Aaargh. Much negativity re:BLW. I thought I'd got over it!

Oh, we're done with all that vegetable-steaming and mess, our children are cutlery-wielding, spaghetti-chomping angels... at least some of the time.

Nice to be considered a hippy - I'm way too straight looking for work for anyone to really think that :wink:

I can't believe people notice that much, let alone care that much, let alone are so rude about it.

What a pain for you ... BLW is so fantastic I can't believe everyone doesn't do it - tell them to get with the programme!

You could always tell people that AK recommends that purees are only given for the first two weeks and that babies should be moved onto solid food soon after that.

I was shocked when I found that out, she's basically saying you need all these expensive products for two weeks!

lol at 'hippy' mum's - i have decided that i am one - Ellie is breastfed, i refused to use dummies, she has cloth nappies, and is being BLWed oh and i've got myself a book of baby knitting patterns to have a go at!!
everyone remarks how content she is compared to lots of her friends.

Speaking of her friends, was out at pub for lunch with baby group and they are all there shovelling in purees, couple of babies allowed some of their mums bread but only when broken into tiny pieces and pushed into mouths. Ellie had a couple of rice cakes, a giant wedge of bread and a good helping of my butternut squash and sage risotto only for another mum to ask if Ellie doesn't do proper food at lunch time, just snacks?

How rude, she sat next to me and saw exactly what was eaten. Think she was just jealous that i could sit and chat rather than spoon feed mush!

Mummy to 3 scrumptious BLWers, who sometimes rebel + ask for spoonfeeding (2007, 2010, 2013). Antilop chair, slings, cloth nappies, no steam mop but awaiting permission for special handshake which probably involves porridge.

we're on prefolds tinksmum, they're just a lot easier (and a lot less washing with a nappy serivce LOL!)

Hmmm sounds like lots of judgemetnal jealous folks to me. Think i may be turing into one myself actually. Had to lecture my sister earlier who is determined to purree wean at 4 months :o despite having watched shorty shovel goose ans stuffing in at xmas

Then when she went home, i realised just what a nazi i was being (didn't help that she was refusing to feed her 10 week old - he was starving but she's into strict routine and didn't want to feed him an hour and a half early - just lugged him round the living room getting stressed because he was whiny - bah grrrr he shut up and was happy as larry when she finally gave in after i'd nagged her a teensy bit)

anyway i digress, (cor i bet you missed me eh, i do that a lot). what was my point ? oh yeah, each to their own !!! they're just jealous :D
