Baby Led Weaning

Growing healthy babies with healthy appetites


Wash, chop into pieces about two inches long and then slice the pieces into wedges. Remove the seeds if you like. I don't tend to, it depends how fresh and young you think the courgette is (and how fresh and young you are feeling at that particular moment).
Really handy to take out with you as they don't make much mess, not a great deal gets eaten but the babies enjoy sucking and chewing on the sticks and it seems to help their teeth.
I have also given my baby some steamed courgette, which she enjoyed and a lot more went in, although if I'm honest she likes it best lightly fried in butter. Just like her parents…

    I cut courgette in half then each into another half then into quarters. I cook or steam sticks for about 2 mins and give one stick to Alex. He is sucking flesh with seeds on until there is only skin left which I happily take away and eat myself : -)

    sorry, i only just realised that you were saying you eat Alex's leftovers, Ella. Wouldn't you rather have chocolate?

    Angelcake loved steamed courgette pieces, but raw resulted in lots of disturbing gurning, coughing and an itty bit of gagging…could be that the skin (however thin) was giving her gip. She's only been experimenting with food for about a week, so this may well quickly improve.
    I didn't worry me, but Hubbie and the In-Laws were beginning to question my decision to give her solids,…

    THe gagging stuff is really normal, Boomer at first did it quite a lot, but I can't even remember the last time she did it (she's now 8 mths). Relatives do tend to panic at the sight of gagging but they will get over it!

    I see that your first day at work has not interfered with your sense of mischief, Emmysmum… how did it go?

    Thanks for asking, Aitch! Not too bad. felt we'd achieved rather a lot by both being washed, fully clothed, and making it to work/nursery at the appropriate time. I even had mascara on (mostly) the right place. And matching socks. Was horrible leaving her, but once I got started the morning flew by. Went to Tesco on the way home and stocked up on organic veggies for BLW D-day…cannae wait.

    was very restrained and only phoned the once! she was ok, I guess, but seemed in a bit of a huff when I collected her. Can 6m old babies be in a strop?

    My little one is in a huff with me sometimes. Usually when her dad feeds her expressed milk in a bottle. She won't look at me as if to say where's the boob? She has taken to arching her back, straighting body and nearly banging head on what ever is near!!! She has a temper like her dad!!
