Winnie Led Weaning

Parenting is such a blast.  Though I’m still absolutely in love with nursing, creating a safe space for Winnie to explore her first foods has been a thrill.  She’s been snatching green leafy veggies off my plate for weeks, so we decided to start letting her sit in on mealtimes, plucking out the baby-friendly bits of our own meals and letting Win go to town smushing and grabbing and gnawing to her heart’s content.  Here’s a list of what Winnie has tried so far— a list we hope to grow grow grow!

  • Broccoli rabe
  • Pulled pork
  • Roast chicken
  • Pierogies
  • Potato pancakes
  • Roasted red peppers
  • SO MANY PICKLES (half sours, duh)
  • Comté
  • Landaff
  • Pears
  • Salad greens
  • Green beans
  • Banana
  • Naan
  • Beets
  • Apple
  • Spaghetti squash
  • Vermont Creamery Chèvre

(PS: We chose this route in consultation with Winnie’s pediatrician and with the help of this book.  We know it’s not for everyone, but boy are we having fun!)
