My LO will be turning 6 mo at the end of January so I'm beginning research on starting solids. So far, I really like the idea of using the baby-led approach. Our LO is on the small side so I'd prefer that he get most of his calories from breast milk for awhile and begin to experiment with food when he's ready.
I'd be interested in hearing people's experiences with starting solids with a LO in day care (at a day care center - 3 providers for at most 10 infants). The info I've read suggests introducing new foods early in the day so you can check for any reactions. If LO is going to have a reaction, I'd rather deal with it myself rather than having it happen at day care. Which means I'd only be introducing new foods on the weekends?
And has anyone done baby-led with a LO in a day care center? Looking at the shelves in the kitchen area - the older babies are on rice cereal and mush in jars. I'm not sure how comfortable the day care providers would be with doing baby-led, and I'm not sure that I'm comfortable with others besides me & DH doing baby-led.
