Baby Led Weaning - Toast

Now Paige is 6 months old we have started our baby led weaning journey.

I decided we would start with toast. Seemed like an easy choice and it has defiantly paid off.

The toast is always lightly toasted with a little margarine. It is meant to be easier to swallow if the bread I toasted rather than just giving the normal bread.

Day one
Didn't go as well as I had planned. Paige played with toast rather than eating it but I figured that it was something different so she was just getting used to it.

Day two
She took a bite! I was amazed. She pulled a face as always with new foods but did have a few more bites.

Day three and four
Like a pro she picked up the toast and straight away took bites and has continued to do so.




She has gagged but not choked. There is a big difference and I'm sure I read somewhere that is it actually good for them to gag as it teaches them. I always make sure to watch Paige 100% of the time when she is eating just in case she doesn't choke!



It's very messy but very fun and I can't wait to try her with more things. She loves picking it up, playing and then feeding herself.

Next up carrots!!

Thanks for reading,

  1. Have you considered not just introducing one food at a time but actually just giving her some of what you are having? It can be messy at first and they don't actually need to swallow the food for months yet.

    My blog has posts on blw. Good luck - it's an exciting time.

    1. Yep. She does have some of our food too but we wanted to start with single foods first x
