Holistic Weaning Workshop

Our weaning workshops are held in small groups (or 1-on-1 sessions) and there are limited spots available.

Weaning is commonly explained as “the process of gradually introducing a baby to what will be its adult diet and withdrawing the supply of its mother’s milk. The infant is considered to be fully weaned once it no longer receives any breast milk (or bottled substitute).”

But more importantly it is also commonly used to refer to the stage when solid foods are introduced to a baby.

After being born, entering the world of food is probably your baby’s biggest next step and is often a confusing time for parents.

The Luxmama Club & Parent Prep asbl can help however!

 

Our workshop equips new parents to make informed choices when it’s time for baby to explore the world of food. During our intimate holistic weaning workshops we discuss all the topics where you will be faced with choices.

You will be provided with lots of information, demonstration of how to easily prepare and store food and simple solutions to prevent common pitfalls down the line.

  • When (not) to start (guidance as per the Luxembourg’s Ministry of Health (LMH), World Health Organisation (WHO), American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), UK Department of health, European Society for Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology, and Nutrition (ESPGHAN)

WHEN

21 May 2019 9:30 - 12:30am

When to book:

A great time to start exploring options and learning is when baby is around 4 months of age so you can slowly and gradually start learning and take a good look at the quality of your family’s current nutritional intake which is going to greatly influence baby's dietary habits. This way, you can set the stage for success by the time your baby joins in on the fun (around 6 months onwards) without having to rush yourself to get organised. But really any time when you are ready to learn more is good. Some even join prenatally.
