Baby Led Weaning: 3 Months In 

The difference between how Waylen ate at 6 months versus now is seriously insane! I was amazed at how coordinated he was then but now it’s an entirely different story. He now uses his pincher grapse, he’s SO good at chewing everything, he rarely misses his mouth, and has even started opening his hand to get food out. I used to only know he actually got any food because it would speckle his poop (seriously ha) but now he bites off huge chunks, and chews them right up!
Here’s a list of the foods we’ve tried so far:

  1. Broccoli
  2. Sweet potato
  3. Avocado
  4. Zucchini
  5. Carrots
  6. Greek Yogurt
  7. Eggs
  8. Squash
  9. Spinach
  10. Hummus
  11. Mahi Mahi
  12. Raspberries
  13. Watermelon
  14. Banana
  15. Cauliflower
  16. Peanut butter
  17. Mango
  18. Pears
  19. Cheese (feta, goat, Cheddar, motzerella, provolone)
  20. Tomatoes
  21. Apples
  22. Shallot
  23. Ground beef
  24. Pasta
  25. Bell pepper
  26. Onion
  27. Turkey
  28. Strawberries
  29. Pumpkin
  30. Coconut
  31. Oats
  32. Flaxseed
  33. Kale
  34. White bean
  35. Pineapple
  36. Almond butter
  37. Orange

We are now at the stage where I will offer him some of my meal when we are out to eat. He LOVED everything from the Greek Festival in San Diego. Spanakopita, pastitsio, he scarfed it all down. Clearly he’s a Greek baby! He also regularly eats veggie noodles with homemade sauce, egg muffins, meatballs, snowballs, and protein waffles. We still make his food semi separately from ours because we don’t add any salt to his. ( I’m horrible and add WAY too much salt to mine.) No salt doesn’t mean no seasoning for Waylen’s food though. We roast all his veggies in olive oil and black pepper, season his pasta sauces and hummus with garlic and herbs, and sprinkle cinnamon on his roasted sweet potato fries.

His favorite foods these days are squash (still,) PB banana waffles, egg muffins and sweet potatoes with cinnamon! He will seriously down and entire waffle and two mini egg muffins every morning for breakfast. It’s impressive!

Waylen is still my good little piggy and has yet to come across a food he doesn’t enjoy so let’s hope that continues forever! He eats everything up as soon as I can make it! I would love to hear what you’re feeding your little babes so send me all your BLW recipes!
