I want your teacake.
Not content with fruit and veg, Millie tried to swipe a teacake today. Her appetite remains strong and she is once again eating everything she can get her hands on. I made a mistake earlier. We had a late lunch and so rather than being just before Millie's nap it was just after. She came to sit with us at the table and ate her way through a pile of veg. When it was time for her milk shortly afterwards she didn't want any. I remember being told to always give the milk first as this is where the majority of calories come from. I live and learn.
As she is now over six months I will be gradually introducing some grain based foods. A lot is written about allergies and often advice conflicts so I won't be adding my (unqualified) opinion to the clamour. What I will do when relavent is tell you what we are avoiding and what led us to that choice. More of that in posts to come.
I have been reading a blog called Motherland written by a woman from Winchester living in Cambodia. I think it is really lovely and thought you would like to read it too.
