Baby-Led Weaning

BLW stands for Baby-Led Weaning, which is a method of introducing and offering foods to infants and toddlers. ┬áIt is named BLW because the concept is that the baby eats when (s)he is ready, and will lead their own weaning away from breast milk or formula. I have also heard it called “Baby-led feeding” but it is more widely known as BLW so that is what I will refer to it as here. The most obvious difference in BLW from traditional weaning is there are no purees!
