One year update over and out:( For now....

Well the time has come to go back to work... I am at the very least ambivilent at the moment. Not dreading it as I am needing a change but not looking forward to the long hours and missing all my family. However, I feel that I have had a wonderful year, I hope that David Cameron does not do a u turn on Maternity Benefits as I feel that having the space of a year has made all the difference to me being a much more laid back parent.

I am eternally grateful for discovering blw and all the support and answers I found on the forum, if you are reading this and are a newbie too I cannot recommend highly enough the community there to make you feel you are not alone..   http://www.babyledweaning.com/

The film is a homage to my wonderful daughter who eats! If you have never had a child that doesn't eat you will never understand the uindiluted joy we feel when Tabs dives in to her meals with gusto, it's such a joy!

Enjoy the movie and I will update this blog at important stages so it's there for people to see how the journey carries on.

looks like I've just missed you.... which is a shame as we've just moved to the Borders so i was delighted to find there are other bloggers around.... if you get this comment, come over and say hello. If not, I really hope being back at work is going well, and will look forward to updates as and when you post them.

Been trying baby led weaning for about a month now and although my nearly 7 month old will pick food up he really doesn't seem that interested in eating yet - the odd thing goes in but he's bored and ready to leave the high chair within minutes - any tips to encourage him or will it just change over time? He's breast fed. Thanks

Patience is the best thing. try not to get stressed as thats the worst thing you can do. I loved it white tabs carried on breastfeeding and just played with food. Just carry on offering and one day you'll realise that they the shift has been made from breast to food...keep the faith x x
