If you have decided to opt for baby-led weaning (BLW) there are often many questions about how to start.
It is important to keep in mind that the baby will "chew" the food we offer with his gums, tongue and palate. Therefore, the consistency of the food should be soft, but without the food mushing in his hands when he picks it up.
Food should be offered to the baby cut into strips, elongated in shape and larger than his fist. In this way, he will be able to pick them up easily and put them in his mouth.
Another consideration is to introduce foods gradually, one at a time. The most prudent way to do this is in the morning and offering the same new food to the baby for three days, in order to easily detect any allergic reaction and the food involved.
Finally, do not forget to also offer water to the baby once complementary feeding has started.
