I admit I tried that for a couple of days and quickly gave up as realised that I couldn't do it and stay sane, if that's any consolation.

Well I've been doing it for 11 weeks now but I'm not sure I'm exactly a poster-girl for "staying sane"...

The nappy changes sound like a pain. Something fun to look forward to... :-} (Imogen can already roll on to her side, so I'm guessing I don't have long before she starts making nappy changes more interesting!)

the baby led weaning crowd tend to make a big deal about how easy it is compared with traditional weaning, but I'm not convinced

Yeah, I don't really believe them, because they tend to be the same people who say that breastfeeding is easy. On the other hand traditional weaning (assuming you mean the "puree everything into a homogenous gloop, measure it out in clinical doses & attempt to spoon it into a wailing baby" method) sounds difficult too... basically I don't think there's an easy option!

Sounds like you're doing really well though, & I'm amazed at your River Cottage baby cooking -- I rarely have the energy to make that sort of effort with cooking even for people who are unlikely to just throw it all on the floor! :-}

Spending half an hour cooking at the weekend isn't anywhere as impressive as expressing for eleven weeks!

Tho kit is worth trying a little bit of both forms ofvweaning to see which you both prefer.
