Thanks God, i found article about Baby Led Weaning here. The most important thing from BLW method is Food Is Fun Until One. It means before one year old, breastmilk or baby formulated milk is still the main nutricion source for baby, while food is the side dish. Before one year old, we just let the babies explore their motor skill to reach, to grab, to sip, to bite, to taste and to swallow food on their interest, no need to be forced.
Baby Led Weaning, quite simply, means letting your child feed themselves from the very start of weaning. According to the most recent research most babies reach for food at around six months. You just hand them the food in a suitably-sized piece and if they like it they eat it and if they don’t they won’t. The distinct advantage of weaning at around six months is that by then, our children are developmentally capable of feeding themselves proper food, in other words – no more mush!
I'm so glad that i knew this BLW method three weeks before Asha's first meal. I'm so relieve that preparing food for Asha is as simple as serve slice veggies and fruits for her :) So bye bye puree, mush, and porridge!
There are so many advantages of BLW methode compare to conventional weaning method, for example :
- Babies capable to feed themselves in early stage
- Train baby's motor skills
- Babies explore various tastes of food in its original form and shape so that it will,
- Reduce chance of picky eater babies
- And it helps momy to serve baby food more easily, just chop chop and serve :D
Wohoooo... Now i can't wait to start Asha's first meal. I'm so excited to see how she will react to veggies and fruits i served in front of her. Will she grab it and put it in her mouth? Or will she grab it and smash it into pieces? Oh, i'm so thrilled! :D
eat would be so much fun and total mess!! XD
I have to be more patience waiting for this. Three more weeks before the meal timeee :D
