I am sure you are all excellent mamas and that you are following the lead of your babies and needs of yourselves and your families with thoughtfulness and care.
I also just want to make people more aware of the concept of BLW. When my son was 4 mos I hadn't heard of it and I thought I was "supposed" to feed him purees like everyone else. I actually made & froze a couple batches of purees but it felt so wrong to me (and by wrong I mean, wrong for my personal situation, not necessarily wrong in general)... then I did more research and was sooo relieved to hear about BLW but still skeptical & afraid to try it... so now, 7 months later (with the same batches of purees still hanging out in the back of the freezer untouched), I feel like I *need* to share this with others so they don't go through the confusion & anguish I did regarding the purees and early feeding! So I apologize if I came off too pushy/defensive/condescending -- totally not my intent!!!
