Lyra had her 4 month check up! She weighs 13.7lbs and is 2ft tall! She’s in the 30th percentile for her age. Lyra is unstoppable. Her perseverance astounds me daily. She can roll from her back to her belly, trying her hardest to crawl, and is very close to sitting up on her own. Our pediatrician started talking to us about introducing cereals and purees but also mentioned it’s okay to choose our own path. I have officially decided to use baby-led weaning method.
How you introduce food to your child is a very important decision. I have been researching baby-led weaning since before my daughter was born. My biggest concern (of course) is choking. My personal reasons to try BLW:
1. Baby feeds themselves so they are able to recognize when they are full.
2. Baby may end up liking unlikely foods creating a healthy diet throughout childhood.
I stumbled across this wonderful blog post . It’s exactly what I’ve been looking for!
We will be starting Lyra on food once she is 6 months old. It’s going to be a messy process but I think it’ll pay off in the end. This girl is far too eager to take on the world!
