BLW 17-18 month old

I want to try BLW my EBF soon to be 18 month old. Anyone just starting to do this? Trying to get into the BLW group on here but I haven't been accepted yet. Any suggestions or tips? She does drink water and juice on her own in a sippy & will eat Cheerios, and rice and lima/red beans

  • Whoa wtf? You don't give your baby food? Like PP said, it's just feeding at this point. Does your pediatrician know you don't give meals? This is super strange.

  • Yeah, what they said ^^. just give your kiddo the same food you're eating! She should be fine! (I do still cut up my daughter's meat, but she's only got 10teeth.)

    I don't specifically follow this, but it's a good place to start on portion sizing for a toddler.

  • Usually if people are doing blw they have done research about it. The original post is very strange.

    Do you mean that your baby eats pureed plus those few foods?

  • Woah. Seriously?  :/
    Start feeding that kiddo STAT...EBF at this point just means "exclusively giving breast milk and not WCM...as a beverage with breakfast, lunch and dinner." Most nutrients should be coming from food at this point and not BM.
