Have You Heard of It?

(Just a quicky post- 
in the midst of learning to can, learning to make salsa, 
and trying to keep up with the garden produce!)

(or, Baby Led Solids).

We're trying it with Regan and loving it!

So far she's enjoyed spelt pizza crust, peas, carrots, zucchini, cucumber, squash, a de-splintered chicken bone, chicken, spelt pasta, one or two french fries (no salt!), an asparagus spear, roasted lamb, green beans, white rice, spelt bread crusts, the crunchy end of lettuce leaves, and broccoli spears.

Favorites so far are using raw summer squash, cucumber, or zucchini as teethers.

Yummy!  :)

Huh. Once again, there's a name for what we do instinctively. Guess I've been practicing baby-led solids for a long time now and just didn't know it! ;-) Clark hates to eat from a spoon...if it's not from my fingers or his fingers he's just plain not interested!

Same with Regan! I was all about making my own baby food for her, but she could've cared less. :) If it's on MY plate, however, it's exactly what she wants. :)

My interest is peeked by the chicken bone. (images of Bam Bam are bouncing in my head) :)
