WeeLearn - Educational Workshops for FAMILIES

Our Workshops are "Continuing Education" for Parents

Baby Led Weaning

Jill Rabin, Pediatric Speech Pathologist & Board Certified Lactation Consultant, will examine the transition from breast and/or bottle feeding to solid foods and how use of the Baby-Led Weaning approach can impact overall health, oral structural development and overall developmental abilities in at-risk and typically developing babies.  Food choices, influential environmental food factors, and feeding aids to use with at-risk babies will also be explored. Feeding videos of at-risk babies and portions of Gill Rapley's Baby-Led Weaning Video will be used to demonstrate the Baby-Led Weaning technique.
