A while back I wrote the article “Baby Led Weaning” explaining how we chose to feed Little Miss. I included a video that I put on youtube when she was about 6 1/2 months. Over the past few weeks I’ve had quite a few comments on the video, most are quite positive, (it’s on there to try and educate/help other parents perhaps wanting to do BLW) but quite a few of the comments are negative. Have a read at them if you have time.
Today I had a comment saying that BLW was a good thing if used with common sense, but I clearly like “taking chances” with my daughter – someone managed to conclude that after watching a 58 second video!? WELL DONE. First of all, thanks for the comment/insult – I have no common sense? Secondly, I love taking chances with Little Miss? Yeah, I often take her out with me, run away and hope she finds her way back home again, isn’t that what all parents do?? No? Oh dear…I’ve got this parenting thing all wrong! Next you’ll be telling me I shouldn’t put make-up on my daughter??
It annoys me that people comment on things they have no idea about. Do your research before you open your mouth people!
Anyway, what are your thoughts on baby-led weaning?
