Why is the use of a baby-led weaning approach an optimal way to introduce solids to babies with Down syndrome? Baby-led weaning is a child directed feeding approach that exposes babies to a variety of healthy food choices, allowing them to develop their own food likes and dislikes while simultaneously developing strong oral motor skills and feeding skills. Baby-led weaning also encourages and further develops fine motor and self-feeding skills. This lecture will address implementation and healthy feeding choices that can positively impact the health of children with Down syndrome and their families.
