What is BLW weaning?
BLW-style weaning, also known in English as Baby Led Weaning, means self-directed weaning, this is a fairly popular method in Europe, but has only been introduced to Vietnam recently. With this method of weaning, the baby has the right to decide on his own food and can eat whatever he wants , of course, parents must also respect the child’s decisions and preferences.
This self-directed weaning method can help stimulate the baby’s development in all aspects, especially motor skills and handling situations.
BLW-style weaning still has to follow the following methods:
- The most important source of nutrition at this time is still breast milk.
- Even if children choose their own dishes, you still have to prepare enough 4 food groups: Starch, protein, fat, vitamins and minerals. But still ensure variety so that children do not get bored.
- Feed your baby in increasing amounts from little to more, from smooth to coarse, and from thin to thick.
- Feed your baby right for his age, right in terms of methods, ways of eating and or dishes.
- Parents must teach their children the habit of eating at the right time, as well as feeding their children with the family.
- And most importantly, you should not force your child to eat too much, or eat foods that the child does not like.
Benefits of the BLW weaning method
The BLW weaning method helps babies choose their own food intake and control their portions , which in turn will give them the opportunity to develop essential skills such as hand-eye coordination, feet and eyes to be able to adapt to the baby’s eating conditions.
In addition, this method also helps the baby to recognize and learn to distinguish the types of food that the baby’s body needs to supplement. From there, it helps the body, as well as the baby’s digestive system, gradually adapt, perfect and optimize. If you feed your baby with this method for a long time, parents can monitor and evaluate the child’s development until the baby is an adult. From there, parents only need to arrange their baby’s menu to include the foods that they love and choose the most in the BLW diet.
In addition, nutritionists believe that the BLW method will reduce the child’s obesity. Because babies only eat the foods they like and stop when they are full.
Notes when feeding babies BLW
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the most appropriate time for babies to start solids is when they are over 6 months old , at this time their digestive system can digest more complex foods than milk.
Your baby’s food must always be completely cooked , and don’t give him raw or rare food, because the baby’s immature digestive system can’t handle these foods.
Parents must let the baby sit down to eat, not let the baby lie down or lean back while eating to avoid choking or choking on food.
Do not add salt and sugar to baby food.
Food according to the baby’s BLW must be cut into small pieces, suitable for the baby’s hand to hold and hold.
In 1 tray of food each session, you should only put 3-4 dishes in your baby’s tray.
