HELP! My Baby Has NO Interest in Food at First

  • Why you DON’T need to worry if your baby isn’t eating much early on in BLW...it’s not your job! You DO have other jobs & I break those down but worrying about HOW MUCH or even WHETHER your baby is eating, that is not your job!
  • When most babies DO start to experience an uptick in solid food intake and become less reliant on milk for nutrition...and also what you can do if your baby DOESN’T experience this, it may be a quick fix.
  • Why stressing about baby not eating early on in BLW is a pretty big waste of your time and in the larger scheme of things is NOT problematic. Practice makes perfect though, so we’re talking about how to optimize your baby’s success for self-feeding down the road once they DO start taking to self-feeding.

LISTEN TO THIS EPISODE

The first few days, weeks & even months of baby-led weaning can feel BRUTAL. Like your baby isn’t eating a lot and you’re worried they’re not “getting enough” or missing out on iron or what if their growth starts to falter??...

Fear not! MOST babies don’t take IMMEDIATELY to food and that’s because they need time to learn HOW to eat. In this episode we’re breaking down WHY your baby is probably not super interested in food at first and WHAT to do (and NOT do when this happens!)
