This is course is perfect for you as I will cover this during the course and advise you accordingly. I have a great deal of personal experience here as I’m suffered with food intolerances and asthma since childhood and my children have also inherited these tendencies!
  15. I have twins, is this course suitable? Using this method with twins is highly recommended; it will give them independence from the start and allow you to eat your meal with them. There have been lots of twins attend my course and their parents would all urge you to do baby led weaning and make your life easier!
  16. My baby was premature, can I still do baby led weaning? Yes you can although you will need to be guided by your baby and start when they are ready. Some of the prem babies have not been ready until 9 months. As long as they are getting their milk feeds, this is perfectly ok.
  17. My bay has reflux and I’ve been advised to wean early, can I still do baby led weaning? Reflux is an interesting one and I always like to find out why the baby has reflux. I do not agree with early weaning as this can cause further problems. Baby led weaning can actually help as your baby can be fully in control of their food intake. It is better to have a chat with me about this in more detail.
  18. Where can I get more information? The first place to look is my facebook page Spring Nutrition, as I post everyday giving advice, tips and recipes.
