Anyone have any advice for BLW with toddlers? I realize all kids are pretty much eating the same foods now, BLW or not. We are finding that LO still eats the foods she wants and ignores the rest (unfamiliar?). Then she asks and signs MORE MORE MORE for the things she likes to eat. The girl would exist on blueberries alone if we let her. (Should we let her?) Back when we were starting with BLW if she asked or signed MORE then we gave her more.
We try to mix up her dinner plate with half of what we are eating for dinner, which she won't eat 90% of the time, and half with things like fruit, yogurt, cheese, etc. The other night she took her hummus and spread it halfway up her arm before I could stop her.
I realize a lot of BLW is experimenting with food texture etc. so she does touch her food a lot, but it's still more playing than eating.
She's perfectly fine with her height and weight so I am not concerned for her health. I just feel like she is at the age where she gets dinner and that's that. I definitely don't want to be cooking two dinners, and I want to get away from adding in snacky type foods at dinnertime.
She still nurses quite frequently and I realize that she won't EAT until I wean her. I nurse her at 4pm and 7:30pm. Dinner is at 6pm. She doesn't eat much better at daycare though, and that's qquite a long stretch to go between nursing, you'd think she'd be hungry?
What are you all doing?
