Saw this interesting article on Pinterest about a trend known as Baby Led Weaning or Baby Led Feeding. Has anyone heard of this or done it? Thoughts?

Figured it would be a good discussion! Here's the link:

I've known many moms who took this approach. I didn't start DD1 on "solids" til around 6 months, and she was never big on puree's (which sucked for me bc I loved making baby food!) So we kind of took our own adapted approach to BLW.

I think my brother and SIL did a modified version of this. They still made her organic purees but they also let her explore foods on her own as well. She is 15 months old now and a really good and not picky eater.

No clue what I will do. I love the idea of making all my own baby food for Baxter so we will just sort of see where he takes it!

Thanks *Kiliki* for my amazingly perfect siggy!

Yep, I did this with my daughter. Didn't bother with purees.

I've done something similar to this with my kids, except I mashed their food up pretty good when they were babies because I am terrified of them choking. However, I just want to say, don't get your hopes up that it will create a less picky eater, lol. Both of my kids were so amazingly non-picky when they were the age of the baby in the article, and remained so until probably 18 months to 2 years. Now, my son is the pickiest eater I have ever met (I can count the foods he will willingly eat on one hand) and my daughter is pretty picky these days too. At least the foods she wants to eat are super healthy foods, but still, I think almost all kids are willing to try most foods when they're tiny and then they get alot pickier as they get into that toddler independence stage.
