about our experiences introducing our son Daniel to foods with a BLW approach. Now our little Daisy is here, I thought I'd keep a record of how it goes this time around - just for fun!
