Hi all. I just found out my daughter-in-law has found this "amazing" new movement online. It is called "Baby Led Weaning" which is a misnomer. Basically, it encourages women to start to wean at six months and start solid food without making the texture easier to swallow. I was shocked to find out that they want parents to give babies food that they have to learn to chew! And that gagging on the food is a normal way to get babies to learn to chew! As a nurse, I know choking is a bad thing for babies and that food is the number one cause of choking. I watched my granddaughter being fed large pieces of banana, strawberries, and cucumber cut into thirds and about 4 inches long. She gagged. She choked. She turned red. She finally got it out. I was so angry. My daughter-in-law will not listen to me. My son gives in to her. Here is their website:http://www.babyledweaning.comHere is their Facebook page which I highly recommend reading because women write about their concerns about gagging and are told it is all fine. Oh, and this group also says rice cereal is evil. https://www.facebook.com/babyledweaningWhat do you think?
