Baby Led Weaning

Growing healthy babies with healthy appetites

If I was to try to quantify how much Babybear is eating…

I'd say it's about half as much as she was doing a month ago. That tummy bug really seemed to knock her for six, first of all, and after a burst of eating to make up what she'd lost, her appetite seems to have settled back down.
I'm assuming that it's to do with the fact that she seems to be cutting some new teeth, although I do wish they would hurry up as she's pretty miserable about it. Which makes me and her father rather miserable as well, because it is knocking her sleep out. The teeth, I mean, not the food – she's drinking plenty of milk.
Anyway, I'm not overly worried as she is still eating well, just not as well as she has previously done, the poor poppet.

    Seriously, teeth are a major design flaw. We should just have a zip on the gums to let them out (along with that zip in the tummy that the baby pops out of, obviously…). Teething is rubbish when you're a baby, and they don't do you many favours when you're older (root canal, anyone?!)
    Go dentures early, that's my view.

    aren't they, though? why on earth do they have to go through all this unnecessary pain? why couldn't we all just have been born with more, er, leathery but obviously attractive-at-the-same-time nipples and then breastfeeding a baby with teeth wouldn't be a problem?

    I'm coming to the conclusion that BLW mummies are unusually erudite and funny… and in Loll's case, naked (let's not even consider Moomin's “grease of your choice”)!

    Loll, i've just repaid the compliment and sprayed tea at your nude hiatus.
    but yes, bunny, no-one has yet topped 'grease of your choice'…
