This list of baby led weaning first foods includes a variety of naturally nutritious treats that will be easy for your baby to handle.
When you try new foods from this list, introduce each one separately, at least 4 days apart, as per the 4 day rule.
This will help you spot any sign of digestive discomfort or allergic reaction and quickly identify the cause. And remember – you should always check with your doctor before introducing new foods to your baby.
Clicking on the links in this list will take you to pages that offer more information about each type of food. Please note that these pages may contain recipes for spoon-fed babies too!
