Helping your baby to love good food
Baby-led Weaning explodes the myth that babies need 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.
Baby-led Weaning is a common sense, easy and enjoyable approach to feeding your child, and it:
- Helps to develop your baby's natural abilities, including hand-eye coordination and chewing
- Allows your baby to join in with family meals right from the start of the weaning process
- Encourages independence by allowing your baby to experiment with foods at his own pace
- Makes mealtimes more enjoyable and battles less likely
Baby-led Weaning is a practical and authoritative guide to introducing solid food, enabling your child to grow up a happy and confident eater.
