**UPDATE 4/11/16 This piece has just been added to the Green Parent website – How to Get Started in Baby Led Weaning **

The latest issue of The Green Parent magazine (August/September) includes the second of my regular interviews with parenting experts.

I spoke to baby-led weaning authority Gill Rapley about the advantages of BLW and how to get started on this method of introducing solids.

Baby-led weaning is about respect for the baby, trusting they know what they need. It makes mealtimes more enjoyable for the whole family, as there is no pressure on the parents or the baby.

(I did BLW with my own son and would definitely recommend parents consider it as an option.)
