Elimination Communication and the Baby Led Solids Approach…

How practicing Elimination Communication Supported this Baby Led Solids Approach

– As soon as anything effected the other end, I cut it out, this meant I wanted to keep it all soft out the other end so that he didn’t have to strain – so the baby-led eating managed that, as he would get bored of eating / have had enough after a really short time, and this seemed to correlate to what his system needed. We’d say he ate like a fish – whatever he could eat in 5 minutes, as that is what he seemed to do! As soon as he started playing with it, that was the end of his meal – he’d had enough. Of course, one of the benefits we get with EC is the immediate feedback if something doesn’t agree with their system yet – there will be a pretty quick ‘elimination’ response if his system wasn’t ready for it.

– I’ve noticed that as I tend to give him the same foods for a few days, this helps him adjust – when we are having odd foods and lots of foods, he’ll have more accidents, if similar, better signalling and continence. As his system hs matured, he has eaten more variety. It is interesting to note that certain digestive enzymes are not produced in their systems until around eighteen – twenty four months, and it was around eighteen months that he became fully independent for poos (before then I would hold him over a toilet), and also, what he was eating no longer made much difference to his timing. Basically it became like regular stuff about then. (and goodness I’m glad I don’t have to wipe it off his body.)
