What is Baby-Led Weaning?
Hi, I'm Katie Ferraro, Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and mom of 7 kids. I help families & babies start solid foods safely using baby-led weaning (BLW).

Baby-led weaning is an alternative approach to traditional spoon-feeding where babies learn to eat real, wholesome, age-appropriate foods from their first bites.

I developed "The 100 First Foods Approach" to BLW to provide parents and caregivers with a feeding framework to master baby-led weaning. 

Babies who are exposed to the greatest variety of foods, flavors, tastes and textures - early & often:
  • ...are more likely to become independent eaters
  • ...are less likely to become picky eaters, and
  • ​BLW saves YOU time, money and sanity!

Hi, I'm Katie Ferraro! I'm a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, baby-led weaning specialist and mom of 7 kids. I help families and their babies start solid foods safely using baby-led weaning (BLW).

Baby-led weaning was a HUGE savior for me as a new parent. I struggled so much and felt so frustrated trying to spoon-feed my oldest daughter. When my next babies - quadruplets - were ready to start solid foods, I knew I needed a better mindset and a more natural, baby-led approach to feeding. Enter baby-led weaning: a straightforward approach to raising independent eaters.

Our quadruplets ate over 100 foods before turning 1...and feeding became so much FUN that I shifted my nutrition practice to focus entirely on baby-led weaning. I refined my "100 First Foods" approach to BLW with our next (and final :) set of multiples - baby twins - and I have since shared my feeding framework and information about safely starting solid foods with tens of thousands of parents, caregivers and healthcare professionals around the world.

In addition to writing, teaching and speaking about baby-led weaning, I am also an Associate Professor of Nutrition at the University of California San Francisco School of Nursing and an Assistant Clinical Professor of Nutrition at the University of San Diego Hahn School of Nursing. My hope is that the resources I create will help give YOUR baby the safest and most successful start to solid foods possible!
