Stage 3 weaning usually starts around 9-10 months and it’s when you turn up the textures a notch to provide more challenging foods, the final step before family foods.
Baby Led Weaning has different set of considerations than traditional spoon weaning and a lot of what you find online isn’t actually correct, so I wanted to put this blog together for you to guide you through when and how to start.
Many toddlers will quite happily eat with their hands, and it can be frustratingly messy. Others are more than happy to keep clean and let you spoon-feed them. Find out how they should be eating in toddlerhood and how to encourage them to use cutlery.
When my first baby became a toddler he insisted on feeding himself. All the delicious dishes that needed a spoon were outright rejected and all he would eat were finger foods.
