Mish Mash of Musings

I often have odd musings that are worth blogging about but find limited time to blog. So here is just mish mash of pointers.

Baby Lead Weaning (BLW) has worked really well over more traditional spoon feeding of purees for us with our son. It was difficult at the start when you wanted to take a short cut with a spoon rather than give him time to explore and learn developing his own autonomy. But is has worked out very well and he eats a wide range of foods. We are very proud of him when other compliment him on what a good eater he is now. It all fits in with latest research and advice on introducing foods to babies. Listen to edition of Naked Scientist podcast covering food. And BBC news online reporting research that Spoon feeding ‘makes babies fatter’. BLW has helped my diet too, when we used the steamer more, and cut out the salt.

Happiness Hypothesis by Jonathan Haidt was a good read and useful; feeding into books and articles reading on child development.

And on a totally different note I have enjoying reading blog articles by Adam Curtis after previously appreciating several of his films.

The daffodil bulbs that we planted last autumn are starting to come up in our garden. The one’s Ulla planted in October in the front are coming on much better than those I planted last December in the back. The green inf front of us could do with some blubs too. I always enjoyed see in the early spring bulbs on Muirhouse Medway when I had a view over it from my previous flat. There are some similar in Pilton Park borders towards the Council housing office. I notice these on way back from North Edinburgh Arts where we attended Family fun day on Saturday. We usually go to CREATE there.
