15 months old vs. 2 months old
[ And how we got Ava to eat most things, including vegetables! ]
- save this post for reference later -
At exactly 6 months old we started the #BlissMethod (a mix on #BLW and purees).
Later on, since we started more finger food and skipped purees, she has gotten the same as us (modified when needed).
I feel like having her sitting with us at the table and watching us eat the same as her has been the key to our success.
She has always felt part of the table and sits comfortably like the rest of us.
We have a great high chair that has “grown” with Ava as you can see (swipe left). This is the @stokkebaby Steps™ (you can even choose the colors to match our dining room, like we did!).
Other things we think helped us in introducing solids:
- SCHEDULING! For us this has worked like a charm! She eats at the same time everyday.
- I’ve always explained what I was giving her, presented the plate and named everything that was on it.
- We never pushed or forced any food on her.
- Variety! This one is tough ‘cause I know we can run out of ideas for recipes fast, but the internet got you mommas!
Sources I use for #babyrecipes:
- Instagram hashtags (follow and save)
- Facebook groups
- Google images (and then I go to the links, mostly blogs)
BUT we are still working on getting her to stop throwing food on the floor, do YOU guys have any tips on this specific situation? Help!!
PS: Torben developed a little bit of camera shyness in these 13 months, he is still here somewhere! lol
❤️Family first! I am so blessed w/ an incredible connection to my family! Over these past two years I have loved & loss hard, I could’ve went down the wrong path and handle things differently, but the love my family gave me would never allow me to fall that way! It’s unconditional love... something they instill in me to carry forward! They have never left my side, they support me when times are tough & support me through every amazing journey In my life! Find a love that is unconditional like this! I am so happy to be able to cherish these moments and make new memories! FAMILY STRONG ❤️ #family#familybonding#bestfamily#daddysgirls#unconditionallove#wwe
Ich habe geweint,
als ich Dich das erste mal in meinen Armen hielt.
Und ich geweint, als Du mir Dein erstes, richtiges Lachen geschenkt hast.
Als Du mir das erste mal gesagt hast: Mama, ich hab Dich lieb. Auch da habe ich geweint.
Seit Du auf der Welt bist, habe ich so oft vor Freude, Glück & Stolz geweint.
Du bist mein Wunder. Mein wunderschönes, cleveres, kleines Wunder.
Und ich liebe es,
die Welt durch deine Augen zu sehen.
Wenn Du glücklich bist, bin ich es auch!
Wir beide sind ein tolles Team - das beste Team auf der ganzen Welt.
je t'aime mon amour 🖤
