Baby led weaning..

I have touched briefly on baby led weaning (BLW) before. I have had a few queries about it and what Emilia eats. So let’s talk about it here. Put very simply, Emilia eats what we eat. There’s no separate meal times for her. There’s no purees or supermarket bought baby food. Don’t get me wrong,…

It’s been a while…

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a blog over at The Emerging Dietitian. You may have noticed my work over at FarmGate OnlineĀ (if you haven’t, I highly suggest you head over and take a look).
