I would like to know if anyone is doing baby-led weaning and how it is working out for them.
My DS is 6.5 months and I started him on solids when he was 5 months and a week. He has been taking basic fruits (apples, pears, bananas, avocados, prunes) and vegetables (squash, sweet potato, peas, carrots) all pureed. I just found out about baby-led weaning and was wondering if it could work for him. How do I start this new approach? How do I know he won't choke?
Also, he has been bottle fed since he was 2 months old (oh, I felt so blessed when I was breastfeeding him, but unfortunately it did not work out well... I have had very sore nipples for some reason... I still pump and he gets about 15 oz of breast milk a day and 10 oz of formula milk...). Does baby led weaning work with bottle fed babies the same way it does with breast-fed ones?
Thank you for all the insights.
