Bronwen and Thierno’s second child, Oscar, was exclusively breastfed for six months before they introduced baby-led weaning (BLW) into their lives.
Uncertain how Oscar would cope they were amazed by the rapid development in dexterity and social skills which he showed in just a few weeks.
Since BLW exploded onto the parenting scene, many parents and health professionals have embraced it as the most natural and logical way to introduce solid foods. However, not everyone has heard of it, or understands how easy weaning can be using this approach.
BLW is more convenient, nutritious and cost-effective than using purees. It provides a gentle transition from milk feeding, allowing your baby to eat as much as he wants, at his own pace.
This film follows Oscar through his irst six months of solid foods, identifying the key features and progression of BLW both within and outside the home.
Oscar’s taste knows no bounds as hedemonstrates with ease his ability to eat fruit and vegetables as well as chunks of meat. But its not just to do with eating; sharing family mealtimes boosts a child’s independence and develops their hand-eye coordination and chewing. Don’t let your baby miss out - time to throw away those jars!
