Baby Led Weaning

Baby Led Weaning refers to a method of introducing solids that completely skips purees and allows babies to feed themselves appropriately-sized food. Because breastmilk or formula should be the main source of a baby’s nutrition during their first year of life, it’s ok that babies won’t consume too much food when they first start exploring different flavors and textures. Ultimately¬†allowing babies to self-feed enables them to develop their taste preferences, and better regulate their intake.
