BLW and paleo/WAPF (x-posted on FB)

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Anyone tried BLW with some more paleo/WAPF style first foods? I was thinking we'll try avocado first but I'd like to do egg yolk and organic liver and maybe some roast meats. I guess just cut up the same way one would with fruit or veg and let her gnaw away?

BLW?

 

I follow a primal/paleo lifestyle, therefore she'll eat what I eat. I've offered avocado, egg yolk, baked squash, sweet potatoes, mashed banana, and gnawing on an apple. She is curious and will try it, but prefers to nurse.

The liver is a really great idea, actually. I'm not terribly fond of it, so I don't really think of it. But livers are cheap, nutritious, and easy to come by. I see no reason why a paleo-type diet wouldn't be okay. Honestly, that's what babies really need as first foods, right? Good proteins, fruits, veggies, and unprocessed oils... Sounds like great things for babies.

I have let DD have a few bites of my oatmeal, and some brown rice cereal (I ground the rice and cooked it on the stovetop), but that's probably about the full gamut of grain she will get until at least a few months down the road. I've given DD some ground beef, and also a few bites of chicken, but she seemed none too pleased about those.

In many cultures, meat is the first food. I wouldn't think you'd have any issues with a paleo focus for first foods.
