Let us guide you along week-by-week!)
We're just over a week and a half in and have tried pears, apples, cucumbers, steamed carrots/zucchini/sweet potatoes and avocado (super slippery even in cereal dust!). She loved the little piece of toast I shared too :)
Oh, and a couple small spoonfuls of yogurt and oatmeal. Oatmeal was SUPER messy! I'm glad I am not doing purees because the couple times I've handed her a spoon she rips it out of my hands and wants to do it herself. BLW seems great so far although the gagging is a little scary at first.
JaneBeam:How large do you leave the pieces? LO isn't BLW, but we're trying table foods and she doesn't have the "pincher" grab down so she is having a really difficult time. I think bigger pieces would help but I don't know how big.
We are going with pretty big pieces to start... BLW says french fry size so they have something to grab onto. I just broke her toast into 4 pieces, and her banana gets cut in half and then quartered long wise. Maybe the size of my thumb or larger?
