Logan's BLW feeding journey so far ⋆ Mummytologan

Logan’s BLW feeding journey so far

We’ve been weaning Logan now for just over 6 months and it’s been one hell of a blw journey. I just can’t believe how fast he’s growing, I know I say it every single time I make some sort of Logan update but it’s true, being a FTM I didn’t quite know how fast it would go.

Let me start from the beginning of our weaning journey and then I’ll get to where we are at currently a bit later on. Starting from when Logan was around 16 weeks old we noticed that he wasn’t really getting full up from his usual oz bottle, we could have upped the formula but being a first time mum, I didn’t know if it was “allowed” so we made the decision to see how he goes with some plain, organic baby rice. The first time he tried it, he only had a spoonful but once he got used to the taste and texture he soon was wanting more.

I wasn’t really enjoying making my own purees or batch cooking, it’s very time consuming and so I started offering Logan more finger foods and whatever we were having for breakfast, lunch and Tea. I’m just so glad I don’t have to buy these jars anymore, i mean their convenient for days out but they don’t taste very nice in my opinion.

Weaning jars
How expensive are Jars to buy every week!

When he was about 6 months old he started having his favourite banana porridge and soft homemade banana pancakes. My initial weaning plans were to mainly do a combination of purees/jars and blw, but after a while, Logan stopped taking any interest in the purees and jars so we just switched over to solely BLW.

Moving onto present day, Logans now nearly 11 months old and he’s brilliant when it comes to eating, he will eat almost anything that I put in front of him, I’m so glad that he’s not a fussy eater. His favourite meals at the moment are Spaghetti bolognese (will be posting my recipe soon), Pancakes with berries and Toast with cheese spread and sliced tomatoes.

This is Logan’s current BLW feeding schedule:

7 am – 8/9 oz bottle

10 am – Cereal (Porridge/toast or crumpets)

12 pm – Lunch (Sandwich/Fruit or pancakes)

2 pm – 6/6 oz Bottle

5 pm – Tea (Pasta, Fishfingers, veg, anything we’re having)

7 pm– 7/8 oz Bottle

  1. My daughter loves things like spaghetti bolognaise. The messier the better it seems! I’d love to read on a post about what you get up to for playtime during the day. I’m always looking for ideas, especially as I’m now not going back to work!

  2. Logan is such a cutie! Ben still loves his puree’s but we do a combination of that plus BLW as he doesnt always eat alot of the finger food – more just playing around haha.
    Thank you for joining us at #TriumphantTales, I hope to see you again next week! x

  3. If Peachy was born a boy her name would have been Logan. Our shortlist for boys names just had that one name on it. Good to hear that your little one is enjoying his weaning journey. Thanks so much for linking up at #KCACOLS. Hope you come back again next Sunday

  4. Ah how I miss the blw days. It was so much fun. My boy is now such a good eater. I love the spaghetti pic. I took hundreds of weaning pics. We started before 6 months too but just little things for exploring. Milk was not quite filling up my milk monster either

Why not tell me your thoughts?
