#28: One Mama’s Journey into Starting Solids the Baby Led Way

interview with mama about baby led feeding

In this episode, I’m interviewing a Mama who is also a graduate of both my Baby Led Feeding and Feeding Toddlers online courses! She has a son who is now officially a toddler, she’s a stay at home Mama, and has some incredible experiences to share about her journey into solids, and into toddlerhood.

Listen in to hear why she started searching for help with introducing solid foods, what her concerns were, and what tips she has for bottle weaning and food throwing. She’s had some amazing wins since completing the courses, and I’d love for you to hear how relaxed she is about meal times now – it’s wonderful to see!

As always, if you get value from this episode, please remember to subscribe to the podcast, rate and review at Apple Podcasts, and share it with your friends! I’d love to have more of my graduates on the podcast to chat about their successes and give other Mamas some hope that this does get easier, and it doesn’t have to be stressful and scary. So please, send me an email at [email protected] if you’re interested in being a guest on the show!
