Baby Led Weaning...more appropriately called Baby Led Feeding
From the time your baby is about 6 months old, they are sitting up and beginning to grab for your food. This is the time to strike while the iron is hot! In a nutshell, we will discuss getting rid of the blenders, the ice cube trays and the purees and saying ‘so long to mush!” Since breastmilk or formula will continue to be the primary source of nutrition until they are a year old, the main goal of feeding solids at this time is to give them an opportunity to learn. Rather than putting food in their mouth with a spoon or a fork, we give them the chance to explore different textures and tastes. Similar to learning to crawl or walk, which of course we can’t do for them, this allows baby to lead the way when it comes to eating. And teeth aren’t necessary! If you are interested in learning how meal times can be just you and your child, eating food that you enjoy with you and your family then I encourage you to attend this 1 hour workshop.
Cost - $12 (minimum of 5 people)
In 2008 Gill Rapley and Tracey Murkett wrote “Baby-Led Weaning: Helping Your Baby to Love Good Food” and in 2010 published an American version titled “Baby-Led Weaning: The Essential Guide to Introducing Solid Foods.” Why the two versions? Well, this is one of those instances in which the same word can have quite a different meaning despite being in the same language! Weaning in the UK refers to “adding complimentary foods” to your baby’s diet, loosely translating to providing something in addition to breastmilk or formula. In the US, however, weaning has a completely different meaning! We associate weaning with decreasing the amount of breastmilk or formula your baby is taking in. So, for the record, this class can really be better described as Baby Led Feeding as it is a method (although our parents and grandparents would scoff at calling it this!) of introducing your wee one to something other than a liquid.
