Couple of month back I came across a group on FaceBook that was randomly mentioned on another forum. Out of curiosity and since Little A was 7 months old then we were already on solids and I wanted to start Little A weaning off Breastmilk. I joined the group, But instead what I found out was this amazing method of Introducing solids to your baby and what impressed me was the ability of a baby to self feed itself.
To know What, how and when to start Blw, I suggest you visit the follow links before you start to get a better understanding.

BLW vs TRADITIONAL WEANING from MY POINT of VIEW:
So we have been BLWing for this past couple of months and I am amazed at the ability to self feed himself and that too being a toothless. He is capable of eating almost everything on his own now. And am able to introduce more variety and texture to him. Make sure you don't give salt / sugar / chili to your baby before 1 year at-least.
If you are planning on doing BLW for your little one, I also suggest you join the Baby Led Weaning (Introducing Solids) India on FaceBook. There are many Pro BLW mums and they will be able to answer many queries and also lots of success stories and videos for inspiration. If you are a new mum or a breastfeeding mother, I would recommend you join Breastfeeding Support for Indian Moms on FaceBook. Remember to exclusively Breastfeed your baby for 6 months and then introduce solids as a complimentary to Breastmilk and not to replace Breastmilk. No solid can provide your baby with the nutrition provided by breast-milk.
Happy Baby Led Weaning!
