We really wanted to try baby led weaning. With Paige we did a mixture of baby led and purees and we have ended up doing that with Parker. At first he wasn't really taking to baby led weaning so we did more puree then after a couple of weeks he was really into the baby led. So now we do a mixture, just like with Paige.
He seems to be doing better than Paige did with weaning. She didn't really care for food that much but Parker loves it. He will have a couple of spoons at lunch and tea time.
The Spuni spoons come in a pack of two, with a range of colour combos, and are priced at £14. I personally think £14 is a bit steep for spoons but they are well made and do the job.
Baby led weaning is great in my eyes. The baby gets to eat, learn and try new real foods. With Parker w also offer him whatever we are having for tea. His favorites so far are banana, toast, tuna pasta bake and sunday dinner. We give him finger sized pieces and he just bites off bits, chews and eats. Simple! Some people are a bit nervous when it comes to baby led weaning. They can gag on food but gagging on food is completely different to choking on food. Their gag reflex is really quite strong to stop them from choking. Its also good for them to gag on the food, it helps them understand how to chew and eat it properly.
Did you prefer puree or baby led weaning?
