We started on our baby’s first food when Arissa turned 6 months old. Her first solid food was a puree. The first thing I did was google and download some baby recipe application on my mobile. Then I asked some mommy friends to get some ideas. Finally, I bought 2 avocados and blend them into puree for my baby girl. Her verdict: SHE LOVES IT!
So, some say baby first foods should be puree but some say BLW is the way to go. What is BLW? It stands for Baby-Led Weaning which is a method of adding complementary foods to a baby’s diet of breastmilk or formula. It is a method of food progression and BLW facilitates the development of age appropriate oral motor control while maintaining eating as a positive, interactive experience. Basically the same type of food but without blending it.
So the big question mark is which did I follow? Puree or BLW?
