Created by pediatric dietitians, Baby Led Feeding is the most comprehensive online course for parents who want a step-by-step plan for gradually and safely feeding their 6-12 month old baby. By the end of this course, you’ll know exactly what to feed your baby, how to safely serve it, and when to move into the next stage.
First, take a deep breath.
You’re doing an amazing job — the mere fact that you’re here researching how to best feed your baby (probably at 2 a.m with spit up stains on your PJs) proves it.
We know there’s a lot of pressure out there to skip purées and spoon feeding altogether. As fellow parents, we feel it too.
But as registered dietitians, speech language pathologists and research-obsessed feeding experts, we’re here to tell you that the traditional straight-to-a-chicken-drumstick style of baby-led weaning isn’t the only “right way” to start solids and prevent picky eating.
You can absolutely go straight to finger foods IF you feel comfortable and IF your baby is showing signs they’re ready, but you don’t have to.

What is Baby Led Feeding?
(Think of it as the best of both worlds between purees and baby-led weaning!)
Baby Led Feeding is my signature method of starting solids that takes the heart of the latest feeding research and removes all the mom guilt.
It involves responsively feeding based on your baby’s cues, skills and sense of independence, all while gently nudging them to continually advance in textures using our signature tool, the Texture Timeline™.
Whether you start with purees or finger foods doesn’t matter. You start where your baby is ready and interested, and you focus on swiftly progressing them from there.
It’s an approach to starting solids that truly baby-led.
Want to start with Baby Led Weaning? Great! I’ll walk you through that.
Want to ease in with purees first? Also great! I’ll walk you through that.
Want to mix approaches? Guess what? Yah, you got it.
This is about building your confidence and doing what your individual baby needs.
That’s exactly why I’ve developed the Texture Timeline™, a first-of-it’s-kind tool that’s exclusive to My Little Eater. The methodology behind it is meant to make sure that your baby is advancing in textures and skills in a timely manner to help avoid picky eating and encourage them to love all foods.
Because let’s be real…by around 9-10 months of age, the way babies are fed should actually look the same, no matter which method you start with. From there, babies will continue to hone in on their skills so that by 1 year, you’ll have a happy self-feeding and adventurous eater. We promise.
And if you just felt that twinge of mom guilt because your 9 or 10-month-old is still eating mostly purees….Let It Go like Elsa. It’s never (ever) too late to start this process, and I would love to guide you through it.

Mama, pediatric dietitian and feeding expert with over 11 years in the field, founder of My Little Eater and creator of The Texture Timeline™.
These days, my boys are now adventurous eaters who love to try new cuisines, sit in fine dining restaurants with us and bonus…love to cook at home!
But things weren’t always that way. I’ve seen (and experienced) first hand the overwhelm, the worry and the confusion that sometimes comes with feeding kids, and now I’m here to help transform those feelings into complete confidence and excitement using expert feeding strategies, evidence based nutrition advice and mom to mom connection…so you can enjoy raising a healthy eater too!
With all the overwhelming and conflicting info…it almost robbed me of the fun and joy of starting solids. After all, this time only comes around once and I was not about to miss out on the happy, silly moments with my baby around food because of a little lack of confidence.
So, I decided I would delve into the research like no one before. I dissected, tested, tweaked and perfected the strategies for real life, so that I could remove the guesswork for others and show how to do this stuff in a way that was clear and straightforward! I’ve since gained over 11 years experience in the world of pediatric nutrition and feeding, and have helped thousands of parents through my online course!
Now, I’m here to help bring you the same confidence and know-how, so you can replace stressful thoughts with fun and joyful feeding. Because let me tell you…feeding can and should be fun. Having a baby that eats the same food as you, no fuss, and totally independently is totally possible.
Ideally you would start this course somewhere between your baby turning 4-5 months of age, as most babies are ready to start solids somewhere around 6 months old. However, if your baby is 7, 8, 9, 10 or even 12 months old and hasn’t begun on a wide variety of finger foods and you’re not sure how to serve them safely, this course is exactly what you need. If your child is 10+ months old and you’re comfortable with serving all types of finger foods, but they aren’t eating well and/or are picky, you’ll want to enroll in my Feeding Toddlers online course.
About 3 1/2 hours total! The best part is all the lessons are broken down into 15 min chunks or less – perfect for a quick learning sesh in between naps, while they play or after baby has gone down for the night! Pick up where you left off and re-watch lessons as many times as you want!
I’m a registered pediatric dietitian and feeding expert who has been practicing in the field for over 11 years. I graduated from a 4 year science degree at Dalhousie University with a major in Neuroscience, and then went on to complete 5 years of Applied Nutrition and Dietetics including a one year internship from Mount Saint Vincent University.
I’ve counselled hundreds of families in person and thousands of families virtually and have taught baby led feeding as live 3 hour workshops for over a year before deciding to convert it to an online course. Not to mention…I’m a mom of two and I’ve gone through this all myself. So I get what you’re feeling and what you need mama 🙂
I’ve consulted and partnered with various other feeding experts who are featured in the course or who have helped create the material to ensure the course covers feeding solids from ALL angles of development. Speech language pathologists, Occupational Therapists, certified CPR instructors, pediatric allergists as well as psychologists. To say this course is the ultimate source of expert information all in one place is an understatement. It truly is a reflection of all the latest evidence based practices and leaves no stone unturned.
A lifetime!! Watch and rewatch and use for your second or third child.
Also know that I’ve taken every major question and piece of feedback from thousands of parents over the years for how they like to learn, and continually add into the course to keep it the best on the market! And as part of my official MLE fam, you ALWAYS get access to the updates forever 🙂
This entire course is offered for the price of less than ONE private session with a dietitian. The amount of info and the level of care put into this course equates over $1000 worth of counselling and resources. Because my goal is to get this into the hands of as many parents who need my help as possible, I’m making this as affordable as I can for everyone.
