The Baby-led weaning (BLW) approach to start babies on solid food has great benefits for our babies and for the family as a whole. It boosts independence, improves dexterity, enhance confidence, builds social skills, promotes self-regulation of appetite and is great FUN!

(BLW should not be started before your baby is 6 months old!)
