The big news of late is introducing solids. We are doing a modified baby led weaning (which simply means we are going straight to real food rather than starting off with purees) and it's been going very well. That said, I'm not doing a militant version of baby led weaning by any means. She often gets what we are eating or baby friendly adult foods but she will also sometimes get baby food. Essentially we do what works for us at that particular time - which is the ultimate motto for a happy parent in my opinion. The key in baby led weaning is that they learn to chew and move the food around in their mouths BEFORE they learn to swallow. Which means you have a few weeks or months of a lot of messy chewed food all over the place. I'm happy to say we've come out on the other side and she is now getting more food in her stomach than on the floor. Hooray!
In other news, she is getting more mobile by the minute. She isn't crawling yet but we are expecting it any day now. I'm not mentally ready for it at all but it's coming just the same. Anyone have baby gate suggestions that won't damage our woodwork and walls?
