Talking about her range of food...

I would phone in, but I'm at work. I'm going to email. Anyone want to ring?

Have just emailed:

"My babies have both just eaten what we're eating, no pureeing, no spooning, just feeding themselves with their hands and then cutlery.

What does Annabel think of that way of weaning? It seems she likes to make things very complicated!"

I was tempted to add "and it seems she wants to send parents skint with her range of ice cube trays, bibs, pots, blenders, books, the whole shebang" but I didn't...!

Did you hear what she just said? Babies of a certain age will only like foods they can pick up and eat themselves! But only after you've spent hundreds on her ranges for a few weeks..

I know!

And then - she's writing a book about finger foods!

Haha at "they'll all eat this" - a fresh fruit ice lolly. She's not met my DS1 - he'd have LOATHED that - still would at 3.5.

She was selling her range with the mention of the AK ice lolly moulds (TM) though...

But I bet her finger food book still has MASSES of ingredients listed.

But only lumps after 9 months for fear of choking 'cos they store food in their mouth. Does anyone LO do this? Bruno always has water after he's eaten so anything still in there gets washed down.

I think Aitch should go on LBC - as a guest - to give the balanced view to this!

Damn, I probably shouldn't have emailed. Damn.

i love this 'babies have to learn to chew' bit. seriously, how does sucking down a puree teach someone to chew?

Dunno. It's meant to help develop speech too, baby rice.

I think it's so babies learn to say "Get this STUFF away from me NOW!" or something?

Hunkermunker - mine doesn't like ice lollies either. She likes frozen carrot though!

The Pickle can't stand ice lollies and has NEVER stored food in her mouth - it quite simply gets spat out or eaten, always has.

Bruno had a piece of banana in his mouth once at baby group - he stole some of mine so I wasn't best pleased! It was as if it was stuck on the back of his roof. Next time I looked it was gone - spit or swallow, I've no idea!

The bubs definitely stores food in his mouth. But the pieces are always very small. Like the time I was trying ot figure out why he couldn't latch when a tiny piece of broccoli worked it's way forward and out onto my nipple. I swept a finger in there and found a few more.

I have to say, I'm super pleased we don't have to listen to this AK woman speak. Though I get an earful from general baby food adds as is.

I was in a queue this morning behind a pregnant woman buying a copy of "100 Baby Purees" or whatever it's called. Ooh I was itching to tap her on the shoulder and say 'It doesn't have to be that way! You can feed them "human food" and it's so much easier!'

Mind you, someone who's buying puree books before the baby's even born is probably loving the whole idea of the dinky ice-cube trays and so forth anyway...
