When I had my first daughter I had no clue about Baby Led Weaning. Maybe I was just so exhausted I didn’t pay attention to this popular technique, or maybe it just wasn’t as known as it is today. By the time I had my second daughter two years later I was very familiar with this method of food introduction. Baby Led Weaning is simply the idea of bypassing purees and waiting until baby is ready to self-feed. The benefits include fine tuning motor skills, chewing skills, dexterity, and healthy eating habits. If your child has limited exposure to food that requires them to bite and chew, it is more difficult for them to develop these skills.
That being said, we naturally did this with our first, and again with our second after realizing this was a method conducted by many mothers world-wide. With two kids it truly helps to simplify things in our home. The kids eat what we eat! The only difference being in the size in which the food items are cut to prevent choking. The girls are able to explore the food and enjoy the eating process.
A key component to a happy eater is whether they are comfortable in their eating environment. We are so lucky to have found the Ingenuity™ SmartServe 4-in-1 High Chair™. Our youngest truly enjoys sitting in her high chair not only for eating, but to play, and relax. I love how light and easy it is to move around the kitchen and dining room. The fact that it will truly grow with my daughter, changing into a booster seat, and even a chair that can pull up to the table when she is a few years old was a big component to why we love this specific high chair so much. The features are abundant, and as someone with two children I can tell you selecting the right high chair is important!
