Purees are Important
Purees are an important texture for baby to master. But they’re not the only texture babies can eat!
And while some people mistakenly believe that baby-led weaning means totally skipping the spoon-feeding of purees, you CAN honor the self-feeding principles of baby-led weaning AND help babies master purees, if you let BABY lead the way.
When it comes to purees, you can pre-load baby’s spoon, hand the spoon to baby (handle side first) and then guide baby’s hand to mouth (…gently at first). Your baby will get the hang of self-feeding pretty quickly, but the pre-loaded spoon is key.
