    BLW = Baby led weaning. This means you don't "feed" the baby with a spoon and purees.... you start them on finger food after 6mo, when they are ready :)

    I'm in the US, so I'm a little confused as to the meaning of a few words. I can only think of one right now, though:

    What does "broody" mean?

    broody is used a lot when people really want something (like a baby) but for whatever reason can't have it yet (WTT, not pregnant yet, wanting a second child etc.) :)
