Online Weaning Course
Why this Course?
Starting weaning can feel overwhelming for many parents and carers. With so much to learn (when and how should I start?) and so many approaches to choose from (baby-led weaning or spoon feeding?), it can feel difficult to know where to begin. In this complete digital course, Charlotte guides you through each and every stage of your baby’s transition to solids, with video tutorials, demos, downloadable resources, recipes and live access to Charlotte. Once finished, you’ll feel confident in your choices and ready to wean your baby safely and successfully.
Charlotte’s unique friendly, reassuring and practical style is paramount to making this weaning course different – helping you to understand the current guidance around feeding your baby in an easy and digestible way. This course also includes plenty of attention to detail, helping to really answer all the questions you might have.

“We absolutely loved the weaning course, we covered it in the two separate parts and kept checking in on episodes as we went through our weaning journey with our little one. Having a little one means you don’t have much spare time to do a course, but this course is perfect for that because the episodes are so short and succinct…
I learnt so much being a first-time Mum and our weaning journey couldn’t have gone better. We also used Charlotte’s weaning book alongside the course and completed the 30-day plan. Our little one will eat/try anything. All the Mums at my baby groups ask me how we did it because they have to add fruit/something sweet to every meal to get their little one to eat it. But our little one loves it all, it’s been so reassuring as a Mum. Our little one did have an adverse reaction to quinoa as part of the 30-day plan, but with the course and book allergen guidance we knew it was a delayed reaction and what the next steps were…
I recommend Charlotte’s course and book to all Mums and it’s going to be a gift I give to my friends and family when they come to weaning their little ones.”
