Hi Babyledweaningideas,

I would like to thank you for all your post.I have so many stories to share with my BLW journey with my baby girl she is now on her 7th month mark.

1. When did your baby commence BLW?

We started introducing her food at 6th month.I discussed with my husband and with my relative who’s taking care of my little Zerya. We sat down together and discussed the baby led weaning ideas and its purpose so we can agree together. They were both get scared with the idea and through showing them in TV your videos they agree and more confident to have the Baby Led Weaning.

We bought Ikea high chair,bibs,chopping board,peeler,knife to prepare her solid food introduction.It surprised me when I searched in Instagram your account,I found that we used the same things and that made me more confident.

2. What were bub’s first foods?

Her first solid was broccoli,and she loved it! We were so proud of her and really made us more confident do to the BLW. We bought organic vegetables and fruits for her and some of her first food was from our country my cousin sends me because she also did blw.She sent me all the green vegetables.

Zerya was not picky,she ate what we gave her. As the days passed, I started giving her chicken soup and really she loved it. I boilled the organic chicken with ginger, coconut oil for roasting the ginger and then chicken, add water and put all the vegetable such as sayote and prinkle with Moringga powder.

So far we gave these following steamed vegetables :
