    I’d like to see crunchy, but healthy food. My 12month old BLW daughter is fussy – she enjoys breadsticks, biscuits/crackers, ricebubbles, etc. Also raw carrot and celery – but can’t manage the hard bits she bites off, and spits those out after a while. She eats very little and still has 5 milk feeds a day.

    Hooray, the new book is just what I’m after. Our baby girl turned 6 months a couple of days ago and is into BLW with gusto already! I love it. There doesn’t seem like there could be any better way to feed a baby like her. I can’t believe how thrilled she is to be sitting up at the table with us.

    I’m disappointed the cookbook will not be available to buy until she is 7 months old, so in the meantime anything you can put on the website that is appropriate for the first month would be appreciated. I’ve read the first book from cover to cover, but don’t own a copy, and I’ve forgotten the details on what foods to introduce when. Ideas for snacks when you are out and about would be particularly useful.

    Hi, I am just about to try the BLW with with 8 month old, who does not like being spoon fed. My doctor recommended the BLW technique. Please post some recipes on the site, your book is not available until January in Canada. I echo Giselle’s request above. Thanks!

    My 9 month old son started on pureed foods at 6 months but is no longer interested in being fed via spoon. He is interested in the food we are eating, so I’m looking for ways to give him table food that hold his interest and introduce him to a wide variety of foods. So far I’ve given him whole, peeled apples and pears to suck and chew. He also likes to share a banana with me. And the other night he held a big broccoli tree and sucked on it. What are some other options? He only has two teeth and still tends to gag when pieces of food go to the back of his throat, so he actually has an easier time swallowing purees, but he does not want them. I’d love to know some safe options for my baby! Thank you and I look forward to the book and the posts.

    I started feeding my daughter at just over 4 months on pureed food and i put a few lumps in to so she could get used to the texture. She’s now going to be 6 months next week and this week weve started BLW and she loves it. Shes always been intrested in the food we’re eating and trying to grab at our plates.
    It was my health visitor that suggested i try BLW when i first started feeding my daughter but she didnt know much about it but everything i seem said to wait till she was 6 months old like i should of waited to give her solids till she was 6 months old
