The information about introducing solids online is a mess!
Are you about to start introducing complementary foods to your baby? Are you looking for accurate information but don't know if you can trust your online searches? Don't have time to read a whole book?
I wish I could get all my info at a single place online
What if there was one place you could get all the latest information about introducing complementary foods to your baby? What if the information was gathered and presented by a registered dietitian and backed by the latest peer-reviewed scientific articles? What if this information was presented in short bite-sized videos that can be watched from any device at any time of day?
Jessica Coll's Baby Led Weaning (BLW) Online Course
Welcome to the BLW online course. The one place online where you can get all the most accurate and up-to-date information about introducing complementary foods to your baby. Designed by a registered dietitian and mom with experience.
With BLW, babies feed themselves with whole foods starting at 6 months old. They skip the puree stage all together. Babies continue with their milk feeds as previously and they eat foods like omelettes, fresh fruit and soft meatballs. Learn how to get started with BLW and get all your questions answered by signing up for this online course.
Before doing Baby-Led Weaning (BLW) with your baby, it is important to proceed safely. Among other things, make sure that:
· your baby is ready and does not start too early
· your baby is sitting at 90 degrees
· you do not place food in his/her mouth with your fingers
· the environment is calm during meals
· you offer the right foods to your baby
· you watch your baby eat at all times
· you contact a pediatric registered dietitian to make sure you are proceeding safely
BLW is contraindicated for babies at risk of dysphagia, such as babies who have an anatomic disorder (cleft palate, tongue tie), a neurological disorder (developmental delay, hypotonia, oral hypotonia) or a genetic disorder. Follow-up by a health professional (doctor, pediatric registered dietitian) is necessary for babies at risk of anemia such as babies born prematurely, babies with low birth weight (less than 3000 g), worries related to growth, babies born to an anemic mother, baby for whom cow's milk was introduced early and/or a vegan baby.
