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
Re: BLW 17-18 month old
At 18 months old it's just called eating, not baby lead weaning. An 18 month old should be eating meals just like you are. Is she really only eating Cheerios and beans?! You are doing her a huge disservice by not giving her regular food at this point. She's a toddler, not a baby. She should have 3 solid meals a day plus 2 snacks. Juice is completely unnecessary for an 18 month old but that is your decision.
You don't need to join a group, just start feeding her. Give her the same meals you eat. I'd start soon or you'll have a hell of time getting her to eat anything at all.
I don't specifically follow this, but it's a good place to start on portion sizing for a toddler.
OP are you going to come back???
Do you mean that your baby eats pureed plus those few foods?
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.
