UNICEF published a study early this year saying “there exists a range of research that provides support for the principles that underpin it, including the developmental readiness of infants to feed themselves using their hands, and their innate ability to respond appropriately to both appetite and safety.
The National Childbirth Trust organization based in the UK said “ there is no research evidence to show that spoon-feeding babies is most appropriate or that puréed foods are needed”.
Baby-Led Weaning will not suit all infants and families, but it is probably achievable for most.
