Forget apple mush and those little jars and spoons – simply let your baby feed herself. A baby’s instincts will lead him to do the right thing when it’s the right time. Trusting those instincts is what baby-led weaning is all about.
Perhaps we have forgotten what it is like to be a child and see the world as exciting. Children shriek when they are happy, they laugh loudly, they shout when annoyed, and they want to explore and discover everything around them with eager enthusiasm. Children are not mini-adults. They have big emotions and do not always know how to control them.
