Why Not Try It?

I think my main top tip is ‘Try It Out’ – you really don’t know if your baby will like a food unless you try them. Today, for example, baby Boomer loved some crayfish tails with pretty spicy sauce. Grandmaw was quite surprised especially as she drank quite a lot of water after her spicy crayfish salad.


Other surprising things Boomer has tried and liked are ;


Lovely juicy organic mint and lamb burger (eaten outdoors at a food fair)  – admittedly I held this while she sucked at a bit but she was peeved when I removed it.


Very, very, very mature cheese – this stuff was strong, the kind of stuff that even the smell makes you wince


Bit of Naan dipped in curry sauce – admittedly quite a creamy sauce , and before you shriek in horror it was only a tiny bit so she could join in with the social side of Mummy and Daddy’s Friday night take away binge.


Please don't judge me harshly , these represent only a small section of our diet, there is plenty of fruit and veg in a normal day – honest.

    Baby A (yes another one) licked all the courgette garlic and chilli sauce off the pasta we had the other day. She loved it. She had a chunk of the chilli chicken we had on Sunday and really enjoyed that 'til she started rubbing her eyes. Oops.

    actually, i've gone round and individually hand-changed her name to Babybird yesterday… so hard to get a good nickname i find… I'm tempted just to tell you all our damned names.
    and yes, chilli, I've started using dried flakes after a disastrous incident where i must've touched Babybird on the face with fingers (mine) that had just been cutting chillis.

    just a further update, Boomer enjoyed a special lunch out with granny and grandpa and munched her way through some garlic bread, spicy chicken and herby creme fraiche dip

    Oh, thank you, thank you, thank you!

    Grandma was all crazy over me having June Bug (yea, about the nick names…) eat a pepper cucumber veggie spread. JB loved it last night and didn’t have to drink a whole lot, but Grandma was rather worried that she would “get used to” spicy foods. Now, what is wrong with that? Nothing, I say.
