Llun Dydd Llun – Baby Led Mess!

NW’s first ever breakfast!

Baby porridge self-fed from a loaded spoon.ย  He seemed to get the hang of it pretty quickly!ย  Let the weaning commence – sob!


  1. Gross! I have a similar pic of my eldest when he decided to self-feed with a tomato-based baby food D:

    Someone needs to invent a bib with both sleeves and mittens on the end… a bit like that equipment for handling nuclear material inside a chamber!!

  2. Oh, these weaning photos are hilarious! We do the Baby- Led Weaning method and it is so-o lovely! We use the BabyBjorn long-sleeved apron and I put newspapers on the floor.

  3. Thanks for the link Jo. Plastic sheet is a good idea. Amazing how the dogs have suddenly started taking an interest in the baby! ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. He’s loving it now thanks Rid. Its amazing how quickly they learn how to pick up and handle food when given the chance. This morning he managed a bowl of porridge and a whole Pear!xxxx

  5. Thanks Carolina. Never heard of it, but I’ll check it out. Sounds like it could be the baby version of the Nuclear Waste outfit Moobug suggested! xxxx

  6. Hee hee!
    I love baby led weaning, and so did/do my last two boys who have been lucky enough to start off eating that way. It’s messy, yes, but so good that they can be in control of what they eat. I have to say I haven’t tended to go for porridge from the beginning though – brave you! ๐Ÿ™‚
