Hi Beccy ,
i did baby led weening with my L.O and was fab , i think ( for me ) it was the best way for my baby and myself to do this stage , i found it great for my L.O to get to grips with feeding herself as well as learning hand eye co-ordination . i used to give her a hipp organic pouch or mashed up dinner i had made as well so i knew she would have enough as well as milk .
I started with things like banana, pieces of carrot , toast , apple , bread sticks ect .
tip - its messy so be prepared !
