Baby led weaning is one of the #1 things I wish I knew about starting with my first kiddo. One thing left out here is about how babies have little to no lipase in their body. (What the pancreas makes to break down the fats in food to be absorbed into the body). There are negatives to starting your baby too soon. I will 100% do BLW with Isla because of this.
When planning your one-year-old’s menu, remember that cholesterol and other fats are very important for his or her normal growth and development, so they should not be restricted during this period. See this sample menu for ideas for a one-year-old. Visit www.HealthyChildren.org.
