baby vs. veggies

Okay hippie mom friends... I keep wanting to feed Jo big girl food, but seriously I do not understand baby-led weaning at all.

Like, tonight I tried giving her cooked green beans... one at a time, they were nice and soft and about 1" long. She was picking each one up and putting it in her mouth and chewing, then she'd stop and smile and I'd give her another one. This went on for several minutes.

Then suddenly she started gagging and coughed and out comes this PILE of green beans! She hadn't swallowed any, I guess she was just storing them in her cheeks like a hamster or something?

It's moments like that I'm just like okay, we're sticking with jars.
