After she eats I just scoop her up and toss her straight into the tub for a quick rinse.
Yesterday we tried cucumber for the first time.
Currently we do not have a set schedule of when she eats. I may try to instill a "breakfast" and "dinner" time in the next couple of weeks, but right now we are just exploring. We are also adjusting to how the foods are affecting her body. Yesterday she was having a rough time with her stomach. Almost every diaper was a "stinky" and she developed a little bit of a diaper rash...either from the citrus in the strawberries, or just from so many poos. We may let off the strawberries for a bit, focus on more veggies this week and see how it improves. I know her digestive system is going to need time to readjust so we are just taking it one day at a time.
Baby Led Weaning Notes:
- We are trying to introduce one food at a time to make sure she doesn't have any allergies. Some reports recommend one food every three or so days. We are basically doing one food every day, but skipping some days in between as well (not on purpose).
- We do not help her eat at all. We just simply put food on her tray and let her explore. If it gets in her mouth, great! If not, oh well.
- Other foods we are anxious to try: avocado, steamed carrots, peeled summer squash and zucchini and tofu. Any other suggestions for first foods?
