I have decided to start LO on baby led weaning at 6 months old which is in a couple of weeks. He can't wait to eat now - always interested in our food. But I'm feeling lazy. I exclusively breast feed and haven't even been bothered/able to express. Life with 2 kids is not easy. So waiting as long as I can before I create more work for myself. Baby led weaning should reduce the work I need to do as LO should just eat what we eat but with less salt. LO's older brother did a mixture of purees and baby led weaning. I didn't really know about it before but love the concept now. Older brother seemed to be able to use a spoon and feed himself very early on. He was able to let us know and pick out bones/pips/stones by himself too. Anyone that knows him knows he loves his food!
