Re: Afraid of BLW

We have laminate in our house, I made some really big bibs and we just let our daughter go at it - the opportunity for her to learn/explore/be independant was fantastic.

Re: Afraid of BLW

I'm glad I found this thread - DH and I have been talking about trying BLW when the time comes, but wanted to find out more. I saw a recommendation in this thread for Baby Led Weaning by Gil Rapely, are there other books anyone recommends?

This was our experience too. When I gave them chunks they just knew the right size bite to take but if I put small bite size pieces on their trays they would just shove it all in their mouths and gag. We did not do blw with our oldest but did with the younger 2, I regret not doing it with my first. It was such a natural and gradual introduction with my younger girls. They really never gagged and learned to be very neat eaters from pretty early.
