Baby Led Weaning – Avocado – 6 month old baby {video}

Our first Baby Led Weaning food experience?  A Tasty, nutrient rich, messy-as-hell avocado.  Our tiny baby had previously eaten avocado when it was spoon-fed to him, and he really seemed to enjoy it. So, what the heck, we gave it a whirl!   I cut an avocado in half,  then sliced that half into four pieces, and kept the skin on so it was easier for him to hold.  The avocado was slightly ripe, but not completely mushy.  This short…

What Is Baby Led Weaning

Just when you think you have a handle on ,how to care for your new baby – suddenly, they’re six months old and now you’re nose deep in the process feeding them solid foods.  WHAT?!?  You gotta be kidding me, right?  I wish.   As if finding the perfect bottle, or learning how to breastfeed wasn’t crazy enough – now you get to deal with real people foods, and real-smelling poop.  ::gag:: Attractive right?  But, between you and I, in…

I Went In For An Ultrasound

It started off as a pretty crummy morning. But by the end, I had a pretty big smile on my face… Here’s how it all went down: First, I forget that I had an appointment. I tumbled out of bed, threw on jeans and an only slightly smelly t-shirt (that may, or may not have been covered in baby puke and dried food) and ran out the door at 6:30 am.  My cold car frantically sped through the city as…
