Re: Purees or BLW with preemie

We started offering my 25-weeker purees around 6 months corrected, but she didn't show much interest or skill for months. She is now g-tube dependent, and we are doing a modified baby-led weaning approach that is working better than the guidelines we were given by the feeding clinic.

The nice thing about baby-led weaning is that you can offer at any time after baby hits the milestones of sitting up and being able to turn away. Letting them take charge is really important, so I would say start offering whenever you think baby might be ready but don't worry if it takes a long time before anything happens.
