Who controls feeding- the mother or the child?

Could baby led weaning reduce obesity in children?

Eleven years have passed since I first looked at this topic so what has changed in that time?

While the story is pretty much the same as back then the health stats now are painting a very different picture. If you are a new parent, grandparent or caregiver involved in feeding young children then this information may be of interest to you.

Find out:

  • What is baby lead weaning (BLW) all about and has the latest research discovered anything new?
  • Where does breastfeeding fit in and have Baby Friendly Hospitals made any difference to our breastfeeding rates?
  • What maternal health benefits are there to be had from breastfeeding and does this relate to BLW practices in any way?
  • When should solids be introduced and in what order?
  • Are there any negative issues for parents to be aware of if choosing BLW
  • Does implementing BLW practices affect the development of obesity later in life?

If you would like help with family feeding problems or as a parent are struggling to find enough energy to get through your day, then consider an online nutritional assessment. Even just making a few tweaks to your current food intake could make all the difference to how you cope with the busy days ahead.
