Part of parenting is learning through mistakes. Personally, I could write a book on the missteps I’ve taken despite thinking I’m doing the right thing in the moment.

Jenny Best, founder, and CEO of Solid Starts, and mom of three explains how her errors and anxiety about feeding her first child opened the door to understanding and emerging as an expert in baby-led weaning.

In this episode of Yoga|Birth|Babies, Jenny shares her path from the stage as a ballerina for New York City Ballet to becoming a food and farming expert. She explains how baby-led weaning can make mealtime and family life so much less stressful and pave the way to more adventurous eaters.
