Oh yes and the adorable kitty pants were from the same pattern, just with a drawstring made of a strip of jersey:.
That worked great for this little navy striped pair, which are made of rib knit:. But then when Tashina was cutting out another pair here at the studio, she accidentally put the fold down the center of the pant instead of along the leg, and it was just as cute.
So we tweaked the shape a little, added a cuff, and we had a new pattern! If you add a cuff they might even fit months? Do not repost or distribute. Cut out two main pant pieces using the free pattern template, link above. Hey, if you used an old t-shirt for your fabric, you could use the bottom of the t-shirt for the hems of the leggings!! The stretchiest direction of your fabric should run perpendicular to the fold. Place the two main pieces with their right sides together.
Use a ballpoint or stretch needle on your machine. If you want cuffs, skip to the next step and add the cuffs later see handy infographic, below. Read this post on hemming knits for some tips if you like. Fold the piece of ribbon in half and stuff the ends into the opening in the waistband for a tag to mark the back.
This is if you want your mate to put them on the right way, EVER. Now stitch that shut. Cut out two cuff pieces with the stretchiest direction of the fabric running the length of the cuffs. Fold them in half with the wrong side of the fabric facing out and the short ends together.
Fold each cuff in half so that it is double-layered and the right side is on the outside. Place each cuff over the end of each leg legging should be right side out so that the ends of the leg are even with the two raw cuff edges. Flip the cuffs downward so that the seam is inside. Keeping foods bland and avoiding food that can cause indigestion and gas. And since many reflux babies are also constipated bananas are right out too, at least for us. And since many raw foods are more irritating to a reflux-y tummy I am sure steam or microwave anything but the mildest of foods.
In my experience with this sort of feeding my 5yr old was the same it is actually better for reflux babies since if a food makes their tummy upset, the just wont eat it. My advice would be not to push it, wait till baby is showing signs that they are ready to start eating they will be just fine on breast milk or formula till they are ready and just make sure you are still careful what you give.
If you are not concerned about dairy, it is a good time to introduce yogurt since it has probiotics that aid digestion. We have allergies in the family so I have just started adding probiotics to his food.
I have personally just looked up advice for eating with chronic reflux for adults and adapted that as I could. And no one knows your baby as good as you! Just listen to the dear boys body and it will be fine! Hi, Im very interested in BLW for my first child. So im wondering what would be a few good foods to start with that I know she can manage with no teeth..?
So happy to find this site! For 2 who is now 6. Thanks for the site and info. This information is really useful, I have been EBF my 5. I must admit I am very nervous, but excited at the same time….
Is there any one else on here who has BLW twins? She did this once when I gave her calpol too a while ago, and she just projectiles all her stomach contents up. Is this normal, what should I do? I have just had my LO on my lap, she reached out for a bit of toast I was eating so let her have the crust.
She got a little bit in the front of her mouth and was chewing, she then was sick again, heaved twice and her stomach contents up. She is 6 months tomorrow but not sitting up on her own, is she just too young? I would probably just leave it for a week or two and then try again. She is still little, she has loads of time to get the hang of it: Love this — I had never heard of BLW before, I have now brought this up with my ante-natal group all 4 months post natal and hopefully a few of us will have a go at this.
Sounds so much more natural than mushing up food… Really good website, nice one: Hi I just started BLW and it seems to be going well. I have tried pears, peaches, bread, cucumber,banana,and chicken breast….. Not all at one sitting though. I understand that this approach is more relaxed. I started with fruit. Should I include all the food groups each time? How does it work.? Am I crazy for feeling this way? All babies have the gag reflex, all adults have it to, its just much further back for adults.
A babies gag reflex is very far forward in the middle of their tongue. When you see a BLW baby gag look at where the food is. This is still not choking. Honestly we gagged and vomitted at most meals in the beginning but the more opportunities she was given to explore food the better she became at it. Practice is key to its success I think.
My baby isnearly 6 months old, can sit in a highchair with a bit of extra support and is fascinated by our food. He was 1 month prem so hv said ideally should wait til 7 months to start weaning. Has anyone tried blw non mush before 6 months? He can drink from a sippy cup and has 2 teeth with another coming. We started around 5. I started then with non-mushed veg and fruit. Broccolli and Carrots are great first foods!
If your baby still needs support to sit up straight then it may be that they are not quite ready. Its important they can sit up straight to deal with the food in their mouth. What helped Sofia sit confidently was having her sit on my lap at mealtimes which encouraged her to sit without support. He is a very lively little one who is just SO keen to explore the world. He has two razor sharp teeth that are part-way up. He is on the lean side 5th percentile for weight but has been since he was born, so I try not to stress.
Also a few people have mentioned a cup noiby? I think you mean a doidy cup, made by biccipeg. Am sure you can get them on Amazon. The top is slanted so the baby can see the water coming towards them. Soon enough your little one will be eating plenty. The exciting thing is that number three is 6 months tomorrow so we get to do it again: What makes you think your daughter is interested in food? Is it just curiosity in general?
At that age babies are generally satisfied by being involved with spoons and plates to mess with. In fact, weaning before 17 weeks has been shown to significantly increase allergic reactions and gut problems, so be wary….
Actually rule about starting at 6 months is now on the way to being considered out of date. She said that there is no evidence to say that withholding allergens until after 6 months reduces allergy in fact they believe it may in fact be increasing the incidence of allergies.
She did not give a best age to start solids but she believed in getting babies accustomed to whatever the family will be eating. Personally I would think that if babies are able to put food in their mouths and show an interest in doing so it is probably nature telling us they are ready. There is not much comment here about experience introducing food between 4 and 6 months.
It just depends on the baby, Isla. Some start a bit earlier, some a bit later, just as with walking and other developmental milestones. Perhaps you can help. See, I remember BLW as being: There was only one mantra: LY different food and it took me a while to get my head round that, because i was offering dd2 things that had been a hit with her sister and forgetting to give the misses a try as well.
And yes, I am totally making that same mistake i. I could go on for decades. Also kids on this diet sleep through the night much fater and are overall happier and healthier. Get the crap out, eat REAL food! Yes bread is processed! We have been practicing BLW for a month months of age.
I loved the idea when I heard about it from another mom and read several books beforehand to prepare. In hindsight,I doubt she was choking in any of these instances, but I definitely turned her upside down and hit her back hard in two of the three instances.
One time she even vomited. She never stopped breathing or changed color. Probably in all of these circumstances, she could have worked it out on her own. It would be helpful to discern if what I experienced was normal.
I am aware that my response to what happened was not necessary, so examples of how others handle similar situations would be immensely helpful! I am terrified now!!!! Today, I cut up the food that I have previously been giving to her as a handle and I preloaded it on a spoon. How do I get back on the right track after being scared? Thank you so much for your time. For me reading the book etc gave me the confidence to let her get on with it.
I never once needed to intervene. If your baby is coughing and spluttering to get the food out then they are dealing with it. Honestly I think turning her upside down could make things worse and make her more scared. However in the meantime If she gags again then my advice would be to stay calm, and watch and see if she deals with it because 9 times out of 10 she will. Only if you can see she is in difficulty then I would be trying to help.
When you see your baby gag look at where the food is. To give you a description of gagging, my little boy will normally open his mouth, lean forward and stick his tongue out, whilst making a gagging type noise. Do you eat at the same time as your daughter? I try to share mealtimes and make the mealtime a sociable time rather than sitting and watching the baby eat. Often the food then just gets spat out, I give him a drink of water, say good boy and let him carry on. Perhaps you just need to go back a couple of steps until you get your confidence back.
Good luck with it, hope you can get some useful advice on here. When Fraser first started weaning he gagged a lot. He would cough and sometimes be sick well, a bit of food would come back. Although I can be a bit of a panicker by nature for some reason I trusted the profess and my experience was by staying calm and giving Fraser the opportunity to sort it out himself, he was fine. He would start eating again straight away. The only time I thought hr might be choking was a few weeks back aged 14 months when there was a moment with a satsuma segment when he looked the same as normal gagging but with no noise.
I slapped him on the back and thd satsuma flew out. I have a 10 second rule. I sit on my hands for 10 seconds before doing anything. We have had a few incidents but he is now 9 months and its way better than before.
Try eating at the table with her in her high chair and chatting to her as you eat. Make it a social occasion to take away your fears and distract her from feeling afraid. My husband and I are both infant CPR certified, and we always share mealtimes. I eat breakfast and lunch with her and we all eat dinner together. I am sure that even the proper choking procedure scared her as she was not really choking!
In only once incident did a rather large piece of pear come up with quite a lot of vomit…In hindsight, I think she vomited because I tried to remove the pear, but probably pushed it further back. Even when gagging, my daughter is very quite-she makes no gagging type noises, which increases my anxiety.
I am making progress though-last night she slurped down a rather large hunk of cooked bell pepper from our stew. We handed her a piece large enough to fist with some extending to chew, but she bit the thing off! Personally, I kept eating and looking at my dish.
I did not want to look at her with panic on my face. My husband was saying things like stay calm and in your chair, she is not making noises but is still breathing…It was funny when she finally swallowed it.
I think that had I not exactly what happened last night would have happened, or instead of swallowing she might have worked the food out of her mouth. I like the 10 second rule!!!!!
I hope that with continued experience and practice we will all get better. Again, thank you for your help. Jelly was a fun experience, oh how funny to watch Miss 10months trying to pick up jelly with her new found pincer grip.
Which has developed so quickly due to BLW!! Well that is of course a huge point, but i would ask how you think that conventional weaning using puree for a while then letting them self-feed protects them from choking? I also sterilise all of her feeding equipment plates, bowls, spoons — you name it! My Katie Siobhan is just about to turn 7 months on the 18th of Dec.
Before reading about BLW I was doing the pureed baby food thing! I went to a friends home on Thanksgiving day and my Katie gleefully reached for my plate… first time ever! She happily ate spoon fed bits of mashed sweet potato casserole and fresh cranberry sauce. The next evening her bottom was bright red… I think the cranberry changed the PH in her urine and caused a reaction. Will hold off on cranberries for a bit! As she is not sitting unassisted yet, she has to be held up in a high chair with padding around her.
Thanks so much for the wonderful info. BTW I found your site from a poster on Babycenter. Forgive me if some one has already said this but I dont have time to read all the comments. I like this approach however I would introduce new foods 1 at a time for allergies anc such.
Also grains and dairy are much harder to digest and should be introduced LAST. Dairy months and grains 12 months. I personally will NOT feed my baby grains except perhaps rice until 12 months because my oldest and I have issues with gluten.
The spaghetti suggestion made me cringe. This is an excellent article concerning feeding nourishing foods to growing babies. However current advice in this country has it that gluten is fine for children over six months.
What a fabulous resource this is! With my first, i almost changed my name by depoll to Anabel Karmel, so strictly did i follow her instructions.
And it drove me mad and intact, having to go back to work at 6. I was aware of BLW, but my mother aka the harbinger of doom put me off it. I did wait, til a week before she was 6 mths old…and am now 3 weeks in.
And by gad, am amazed. However, got a bit carried away yesterday and gave her scrambled eggs, which she loved, but came up with a rash around her mouth. Anyway, just wondered what peoples thoughts are on what to do now. Or just back off? Had a mooch about and chat with the imminently sensible gals and guys on the forum. Meanwhile, pitta and houmous a HUGE hit today…brilliant.
My mother will have her wagging finger out at xmas if i turn up with a baby who only eats meat and potatoes. Am not one to cook different meals for different peeps…. It feels like a brik is falling from my shoulder i am sorry if my english is not as suppose too, i am dutch. The story is that i am trying my hardest to wean my youngest daughter who is now 9 months old.. My oldest was never a problem ate the plate with the food if she could.. My son has a major allergy to egg so i can understand th allergy thing people r worried about, but in my house there is no egg related food at all, we all eat the same food.
Her kids were weaned in the 70s, so all kinds of ages, the oldest being three months, so by six months we were all self-feeding anyway. We have been doing well with fruit, we have had our first gag up with banana and guava and oddly enough this has mad me feel more confident to try more stuff when I get home lol: Ok so we have tried most stuff fruit, veg, meat, fish and eggs — no issues so far!
How about cows milk? I apologise if this has been covered elsewhere also, is there a problem if I give him proper food and the odd puréed slop as its already been bought for me by someone else?
I give my LO shredded wheat but just use enough milk to soften it. Is she maintaining a line on the growth charts? Is there anything appearing in the nappies? Have you tried going back to any favourite foods? It did seem to make him more interested in the solids! My son is 5 months old tomorrow.
When I was drinking water out of a glass 2 days ago, he reached up. I put the glass to his mouth and tipped it a little and to my amazement he drank no problems.
Also in the last 2 days he can now sit up un-aided, but after some time he leans right forward and needs propping up or lying down if he has had enough. So my question is! Can I start my son on some breakfast with us in the mornings when he is 5. If so, what would you suggest I gave him to start with? Maybe I am just not imaginitive enough! I am just concerned about toast scratching his gums.
He has been teething since 3 months. Also, what bread should I buy? Just a banana itself would be fine, let him mush it with his gums. I just buy normal wholemeal bread, have tried seeded batch which resulted in interesting nappies!
I waited until 6 months but my LO was sitting early so I did let him gnaw on the odd bit of steamed carrot, pear or banana. Started in earnest at 6 months though. Well this morning he didnt take much notice! So I am going to try hold out until 6 months anyways. I can get anything for him. Thing is I live in Dubai so a lot of our stuff is brought in from overseas! I guess we get some stuff local! This might sound a bit daft. Just didnt think of carrots as a breakfast food?
I just read why you dont give bread before 6 months, so that helped! I hope I get the hang of this! I just feel so nervous! Will get a high chair soon, so he gets used to it I guess? Have you tried sitting him at the table with a spoon and bowl or an empty cup to have a good bash? Yes defo gonna try that! I never bothered about breakfast foods, really. Feel no obligation to let them load the spoon as well, though, that way madness and splattered curtains lie.
I have found it really helpful while weaning my daughter. Lara, I thought you might find it useful to hear my experience. I think what has worked really well for my daughter though is because she is predominantly baby-led she knows when she has had enough and communicates that to me. When I do feed her with a spoon I spend my time doing so and ensure I pick up her signals as to when she is full.
I also ensure she always has her own spoon, otherwise she gets very frustrated and is constantly trying to grab mine! Interestingly this week I went for lunch with some other new mum friends of mine who are weaning their babies with purees and they were all really impressed with how well my daughter is eating and feeding herself she had a spinach and cheese muffin, some melon and salad.
We all had great fun waching their faces. On the waiting a few days between introduction of new foods rule, in NZ I have been advised to wait days between new foods on the basis that it allows you to pinpoint the cause of any reaction and conversely to introduce as many foods as you wish early on on the basis that it allegedly reduces fussiness later on.
We started on purees but the battle of the spoon soon made meal times frustrating, for both of us. We tried BLW and our little girl embraced it with great enthusiasm! Now that she is feeding herself she is much happier at meal times. Feeding herself means she will try anything — lettuce, chard, beetroot, meat, fish, anything really.
She is an eating machine! It makes so much sense and it works. I just gave her some prunes and she was good to go. We started a bit early as she was sitting up and grabbing at our food. How do you say no to a little one who is so interested. She has masted this talent and we are so happy with her progress. Hiya — i have just found out about the blw concept through mothering. This has been fine — he eats a variety of food with this method but does go up and down with his interest and i feel like sometimes hes not really that into it but just eating because im giving it to him, which is why i would really like to start the baby lead method — im just worried that because he has been eating quite a bit of solid food that he might loose this nutrition although he is still breastfeeding A LOT.
He mostly just plays with the food if i let him do it himself so doesnt really get much down. Im sure it will improve with time but just wanted to know your throughts on how to approach this initially?? I find with some of the finger food e. He wakes up several times a night seemingly wriggling around and sometimes results in bottom wind. I would have thought that fruit and veg is probably easier on their gut than grains and cereals though.
You can still be baby-led in theory! Let him handle spoons and have a go at feeding himself, and try again with a wider variety of foods in a week or so to see how he fares. He loves feeding himself with sticks of various items, but he really struggles then digesting it, in fact banana seems to make him really constipated.
I gave up on them and reintroduced them when he was over a year old and doing proper stinky solid poos. He is now a few months off 5 and eats one or to a day with no issues. Both of mine took time to settle with the transition from a milk only diet to one involving solids. I recommend moving his last meal forward a bit so he has digested most of it and got rid of the wind before he goes to sleep.
And remember you have no reason to be on 3 meals a day at 6. Hope the sleeping thing gets better for you, lack of sleep is the worst part for me. I would just like to apologise for the random apostrophe that seems to have crept into the bananas!!! My 6 month old became quite gassy at the introduction of foods and sounds just like yours! Thing is, I started with the cereals. Then I added some purees and he became gassy. Went back to just brown rice cereal with breastmilk and he was worse than ever!
Just pears, apples, carrots, and squash he reacted to sweet potatoes — diarrhea, rash, vomiting. I plan to cook up some pieces to allow him to play and self-feed in addition to the purees. He loves the pears and carrots — they seem to be treating his tummy better than the cereals. Every baby is different, but in our case we found simple purees worked better on our sensitive baby.
We used Happy Bellies brown rice cereal and oatmeal, by the way. The rice cereal is completely dairy and gluten free. Great stuff, but even better maybe would be to just let the babies self-feed altogether, and see if he expresses a preference himself? Have a look on youtube so you can see the difference between choking and gagging — choking is scary, where the baby stops moving, goes red or blue, stares and you end up having to turn them upside-down and whack them on the back to dislodge whatever is stuck in their throat and start them breathing again.
Choking is very rare. Much like if you stuck your fingers down your throat! It took around 3 weeks for the gag reflex to disappear for us, although it still happened from time to time usually somewhere super-inappropriate, like a smart restaurant! My son is 6 months and 1 week. When he was months old, he slept through a handful of times and was down to only waking once when EBF. Now he wakes up several times a night and is co-sleeping so I can get some kip!
He did manage to swallow some broccoli I saw it in the spit up , but he has a solid tongue-thrust reflex still bit off a bit of banana last night and it came straight back out since it was a thumbnail-sized chunk. Hi there, I am new here. I am starting my son on BLW as he is 6months. Anyone else have this problem? Is he simply not ready? I appreciate that a lot of the fun for the kids is feeling squidgy things but some children are naturally more fastidious and take longer to get to grips with the mess.
Remember, until last week he had only ever had milk, maybe he reckons the toast is a big enough change for now? Well I have started! We have had cucumber, carrots gagged loads with them , banana and brocolli. Loved it all and he is feeding himself organic whole grain baby cereal last two mornings, well if he swallows much. Someone mentioned a 6 month growth spurt? My little one was sleeping 8: Last 8 nights he has fidgeted none stop and waking up 3 times between 8: I am exhausted, and every time he is just hungry.
He seems to have his bottle, nappy change and be burped all in his sleep. I just cannot seem to get any sleep! The thing is he is having formula, 2. He sometimes leaves some, so isnt hungry! And my son was 9. Just ride it out? So can food help with this? I reckon maybe a more convenient for you, i mean dream feed might help with the sleeping, though. My DD used to do this and sometimes we had to tweak her routine a little bit to accommodate changes.
Thank you so much for all this info. I am excited to start this method at 6 months. Hopefully it will work. Now, onto the research! My baby is 6 months old and we started introducing purees at 4 months. I am interested in starting baby led weaning but wanted to know if there is any harm in offering her purees twice a day while at daycare and pieces of food at dinner. I actually came across the concept of BLW when I was telling my sister in law that my daughter was interested in a banana I was eating so I let her have it and she bite off and chewed a few pieces with her single bottom tooth.
My only concern with doing both is will she be more likely to choke if she is learning to swallow food without chewing during two feedings, but then needs to know to chew when offered pieces of food at dinner? Hi, I started to wean my baby about 3 weeks ago, using puree, but have been giving her bits of toast etc i didnt realise that was blw!!!
We are starting BLW today, so I plan to give him his new food at lunch, but today is Saturday, so that is convenient. During the week, he has various grandparents watching him, so I would prefer to introduce new foods at dinner, which would be close to when he goes down 6: Do I really have to let the grandparents have all the fun of introducing new foods during the daytime?
I am in desperate need for some advice. I read BLW book and think it is wonderful. However, my son is already almost 13 months old and he is not taking to solids.
My mother-in-law was taking care of him until now and spoon-feeding him pureed food, but she literally had to sing and dance to trick him into eating. Mealtimes were always a struggle. Now that she is finally gone home I am trying to teach him to eat solids BLW way, but he is having hard time eating anything but some commercially made cheese puffs and crackers.
He refuses to be spoon fed anymore, and he refuses to eat our food. I eat all my meals right in front of him, and sometimes he takes some of my food, but he would chew it and spit it out.
But mostly he acts disinterested no matter how much variety we offer him. He still drinks formula so he is not loosing weight, but I am very concerned — he cannot keep eating formula till he is 18 years old!
Please help with some advice for parents who started BLW with toddlers and who are having difficult time. Thank you so much in advance! Hi Itala, the thing about BLW is that really, it starts when weaning starts, so round about 6 months, so that opportunity has passed I think. I doubt you would have done the singing and dancing and tricking, left to your own devices.
D And remember, short of force-feeding him there is Absolutely Nothing you can do about his reluctance. I know some babies love a picnic on the floor, or in the park, or even in their buggy, because they really dislike being observed. I think mine waited until 8 months before refusing food, so your little girl is very advanced. Another trick I used is to eat exactly what he was eating and show it to him.
Eating on the floor always helps too! Now that it is summer, try picnicing in the garden on in the park — they seem to try things they never tried before when they think they are picking something from the ground! Also I think when she starts nursery she will see example of other children eating and will progress much quicker. Also a type of cup matters, I tried a lot of them, and the one he loves is Tommy Tippee essentials, so yours might prefer a certain type of cup too!
Thank you so much for your reply. Relaxing about it and just letting things proceed naturally is what I need! Thank you so much! And thank you for the idea to try him eating unobserved. I will try to have fruit left for him to find in small plates in his play area and see what happens!
I feel so much better! Thanks for your advice. However, now that I have started puree feeding I am starting to see the merits of the BLW approach and today my son enjoyed tucking into a banana me not so much when he gagged a couple of times but at least I know he can clear his throat ok.
This is what bought me to this website and it has been most helpful and very common sense in my opinion. Children learn everything through play. I gave up after about a month and a half of trying to get her to eat purees. She gagged on every mouthful and spat it out and I found the whole thing completely stressful! I gave up on the purees and just put some food like steamed brocolli, carrots or pear on her table.
She played with the food and ate little until she was about 12 months. She pretty much only had breast milk until 12 months.
