Baby led weaning, for us, has been brilliant but it has been messy, very messy. BLW is allowing your child to eat finger foods from 6 months, no spoonfeeding or purees, just offer them what you are eating as long as it is suitable for them health wise. The down side is that the food goes everywhere. Everyone has to go through this eventually anyway once spoonfeeding reduces and finger foods are introduced but with BLW the mess just starts earlier.
