Baby Led Weaning by Gill Rapley and Tracey Murkett
Baby Led Weaning by Gill Rapley and Tracey Murkett is a logical, common sense guide to introducing your child to the world of solid foods. BLW is focused on offering babies a variety of finger-sized foods, so they can taste, explore and become acquainted with the same foods that their family are enjoying. BLW gives credit to our babies natural instincts around food, and allows them freedom of choice in regard to taste, texture, colour and smell of foods. Babies who are offered foods in such a way, become much more adventurous in their eating habits, and embrace solid foods in a very positive way. It is also beneficial for hand-eye co-ordination, neurological development, independence and social skills.
Baby-led Weaning: The fuss-free way to introduce solid foods
This website sets out to be a point of contact, with suggestions for where you can learn more and a means for you to contact me direct, rather than being THE place to find out everything you ever wanted to know about parenting and BLW. Having said that, the books and leaflets Tracey Murkett and I have written are a great place to start! The best source of information about what BLW is and why it makes sense is the original Baby-led Weaning. Then there's the Baby-led Weaning Cookbook , which will help you get started with cooking for a family. Baby-led Breastfeeding explains how breastfeeding works and how to get it to work for you, while Baby-led Parenting , offers a practical guide to understanding your baby and being the parent he or she really needs.
