My little girl was a great eater, we did Baby Led Weaning and she would eat anything…until about 12 months. Somewhere around there she started getting picky. Meat especially became a total no go. Didn’t matter what type of meat it was, she was not going to eat it. From being in multiple mom groups I’ve learned that this is a common occurrence. But it still doesn’t make mealtime any easier! Or make me worry less about whether she’s getting proper nutrition.
So hopefully by now you know the basics of baby led weaning. You’ve checked off all the signs of readiness, you know the do’s and don’t’s. Now, what do you feed them? And how do you prepare it? Choosing that first food can be so exciting! I’m pretty sure the first thing my daughter had was a string cheese…at least it’s the oldest photo I can find on my phone and as a first-time parent I pretty much-documented everything!

Baby Led Weaning in itself is a bit of a misnomer. It was nothing to do with weaning in the way we normally think of it.
