Baby led weaning is an alternative to the traditional spoon feeding of purée when weaning babies from 6 months. The concept is that you give your baby finger food. With both my boys, I did a bit of both. Homemade purée to make sure something was going in and some finger food to play with. They soon learn what to do and I've found it great to be able to put together an easy packed lunch for when we're out and about with no worries about needing to warm up mush.
For first tastes, food which is soft and easy to chew works best. If you can cut it into long baton shapes which are easy to grip and manoeuvre to the mouth you'll also have more success.
Here are a few ideas to get you started which have been endorsed my kids.
: Just a few minutes
: 1 serving
I'd love to hear what success you've had with first finger foods and what favourites your kids enjoy.
