Help with Solid Feeding

October 25, 2016

As you all know, I am a total believer in Baby Led Weaning.

With both of my kids we went the route of introducing whole, solid foods, instead of purees and baby foods. It’s definitely a personal choice for each parent, but we’ve just had so much success with solid foods, that I can’t imagine us having done anything different now.


The one thing that can get kind of tricking with BLW, is that there’s certain foods that can get hard to feed the littles, without having to actually sit there and spoon feed. Not that I’m opposed to spoon feeding, but it’s just so much easier when your child can feed themselves, so that you can actually enjoy meal time with them, instead of trying to manage bites in between.

Well, I found something that has been a huge help to us at meal time!

It’s the Boon PULP, which is a super cool teething feeder. Unlike mesh feeders that basically only allow “juices” to make there way through, the Boon PULP really allows for food the be added in, and the little to use their gummy “teeth” to gnaw on the mouth and get out whatever is placed inside.


For use, it’s been a great way for me to give Holly some avocado, yogurt, oatmeal or even sunflower butter, without it going all over the tray, falling off a spoon, and me having to sit there and feed her spoon by spoon.

Holly loves her little PULP feeder. She gets to control how much food she wants from it, and actually, now that she’s teething, it’s a great relief for her gums. The other day to help with her teething pain, I put a little bit of yogurt in, with a blob of pumpkin, and a piece of frozen fig. She sat there so content through all of dinner just gnawing away, and I’m sure the intermittent cold from the frozen fig was such a soother for her little teethies.


That’s what I love about this, is that I can use it for things that she can’t really pick up yet with her fingers, I can add frozen food to it that will thaw as she gnaws, and I can take it with us to help keep messes when we’re out to a minimum. Not to mention this feeder cleans up with just a simple rinse under the sink. High five for easy clean up. To get your own Boon PULP 2 pack, you can head over to Target [the bestest mommy store around]!

Just be careful, if you have a toddler, they’re going to think the baby has a sucker, and they’re gonna want one too!



Holly: 32 Weeks Old

October 23, 2016

Little munchkin had a heck of a week. Of course, the two bottom teeth are slowly making their way up. Thank goodness Holly has the same temperament with teeth that Logan did, kind of calm, still normal, and just intermittent moments of fussiness. My mother in law says that normal it’s waaaaay worse, so I guess […]

Surviving the Day

October 19, 2016

As a mom, things can get crazy pretty quickly. Mommyhood is such a fly by the seat of your pants gig, because you just never know what you’re going to wake up to. I can tell in about the first 30 minutes of the kids being awake what kind of day we’re going to have. […]

Weekending + Fighting Off Colds

October 17, 2016

How is it that the weekends seem to just fly by [but two days in the week don’t go nearly as fast]? With the weather giving us a hotter than normal fall, we’re trying to take full advantage of the warm weather. Seriously, the leaves here aren’t really even changing colors yet, and we’re still wearing shorts […]

Lunchbox Peek

October 16, 2016

If you follow me over on Instagram [Stories], you may have seen me posting Logan’s school packed lunchbox. I am always scouring social media for toddler lunch ideas. I can fall in to the same ole ham sandwich over and over again, and I try to remember that kids like variety too when it comes […]

Holly: 31 Weeks Old

October 13, 2016

Oh my! So we’re in the land of teeth. My little baby’s gummy smile is about to be gone forever. Holly’s first two bottom teeth are cutting their way through. Luckily she’s doing pretty good with them. She has moments of being fussy or cranky, and isn’t really napping a ton. But other than that, […]

Pumpkin Muffins

October 11, 2016

With our fall bucket list tree up on the wall, we’re in full on Fall mode. The weather is finally shifting in New Mexico. The last two days have been cold and dreary. And, when it’s like that outside, there’s nothing better to do than to turn on a movie and turn up the oven. We’re […]

Holly: 30 Weeks Old

October 9, 2016

This was such a hard week for me. It was my first time leaving little Holly girl for the weekend. She stayed home with Lucas and Logan and I headed off to Colorado. I was so sad to leave her, and all those normal worries were happening — is my milk going to tank, is […]

Fall Bucket List Tree

October 4, 2016

This Fall tree has been something I’ve been doing every year now since Logan’s been born. I feel like October has some how become one of our busiest months, and mostly because it’s like the perfect weather in Albuquerque to get out and do everything! It’s also the kick off month to the holidays, so […]
