Meal Plan Monday – 28th November 2016

Our meal plan this week was prepared while I am hungover and generally feeling a bit tender. I think that may be reflected in my food choices! I am all about the comfort food! Things get a little busy around the weekend so no need to meal plan for JHogg and I, but as usual I have continued to have a plan for Piglet.

Piglet is going through a phase of not wanting to be fed. He insists on feeding himself, which is driving me crazy as he can’t really do it. He ends up being hungry and crying but won’t let me feed him. I have tried to mix things up a bit this week for him to include more items that would be easier for him to pick up and eat himself so we will see if that helps!

    I downloaded an app called baby led weaning cookbook, which looks pretty good. Loads of lovely recipes! My son’s only in early stages of BLW at the moment but I plan to use this app more once he’s into it. I totally regret not doing BLW with my daughter. It takes forever for them to master a spoon (she’s just gone two and can only just feed herself now really). I wish I’d worried less about the mess and just let her eat everything with her fingers. It’s not for the faint hearted though! The mess gets everywhere!

      Thank you – I’ll go and download it now! Piglet had to be weaned at 4 and a half months due to low weight gain on a doctors recommendation, so baby led weaning wasn’t an option at the time. We’re embracing it now though (or trying to – the mess makes me shudder) but I’m finding it harder to vary his food when he’s picking it up himself and he won’t touch certain things. Sneaky little guy!
