To feed or not to feed?

Introducing Junior to food is an interesting one. You can't wait to do it, but apparently, once you start, it's a total nightmare. There seems to be a growing trend towards Baby Led Weaning (or BLW for those in the know) but personally, I'm all for the spoonfed choice. H will be 17 weeks next Monday and I've already bought the baby rice in preparation. Yes, I know, the recommendation is to wait until six months. But I started eating solid foods at 17 weeks and it hasn't done me any harm. And, fingers crossed, it will encourage him to drop the 10.30pm feed - my latest holy grail. Who knows what will happen when we have our evenings totally back to ourselves - restaurants, theatre trips?? Goodness, the world will be our oyster. But, more likely, we'll go to bed at 10pm and get some sleep. Ah, the glamourous life of new parents.

I, on the other hand, will not be eating at all for the next week. This is mainly due to the new pair of shoes I've just bought - simply too good to miss in the sales. A fantastic pair of Georgina Goodman heels reduced from £302 to just £75. Bargain. Plus, the lack of food will help me slim down for those skinny jeans. I hope.
