It’s September… so it’s officially pumpkin season! I mean ok, it’s 95 degrees here, but let’s pretend it feels like Fall, ok?
Because I look forward to pumpkin recipes so much, I wanted to be able to make my baby a pumpkin recipe – perfect for those chubby little fingers of hers! So many of you loved my baby led weaning cookies and baby led weaning muffins so I figured it was time to share the baby pancakes Enceladus is currently loving – Pumpkin Pancakes!
So what is baby led weaning?
A short answer to a possible very long answer is that baby led weaning (or BLW as the Moms on the playground call it!) encourages your baby to feed themselves instead of eating purees from a spoon. We started Enceladus very early with baby led weaning, and there were some learning curves in the beginning (totally normal) but I really feel that feeding herself has not only made her more independent, but also more open to tasting EVERYTHING.
Seriously, there’s no food she won’t try. Put a food in front of her and watch her eat it!
Plus now she loves cooking with Mama in the kitchen…. even though it gets dangerous sometimes!
