While I am a third time mum, I don’t claim to be an expert on the subject of parenting, like many I am simply going with the flow and hoping for the best..
My first kitten Kai was easy to wean, he was excited to try many new things and he was given baby rice and mushed fruit at 4 months old as he was ready for it.. he’s now a healthy demonic 6 year old and loves his food, as does my second kitten Amelia who I waited till the recommended 6 months to wean her, she now loves food so much that’s all she can think about hah… she’s a soon to be 5 year old..
But with my youngest kitten, Robin.. who is now 6 months old, isn’t interested in food at all… she’s more interested in my phone than a spoon.. I would try baby lead weaning but I have a fear that she may choke on her food.. so at 5 months I tried her on a little, she still had her tongue reflex to prevent my worry from happening… so I waited, a week before she turns 6 months I tried her again, she seemed more interested but still isn’t keen..
I understand all babies are different yadda yadda yadda … but it’s worrying me..
I know it shouldn’t but eh, it’s going to.. and I’m wondering if I should entertain BLW to see if she’d rather feed herself rather than spoon fed.. when I attempt to spoon feed her she sticks her tongue to prevent me from getting anything in, not the reflex but deliberately forcing her tongue out of her mouth whenever I get even close with a spoon.
So my question is… should I wait a bit longer and try her again?… or preserve and keep trying?
Personally I think I should wait and try again next week..
This parenting thing is tough hah!
