thanks to all you ladies who answered my pp...now i have another question! I looked into BLW and watched some videos on youtube and DH and I were shocked to see babies sucking on real food like chicken, toast, broccoli etc...I'd be sooo worried about DS choking! Have any of you had your lo choke on food? Don't get me wrong...i loved watching the videos and would have a blast watching ds try real food for the first time...not to mention it would be alot simpler to not buy baby food. just concerned....thx!
