  10. 10. WHY TRY BABY-LED WEANING? research is required on whether infants following BLW have adequate energy and iron intakes in particular (Cameron et al. 2012: 1600) To date, there has been very little research to support baby-led weaning and, until there is more evidence, it is difficult to draw any firm conclusions about the potential benefits or problems it may offer. (Reeves 2008: 109)
  11. 11. WHY TRY BABY-LED WEANING? Our results suggest that infants weaned through the baby-led approach learn to regulate their food intake in a manner, which leads to a lower BMI and a preference for healthy foods like carbohydrates. This has implications for combating the well-documented rise of obesity in contemporary societies (Townsend & Pitchford 2012: 1) Studies have shown that infants between the ages of 4 months and 2 years who consume foods that require chewing generally have higher intakes of all macronutrients than those infants who have yet to be introduced to chewable foods (Carruthet al. 2004, cited in Reeves 2008: 108)
  12. 12. WHY TRY BABY-LED WEANING? responsive feeding [is] one of the most important practices for encouraging healthy eating habits in early life and should be encouraged in parents to reduce the risk of obesity (Schwartz et al. 2011, cited in Cameron et al. 2012: 1581)
  13. 13. WHY TRY BABY-LED WEANING? Possible benefits • Hand-eye coordination • Speech • Family meals • Less stress • Cost • Healthy relationship with food 10 months
  14. 14. QUIZ • What do you need for BLW? • Basic equipment: chair & tray, mat, bib with pouch • When can you start? • Once Baby can sit up, and wants to try your food • What foods can you start with? • Simple foods: vegetables, fruits, bread • Should you stop breast feeding? • No • What are the possible benefits? • Hand-eye coordination, Speech, Family meals, Less stress, Cost, healthy relationship with food
  15. 15. LISTEN TO OTHER PARENTS http://www.babyledweaning.com/forum/
  16. 16. THINK ABOUT IT • Is it easy to do? • Do babies like it? • Do babies eat enough? • Do parents like it? • Does research tend to support it? YES NO     
