The phrase “baby-led weaning” was coined by Gill Rapley and Tracey Murkett in their book Baby-Led Weaning: The Essential Guide to Introducing Solid Foods. First popularized in Britain, the practice encourages babies to self-feed solid foods from the family meal instead of receiving purées via spoon
In this class we'll discuss common challenges, explore common questions, and review safety and logistical aspects of baby self-feeding
* Weaning in this case is meant in the British sense, not the American. In the UK, weaning means introducing babies to solids, whereas in the States it means giving up breastmilk or formula. To avoid confusion, we call our class Baby-Led Feeding.
