I am a pediatric occupational therapist that recently designed a supportive parent and baby 6 week class series that focuses on play, infant development, motor milestones, tummy time, sensory processing, bonding/attachment, stretching, songs and playful activities to do with babies.

Additionally, I teach a specialized class for parents on safely transitioning to solids using the baby-led weaning (BLW) approach.

What is Baby-led Weaning?

Baby-led weaning is a method of helping your baby learn to eat by allowing him/her to bring real, whole foods to their mouth to explore--bite, lick, suck and gnaw.
This concept was originally developed and coined by Gill Rapley, a former public health nurse in the U.K. BLW initially called “letting your child feed themselves from the very start of weaning” Whatever the family is eating the baby is offered opportunities to explore as well. The food is given to the baby and they are to grab and bring to their mouths themselves.

What clients says

I knew I wanted to try BLW with my daughter, but was so overwhelmed with all the information out there. Jillian came to my house for a consultation and helped to reassure me in how I was introducing food to my daughter. It was so helpful having another mom and professional to actually talk to and ask questions. I'd definitely recommend including Jillian on your BLW journey! She's professional, personable, has first hand experience with her son and has really done her research.
