Should you offer your baby food and patiently wait for acceptance or demand that they eat it? In this interview I join registered dietitian Katie Ferraro at Baby Led Weaning we talk about “positive tilt” and how to find the “yes moment” with feeding.
In this episode we discuss:
- The “positive tilt” construct and how this indicates permission given by babies who agree to eat what is being offered to them at the table.
- The importance of understanding the way a baby communicates to avoid confusing their responses as behavior problems.
- Tips for parents on how to avoid frustrating mealtimes and help their babies grow up to be enthusiastic eaters
