The authors explain in detail the concept of baby-led weaning including the potential pitfalls that could be associated with it. They make it easy to start with your child as I have with my 6 month old.

Very informative. The best way to feed a baby is to trust then to do it themselves! :) Wish it was on the shelves of bookstores in the U.S, so more people would be inclined to read it.

This system is downright dangerous. A young baby could easily choke and does not have the oral experience to manage this. As a developmental specialist I strongly disagree with the concept !!!!!!!!!
