first baby led weaning foods

As you may have seen we made the decision to wean Alby at 4 months of age . Now his 6 months we have started to introduce a wide variety of different foods. We have made the decision to do baby led weaning with Alby. We did this with Ava and just found it worked for our family . Plus I’m too lazy to make things up in batches for him and purée them down . I thought It might be helpful for people if I shared some of the meals Alby has enjoyed in his first proper month of baby led weaning. Here is my list of baby led weaning starter foods

I will say some days he doesn’t have three meals. With the warmer weather he is wanting milk over food which is fine . He is loving food and I haven’t found anything yet that he will turn his nose up at.

With Ava I wasn’t very adventurous with the food I gave her . Which may be one of the reasons she sticks to the same selections of food. So I’m going to be making sure to try to cook different things for Alby. If they go down well I will share them with you . Or do you have any recommendations for easy baby led weaning meals . Something that’s a little bit different.
