Possum and I are just embarking on our adventure into "real food". We're following the BLW, or Baby Led Weaning approachand it's going real well. (Here's the website if you're interested). It's based on a paper research and written by Gill Rapley, basically you put real food in front of a 6 month old and let them feed themselves and eat what they want. So no purees and no spoon feeding. It's so much FUN! So far we've tried, strawberries, bread, mango, broccoli, baby sweetcorn, yoghurt, asparagus and bread.
