Baby Led Weaning

My friend Rhiannon linked a wonderful article on her Facebook about BLW. This is the route we plan to go with Cecilia, and we plan to wait until at least 6 months to start, if not later.

Baby Led Weaning: An Alternative Approach to Starting Solids


  1. BLW really is the easiest way to do solids because you don't have to fight with the baby about eating. Too many people start solids too soon and then feel like bad moms because it doesn't work well for them. Every baby is ready at a different time and by waiting until they are ready to mostly feed themselves at family meal times it makes everything happier and more relaxed.

  2. YES! we did blw and loved it. We didn't really start solids until close to 12 months and the first time she had a fork in her hand, she speared a piece of watermelon and popped it right in her mouth and ate the whole bite like a pro! :) I'd do it again in a heartbeat!
