Thread: Baby led solids

    Post Baby led solids

    Hello Everyone,

    My baby is now 8 months old I think we are already a little overdue for starting solids (yes, he shows all the signs). Anyway, I am interested in exploring Baby led solids. It's been mentioned in several threats. Does anyone know where I can find more infomration on the topic? (I am lookiing for details... e.g. which foods are appropriate to start with, bite size for the recommended foods, etc). So far, I have only found an overview article, but nothing that really tells me how to go about it.

    Thanks for your suggestions!

    Here is a resource you may find helpful: Baby Led Solids

    And you can still use the food chart from Wholesome Baby to help you decide which foods to start when

    Edited: Just wanted to add that Avocado and Sweet Potato are perfect first foods. Here's some nutritional info about Avocados and Sweet Potatoes

    There are also some great threads in here about it. If you do a search for "BLS" or "Baby Led" in the solid foods forum you'll find a ton of great info!

    The general recommendation is to start with foods like avacado, banana, and sweet potato cut into long french fry shaped pieces.
