Changes are Coming!

Elah will be 5 months old next week.... what the heck?!?!? I can't believe it! That means in just about a month we'll be starting foooooood! We've decided to go with BLW: Baby Led Weaning. Baby Led Weaning is essentially skipping pureed foods and starting your little one on finger foods... It is called BLW because as soon as a baby starts solid foods, they begin the process of weaning from breast milk or formula.  This is typically a long and slow process, but it allows your child to choose what they would like to eat, feed themselves, and beginners learn to chew before they learn to swallow. It's about learning tastes, textures, and hopefully Elah will be more willing to eat a variety foods because of it! You aren't supposed to start BLW until your child is sitting unsupported, grabbing things and putting them in their mouths... however we gave Elah a taste of bananas and apples last week! I think she will definatley enjoy trying new foods once she is really ready... she LOVED her apples and "banene's"!

And when she's not eating yummy food... she's stealing Nene's Pepsi bottle or Poppa Grey's Mountain Dew!
