Absolutely ! When a baby feeds himself he knows when he is full and where to stop . Whereas when he is being fed by someone else, there is always a doubt of being overfed or underfed .

I guess this will be better so that later they will know to self-feed

Sangeetha Krishnaswami baby led breastfeeding or BLW is a process or method by which a baby is given a substitute and complementary food with the breast milk to make the make the baby start eating in a small bitesize pieces you can simply cut a small carrot and make long strips out of it which the baby can hold in the fist and chew it down this process will help the baby to positively interact with the eatables and help them assess the taste the texture and the flavour of the food making it it possible for the child to to orient himself towards eating

Hi Sangeeta Krishnaswamy! thanks for your question .it is an interesting one. In baby Led weaning ,baby is the the key controller of the weaning process in the sense baby decides what he would pick and choose from the plate filled with finger food offered to him rather than being served with purees by the caretaker.. The idea behind baby led weaning is that they get independent soon and feed themselves. There have been many studies which have proved that messy eaters may be better and faster learners in the long run.
