What is Baby Led Feeding 
(...aka Baby Led Weaning)?
Here at the Fortified Family, we are big fans of a baby and child-led approach to feeding. Not only is this the most natural way to introduce your baby to solids, but it’s easier, cheaper, safer and way less stressful than spoon feeding.

Baby led weaning is an approach to starting solid foods based on the premise that babies who feed themselves the wholesome foods provided by their parents: 

  • Accept a much wider variety of foods throughout their lifetime
  •  Avoid picky eating and
  •  Even have lower rates of overweight and obesity as they get older. 

Sounds great, right? A self-feeding baby?!
