The Natural, No-Fuss, No-Purée Method for Starting Your Baby on Solid Foods
Baby-Led Weaning explodes the myth that babies want to be spoon-fed and shows why self-feeding from the start of the weaning process is the healthiest way for your child to develop. With baby-led weaning (BLW, for short), you’ll be able to skip purées and make the transition to solid food by following your baby’s cues.
At about six months, most babies are able to enroll in the circle of relatives at the kitchen table and discover food for themselves. Baby-Led Weaning is the definitive guide to this a very powerful period in your child’s development, and shows you how to lend a hand your baby:
- Participate in circle of relatives meals right from the start
- Experiment with food at his or her own pace
- Develop new abilities, including hand-eye coordination and chewing
- Learn to love quite a lot of foods and to enjoy mealtimes
