What is Baby Led Feeding?

(Think of it as the best of both worlds between purees and baby led weaning!)

It's my signature method of starting solids that takes the heart of the latest feeding research and removes all the mom guilt. 

It involves responsively feeding based on your baby’s cues, skills, and sense of independence, all while gently nudging them to continually advance in textures.
Whether you start with purees or finger foods doesn’t matter. You start where your baby is ready and interested, and you focus on swiftly progressing them from there
Forget the all-or-nothing approaches. 
Want to start with Baby Led Weaning? Great! I’ll walk you through that. 
Want to ease in with purees first? Also great! I’ll walk you through that.
Want to mix approaches? Guess what? Yah, you got it.
This is about building your confidence and doing what your individual baby needs.
I’ve developed what I call the “Texture Timeline™”, an exclusive tool to MLE, that will help you make sure your baby is advancing in textures and skills in a timely manner to avoid picky eating and love all foods!
Because let’s be around 9-10 months of age, the way babies are fed should actually look the same, no matter which method you start with (Gasp! Did you know that??). Then babies will continue to hone in on their skills so that by 1 year, you’ll have a happy self-feeding and adventurous eater!

Guess what that means for you and baby?

  • You can ease in slowly to more textured foods if you’re worried and kind of freaked out. See how your baby does, gain that confidence, and then keep moving forward!
  • You’re making sure your baby gets tons of exposure to a variety of textures and flavours no matter what method you start with, which will 100% reduce their risk of being a picky eater down the road.
  • You won’t have to stress about whether your baby is getting enough food and is healthy. Responsive feeding means you totally understand their hunger and fullness cues, and you can feel confident that you’re offering enough of the right types of foods for them to thrive!
  • You’re making sure your baby leads the process and becomes an independent eater as soon as they’re capable. They’ll have the skills to feed themselves (hand or utensil!) and will be eating all the same foods as you!
  • You can relax and enjoy this whole amazing and fun process…‘cause let’s be’ll never get this time back!

"I loved SO many things about this course...the online quick videos that you could watch while breastfeeding, the videos of babies eating, and all the recipes and resource sheets you get!! This program helped me understand all the different approaches to feeding my little one...I loved that it was based on evidence and not fads or trends. My daughter is 7 months now and I refer to this course often for refreshers or to look up a new recipe. It has given me the confidence and reassurance I needed to start feeding my adventurous little eater""

Frequently Asked Questions

Ideally you would start this course somewhere between your baby turning 4-5 months of age, as most babies are ready to start solids somewhere around 6 months old. However, if your baby is 7, 8, 9, 10 or even 12 months old and hasn’t begun on a wide variety of finger foods and you’re not sure how to serve them safely, this course is exactly what you need. If your child is 10+ months old and you’re comfortable with serving all types of finger foods, but they aren’t eating well and/or are picky, you’ll want to enroll in my Feeding Toddlers online course.

You have lifetime access to the entire course! If you ever need to brush up on material or would like to retake it at any point in the future, you can!
