Wow...one year olds are tough to feed...we've been blessed with a fairly good eater, however, we've had to exercise our patience skills when experimenting with gravity, and throwing every last bloody pea on the floor to watch it go into the dog's mouth...wastefulness is one of my all time biggest pet peeves, couple that with minor control issues that I'm still learning to let go...breathe, Sarah, breathe....thankfully, we have worm composting and chickens that we can throw the scraps that even Squid won't eat.
But I wanted to have a page to share a few victories that really worked well for little Finnegan. We are Baby Led Weaning moderates...we'll mash up things every now and then, but overall we try to let him feed himself and play for the second half of the meal, after he's gotten a bit of it down. And if it's starts to go on the floor, we'll give him a few chances and then off it goes, he just has to visit for a little while. As long as he's not fussing, we're not fussing.
