Trickier textures: pushing your baby’s palate past purees

Moving past purees can sometimes be trickier and oftentimes it’s the parents who are more nervous about this than the child. I welcome Katie Ferraro, registered dietician specializing in baby led weaning, mom of seven, and founder of Baby Led Wean Team to discuss moving past purees to more textured foods. We discuss:

  • Why parents are sometimes nervous to move past purees
  • Recognizing gagging versus choking
  • Misconceptions surrounding BLW and textures
  • How to encourage trickier textures in a safe way
