My unintentional blogging hiatus came in strong and hard. I went from having two kids in school to having them home for summer. Then I gave birth to Audrey last July. Oh, and the whole global pandemic thing kind of put a wrench in things as well. It’s funny, you think being stuck at home I’d have more time, but it has somehow seemed to work opposite of that. Well blogging went onto the back burner. Over the last 7 months or so, I’ve gathered up so many content ideas. Over the 6 months, I’ve been doing a lot of research and development into this post. AKA, Baby Led Weaning. It was going to be so hard to feed 3 little people, plus myself if I was doing baby food. I decided and talked to our pediatrician about Baby Led Weaning and go the green light at 6 months. From that day forward, she was / is basically eating everything we eat; some unhealthy snacks she probably shouldn’t have as well.
Please note that this list is just from our personal experiences. While I’m sure some of the following items aren’t recommended or are taboo to feed babies, you do you. Check with your pediatrician if you have any specific questions on how to feed after 6 months.
It’s a pretty random list but that’s usually how it goes around here! I still laugh that my baby has tried Ox Tail and I have not. There were quite a few things that ended up not being added to the list that I just forgot to add to my note, like scallops and shrimp! It was a ton of fun to watch her try new things and I’m so glad we did this! She’s such a great eater. Although I’m not sure this really has anything to do with the variety of foods she was introduced too.
As you can see, she knows how to get into some food.
