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.


June 9, 2022—Positive Tilt: Get Permission from Your Baby with Marsha Dunn Klein, OTR/L, M.Ed.

Episode Description

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
