I loved porridge

I love baby led weaning, she loves baby led weaning but (and it’s a small but) a big part of my day is cleaning up after eating. Letting her learn and make mistakes means there’s a lot to clear up, the chair, floor, her and me. I often think it’s helping me to let her make her own mistakes and to develop and she’s definitely not being spoon fed!

I’m so glad you love porridge, I used too, Now it’s your clay mask, not sure I still do. Click To Tweet

Though I love how your eating makes me smile,
Getting it just in your mouth takes a while.

This was after I told her she’s going to have to have a bath.


At the end of the day it’s all cleanable and she eats so well and can feed herself, so I’m a happy messy mum.

  1. Haha, she looks like she is enjoying that porridge! It does resemble a clay mask! 🙂 #FridayFrolics

    • Thanks. Maybe that’s why baby skin is so good.

  2. It’s just cleaning it before it turns to cement! Love those curls. Thanks for linking up to #FridayFrolics

  3. hahaha she looks slightly unimpressed with the results of her actions!
    Thanks for linking to #ablogginggoodtime Don’t forget to join us again next week!

    • Yeah, the news of an extra bath didn’t go down well.

  4. Haha – I couldn’t bring myself to fully embrace baby led weaning! I could not cope with the mess! Fine with finger foods, but things like porridge I had to do myself with a spoon – I just couldn’t do it!

    Thanks so much for joining us for #FridayFrolics

    • It’s a total letting go of control for me. I feel afterwards it looks like Tracy Emin’s next piece.

  5. I love these photos! Nice to see she’s getting fully immersed in her food!

  6. Haha! Oh – Wow! Look at that mess! I love you for being so honest! #DreamTeam

    • Aww thanks. Yes that mess… I have no words for the clean up.

  7. I absolutely love this post. My little girl is the exact same. I also feel like I do nothing but clean up all the food mess too x

    • Thanks. Oh yes the clean up. After she started solids there are 3 changes a day and that’s just for her!

      • definitely! I lose count how many times the high chair and floor get cleaned and clothes changes! ahh the washing up! haha good job we love our babes so much xx

  8. Ah such a fun post! I have to say, although messy, Baby Lighty really took well to Baby Led Weaning. He eats really well now and I love the fact that I can have dinner at the same time and not have to sit and spoon feed him!! Thanks so much for linking this up with #DreamTeam!

    • Glad you can relax at dinner and it all falls in to place. I’ve seen my niece and nephew go through it and I know it’s worth it, even though the seemingly invited explosion every meal time is a lot to clean up.

  9. such a beautiful girl, she looks cute with messy face and hair. looks like she is enjoying thoroughly this look. 🙂 Manisha
