Your baby can explore the exciting tastes and textures of solid foods through self-feeding.

Our community

Welcome to babyledweaners! Our community focus is on baby-led weaning (BLW), a way of introducing your developmentally-ready baby to solid foods through self-feeding. Here you'll find resources, help from experienced members, and occasional news bits on BLW. We invite you to ask questions about baby-led weaning, and share food preparation tips, recipes, your baby's food experiences, and pictures of your baby discovering new tastes and textures!
