Weaning is such a memorable milestone. I have such fond memories of my 3 eager beavers enjoying their new food then graduate into real munchkins!
Here's how i did it- the 'Mommy-led' weaning way... 1. My goal is for baby to learn how to eat like us- using a spoon/fork and practice independent eating. 2. I want baby to enjoy food and create positive associations with mealtimes. Gagging (or worse choking) is not enjoyable for baby. 3. It's good to help baby a little in his food exploratory journey. It's easier for baby to gradually graduate from liquid to smooth puree then texture and crunch. 5. Less Mess is Best!
