Baby-led weaning results in less food fussiness with no difference in BMI

July 18, 2017

Although baby-led approaches to complementary feeding did not significantly affect whether an infant had an appropriate body mass index when compared with traditional spoon-feeding, parents observed less fussiness in infants when baby-led feeding was used.

“Proposed advantages [to baby-led weaning (BLW)] include improved energy self-regulation, leading to improved body weight and reduced food fussiness,” Rachael W. Taylor, PhD, from the department of medicine at the University of Otago, New Zealand, and colleagues wrote. “However, concerns have been raised that children may not eat enough, particularly if self-feeding skills are poor.”
