    This is the only book you need!!

    How long to store homemade baby food, thawing, use a blender or a food processor, thinning, nitrates, bake or boil, plastic or glass for freezing - questions I didn't even think of were answered. Love the clear directions, fabulous recipe combinations, food recommendations for all stages, simple meal planning and much more. I also liked that it references current AAP recommendations and talks about food allergies and poop! Yes, poop gets scary when babies start to eat real foods. I love that this book is easy to read and it's almost like the author is speaking to you instead of at you! The author does not preach at me to not include meats or buy only organic foods because I'll harm my baby beyond recognition if I don't. We're on a tight budget and I can't always afford organic but I do want my babes to enjoy fresh and real foods - not that processed c.r.@.p! You won't be disappointed if you buy this one.

    Love this book! Great recipes, great index (not sure what other reviewer was on about it not having an index) The recipes are ordered by age and also by food types. There are over 150 recipes and that's a lot. I love it!

    Great recipes

    There is a lot of good information in this book. I wish there were more recipes - my little one has enjoyed most things I've made. Wish they were in some kind of order or indexed to make recipes easier to find.

    I purchased this book in hopes to gain a better knowledge and understanding of what foods can be given and how to safely prepare them. I have a 6 month old breastfed baby. After the repetitive details thoughout the first part of the book you finally get into the second part of the book that is dedicated to stage one, two, and three recipes. Although my son is 6 months old I started with stage 2 pureed carrots. I followed the exact directions and could not get the puree to a thin consistency. I could not afford to buy a food processor so I used a blender on the puree setting. Although it went against my better judgement to add water (because of his age) I did but it still turned out somewhat lumpy. He had projectile vomit as I was trying to feed him. A couple days later I tried something more simple, oatmeal cereal. I ground the oats in our coffee grinder as the book instructed, cooked with water on the stovetop and added breastmilk to thin. The consistency became to thinned out and runny with clumps of oatmeal. Two hours later more projectile vomit. I have given up and now buy Gerber. He loves it and it is not expensive, $.69 for a 4 oz jar. The other issue I had with this book is the foods it says you can feed a 4 month old. Mashed avocado is their suggestion which goes against the 7 to 8 month suggestion in "what to expect the first year" reference book. This book has been the only reference guide that gives an both viewpoints unbiasly. After reading "Wholesome baby food" it seems like anyone can just wrote a novel and publish it but this is not suprising because the consumer market for babies have the most ridiculous products and ideas to sell to new parents.

    The author and this book make it sound so easy when in reality it is not. You need the equiptment, time, energy, and scientific formulas to create what Gerber has perfected.
