Using Shop Bought ‘Baby Food’ in a Baby Led Weaning Routine

Using Shop Bought 'Baby Food' in a Baby Led Weaning Routine

Disclosure: We were sent the featured products for the purpose of this post however all opinions are my own.

When we had LP we decided that Baby Led Weaning was the right route for us and thankfully when we chose to start baby weaning LP loved it too, it clicked and worked and we haven’t looked back. In hindsight though I was very much a BLW purist when we started weaning her onto solid foods – I followed the baby led weaning book to a tee, everything was home made and I scrutinised everything for the minutest traces of salt. I wouldn’t say it was bad to be that way but looking back there is no way that I can do things the same way now I have two children.

Weaning has Begun!

Weaning has Begun!

Little Man is 6 months on 10th November and we had said that we’d wait until then to start Baby Led Weaning but over the last few days LM has been trying to take food from us and gnawing on everything. He was also very happy to sit in his Bumbo. Add to that the fact that he has been teething a lot of the last week and I thought it might be nice for him to chew on a cucumber stick – soothing for his gums and starting our BLW journey at the same time.

I don’t think you can ever have too many scone recipes!

Well I’m new to all this Blogging malarkey but I guess I should start with an introduction! I am Donna, Mummy to my beautiful Little Pickle (LP) born 28th August 2011. The last 7 months have been trying, but have also been the best of my life. I am loving being a mother but in all honesty it isn’t a walk in the park – some days are knackering, some are tedious and some I just feel like crying! But most days are rewarding at least in a small part and the whole journey that LP and I are making is one huge learning curve!
