true tales from the gates of the underworld

Not a puree baby

Ok, so it’s been a few days. Life seems to always catch up with me and leave me with little time to write about the stuff I would like to write about.
Let me tell you about the Weaning workshop we went to on monday.
Two lovely ladies from HALFF prepared some different purees in front of us, and told us all we needed to know about mush-weaning our babies. They seemed somewhat shocked, and a little surprised when they heard that the raptor already eats what we eat almost every night. Don’t get me wrong – it’s all about personal choices, and we have made ours. I just don’t think the two ladies were quite prepared for that. For the duration of the workshop I felt like they constantly had to mention “or if you do BLW” as addendum to almost everything they said. A strange feeling.
At the end, every baby/parent got a plate with different bits of puree, and a spoon. The raptor’s first reaction, of course, was to stick his little hand in the middle of the plate and try to grab the bit of broccoli, along with a load of mush before we had even sat down. That was as far as the fascination went. As soon as a bit of puree passed his lips, he started pulling faces, spitting, gagging and crying. Totally unimpressed. I loaded the spoon with a different puree and let him try again, same result. I assume that he didn’t like the texture or the taste of it.
Mine is definitely not a puree baby.
