Why Baby Led Feeding?
I truly believe babies have a natural instinct to know how to feed themselves – this is what Baby Led Feeding (BLF) is all about! Also referred to as Baby Led Weaning, BLF offers parents and their children an enjoyable, relaxed approach to the introduction of solid foods. By letting babies self-feed at their own pace, parents have the opportunity to see for themselves how their child can regulate his or her own appetite at mealtimes! While this can be accomplished with spoon-feeding if parents are educated and mindful of their baby’s hunger and fullness cues, BLF really lets the baby take lead over their own feeding without any interference.
Forget about making separate meals, pureeing foods, or spending extra money on commercially prepared baby foods. With BLF parents simply introduce their babies to nourishing, whole foods from the start, the same foods that they would eat themselves! Imagine less stress and more quality time spent with your baby at the dining table.
