Re: Benefits of BLS
It's easier. No special foods to prepare, no time spent spoon-feeding.
It gives baby some to do. Maneuvering cheerios into your mouth is a fun new game for a baby!
It allows baby to completely control her intake of food. You don't have to wonder if you put too many spoonfuls in her mouth, because you know that she ate what she wanted.
There's no one right way to do things. You can choose to do it one way or the other or you can combine spoon-feeding and BLS in any way that works for you.
