My Baby Led Weaning Essentials
Having done baby led weaning 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 an Ikea Antilop highchair and it lasted for both kids as well as being easy to clean. We recommended them to everyone we knew and you can also buy accessories for Antilop’s too like highchair support pillows.
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!
