My Baby Led Weaning Essentials

Having done baby led wening with two kids I know that some things I bought were worth every penny (hello explora bibs you wonderful little lifesavers) and some which were such a waste of money (that’ll be those bowls that stick to your highchair, who knew little kids were so strong?!) I used one of these highchairs and it lasted for both kids as well as being easy to clean. My favourite books for some baby led weaning inspiration were The Baby Led Weaning Cookbook and The River Cottage Baby and Toddler Cookbook both of which I thought were excellent and which I referred to time and time again. One book I didn’t get the chance to try but which I think is well worth a look is Baby Led Feeding  – the example recipe they have on Amazon looks lovely!
