He's only eating bits here and there. I try to feed him food at least once a day. He's still frequently nursing. I get confused over BLW vs traditional weaning, so I just break stuff up in my fingers and give it to him that way in manageable pieces. He can't pick bits of food up by himself yet and I am nervous of him choking. A lot of time he will just push out food with his tongue still.
So far I've given him papaya, banana, mango, orange, pineapple, berries. And some green smoothie that had lettuce and bananas in it. His favorite foods so far are mango and pineapple.
Once I chewed up some raw green beans and gave it to him. He wasn't impressed much...understandably.
We are a vegetarian and gluten-free family with an emphasis on raw foods.
I am delaying grains (including quinoa) until he's after a year.
Someone suggested giving him young coconut jelly...that sounds good. Hummus also sounds promising. Sweet potato too.
Sassyfirechick...does your LO or did he/she have any trouble digesting the beans?
Thanks for the help. I feel really anxious about this!
