Foster health for your infant. Learn how to nurture them within their digestive development, while making sure they get all the right nutrients at each age.
Bio-logical Weaning (life-logical weaning) is a holistic, back-to-basic health approach that guides parents and health professionals on how to gradually wean infants off milk onto solids from six months to two years, based on their digestive capabilities, capacities and nutrient requirements, while also considering allergenic foods and intolerances.
Described as a timely revelation for our infants, the core philosophy of Bio-logical Weaning is Plain + Slow = Gain + Grow. By offering food, quantities and textures in a plain and slow way we highly aid developmental sleep, and regular stools because the child’s digestive system is respectfully introduced foods, nutrients, textures and quantities that are conducive to their natural evolution of enzyme and pancreas function and physical health.
This practice is a unique, researched based method of introducing solids to any infant, and is a total game changer for infant health. Especially for those that have been diagnosed with colic or reflux earlier in their life (or what I call Digestive Overload, the cause of these symptoms) or those that have intolerances, or weight issues. It puts a spotlight on the hype, marketing and ill health practices that parents are currently being taught, while having the potential to aid future obesity rates. The confidence and calm that this practice delivers also does a world of good for a parents mental health.
The Bio-logical Weaning practice, with the Plain + Slow = Gain + Grow philosophy, is progressive and paramount for this time, creating necessary changes in the often unfavourable current care practices for our infant’s wellbeing.
Philippa, your Bio-logical Weaning Guide has been our life saver! Before we discovered it my daughter wasn’t sleeping, would cry in obvious pain from being constipated. But after a week of following your brilliant advice all that changed. I had my happy little girl back. We are eternally grateful to you.
It’s time for a new way,
A way that is infused with nature’s gift of biology.
That is truly infant led...
Nurturing your baby onto solid food is, on the whole, an amazing time as you introduce different tastes and textures, watch the funny faces your child makes with each new food, and soak up the messy exploration. Of course all of this also happens as you try to unravel what nutrition and health means to you as a parent. This may mean you start asking questions like...
Where do I start?
What is the best way to offer food?
Is traditional pureed food best or Baby Led Weaning?
What age is appropriate to start solids?
Should I introduce solids at four or five months to avoid allergies?
Is baby cereal healthy?
How much am I meant to give my baby?
What should they be eating?
How do I make sure they get enough iron?
What does a day with solids even look like?
What is this ingredient? Is it safe?
What effects can/will this food have for my child?
How can I feel confident that I am doing the best for them?
And the questions can go on and on, sometimes delivering even more confusion within the contradictory responses as you try to decide what is best. Especially when we consider that a lot of the information parents currently receive is based on commercial profit margins as companies, and in some cases national organisations, try to convince you to spend money, or take paths that aid them...
These days our infant’s digestive systems are being bombarded with far too much variety, textures and nutrients they cannot digest. They also seem to be experiencing intolerances that could be avoided, by slowing down our introduction of certain foods, and the way we serve these, to align with their exquisite developing digestive system.
Let me ask you this - did you know it takes two years for a child’s digestive tract to function like an adults? Two years! This is surprising to most parents given many are told to feed the same food they are having at a much earlier age than two. This biological fact doesn’t mean our infants are lacking in anyway. It’s simply the way we are all created, so why then are we in such a rush to have them eat like us?
The Plain + Slow = Gain + Grow philosophy offers a clear, logical, and respectful way of introducing solids that is in line with World Health Organisations Guidelines. It’s also in line with your infant’s needs because it’s based on their digestive biology. Not an adults.
So, if you’d like to explore the wonderful time of solids in step with your child’s natural digestive development and nutritional requirements, and feel confident in your choices by having a clear, researched based understanding of the ‘why’s and why nots’, then Bio-logical Weaning is for you.
Aligning with World Health Organisation recommendations, BabyCues Bio-logical Weaning Practice is underpinned by the ingenious philosophy of Plain + Slow = Gain + Grow, and this guide has all you need to nurture holistic health for your infant. It combines the best of the current methods of Baby-led Weaning and Traditional Purees, whilst leading the way with comprehensive wisdom, and research that decisively entwines with nature and your child's developing digestive system, teeth and jaw development and their cognitive motor skills.
