Baby-led weaning is the go-to practice today for parents to transition their baby’s diet to solids food by teaching them to feed themselves from one family meal, and here to carefully walk parents through that confusing and intimidating process is Simone Ward, creator of one of the most popular toddler food blogs, Zayne’s Plate.
