�I would highly recommend baby-led weaning having weaned my own children using this method. As a GP I often see the result of poor diet and lifestyle, so seeing a baby develop a healthy relationship with food from the offset using the baby-led weaning method is something I feel should be promoted. The advantages I have experienced with my own children include relaxed family mealtimes and a real enjoyment of food. They also make very healthy food choices without me having to �badger� them! Eating together is a real pleasure. I attended Julie�s Happy Little Eaters course and found the information invaluable. I would recommend this excellent step-by-step guide to any parent or health care worker.�

�Julie�s book is a welcome and invaluable guide for any parent or health care professional wanting to know exactly what Baby-Led Weaning entails, coupled with excellent nutritional advice for the whole family.

Baby-Led Weaning, is not a new concept. I have been recommending this method for a number of years and continue to be amazed at how skilled babies are at eating, making choices and regulating their appetites.

For many years, the guidance, unfortunately, was to wean early � and as babies were not developmentally ready to feed themselves, spoon feeding and pur�es were introduced. Following extensive research which showed that babies� nutritional needs were best met by an exclusive milk diet until 6 months of age (which coincides with most babies learning to sit, reach out and chew) the guidelines were changed in 2003.�
