Our Favourite Buys for Baby Led Weaning
Of course one of the best thing about baby led weaning is that you don’t need to buy specific foods just for your child, but I know that for us a few things that we bought certainly made the process a lot easier!
I loved the Tommee Tippee roll up bibs* as they were brilliant at catching food that was dropped before it hit the floor. My kids would love picking food back out of the pocket too. They’re also really handy for being able to roll up and pop in your bag when you go out.
We had an Ikea antilop high chair which lasted both kids and was brilliant.They’re really cheap and easy to clean too. You can buy the antilop high chair trays on Amazon* and they’re perfect for putting your child’s food on while they eat.
We also loved The Baby Led Weaning Cookbook* and used a ton of recipes from it, I personally found it really helpful to use a cookery book that was specifically for people that were doing BLW that wanted to eat nice family meals still.
