Baby-Led weaning - first week

So, we stopped pureeing Micha's food and got on board
 of the Baby-Led Weaning train...

I'm planning to document our journey into solid foods and 
do a post once in a while on how it's going.
(Exciting stuff huh? Mama, this one's for you!)

--------------------------------




So far the ride has been good! 
We're one week into giving Micha solids and he loves it! (as in: practically inhales the food I put in front of him.)

I still breastfeed him for all of his meals but in between I've been giving him different fruits and vegetables to discover and taste. 
So far he's had pear, avocado, banana, carrot, sweet potato and pumpkin.

In the next few weeks I'm planning to give him broccoli, potato, rice and something bready. 
(I'm not 100 percent sure about the bread though, I've heard the gluten in bread may cause allergies if you give it to them too early, any advice on that?)

I just received this book in the mail today, 
we're planning to use it as a guide to help us along.

Here's a little video of Micha eating a pear. 
I'm speaking in Dutch and I say: 'Micha's eating a pear, all by himself'. 
And later in the video I say: 'It's difficult to hold hey?'

I can't wait to see Micha discover all the food,
 but I still love nursing him, so there's no pressure!



Love, Maria
