        Hi Adriana, regarding your question the Baby-led-weaning method skips the initial puree phase, thus starting directly with appropriate presented finger foods (soft and easy to grasp), which facilitates infants’ self-feeding from the beginning of the complementary feeding process.
        In our opinion, offering purees and mashed foods to babies even if they are practicing blw is a way to expand their exposure to a wider variety of textures and acceptance of different foods. Furthermore, purees and semi-liquid foods are also part of a varied diet in adulthood (dips, sauces, soups, yogurt, etc). If you offer these types of textures, allow her/him to feed herself/himself, letting him pick up the spoon on his own and bring it to his mouth.

        Hi Viviana, the answer to your question is yes!
        However, it is important to consult with your pediatrician first, especially if there are or were any special medical conditions. Otherwise you can look for signs of readiness, which indicate that your baby is ready to begin complementary feeding.

      Hi Alex, from our point of view one of the great benefits of the BLW is the fact that the baby can practice and develop fundamental oral and motor skills. Other benefits are that the baby learns to eat independently from the beginning, can explore and engage with different textures and is part of the family meal, eating almost all the same foods as the other family members (with some modifications in their presentation).
