    Default Baby led weaning

    I am very interested in trying BLW with my 6 month old who has been eating purees since 3 1/2 months old. Can somebody please give me suggestions of suitable foods to offer? What foods are popular with your little ones?

    Definitely buy the Gil Rapley BLW book as it has all the info you need, we started with steamed brocolli ( easy to hold) and roasted sweet potato sticks ( cut into finger size sticks) then thick wedge cut slices of avocado and banana , once they get the hang of biting, chewing and swallowing ( usually after a few weeks) then we started giving him what we were eating, obviously fresh food only, no packet/processed food, no added salt etc, by 8 months he was eating grilled salmon and butter chicken curry!
    Don't be afraid to add flavor like ginger , garlic, spices, oil and fresh herbs!
