Hey y’all! Jess here!

Last week Ariel wrote an AMAZING article about traditional weaning for your babies. I’m going to share something a little different- baby led weaning.

Before I begin, I will reiterate what Ariel stated. Every baby is different, and every family is different. I urge you to take all the information but also do your own research and consult your pediatrician to find what will be the best fit for your family.

Hey Y’all, it’s Erin.

There was an interesting discussion on the ambassador Facebook page about using a diaper sprayer. (By the way, have you taken the opportunity to sign up to be a LilHelper Ambassador yet? If not check it out here.)
