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 Loved Porridge

I’m so glad you love porridge, I used too,
Now it’s your clay mask, not sure I still do.
Though I love how your eating makes me smile,
Getting it just in your mouth takes a while.

Mama Grace
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 – 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


  2. 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!


    1. 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.
