Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“This engaging resource features lots of recipes to encourage baby independence during weaning and should match the popularity of the previous guide.”
Library Journal
Library Journal
Nurse Rapley and Murkett (coauthors, Baby-Led Weaning) continue their weaning philosophy with a cookbook. They write, "there is no need for 'baby food,' purees or spoon feeding." From around six months, the baby is encouraged to explore food and make choices, with supervision, of course! There is a handy developing skills chart that helps parents understand when the baby is ready to grasp food with a fist or pick it up with a refined pincer grip. The authors also discuss the types of food a baby can eat and how to offer them. There are many surprising recipes, including mild Thai Green Fish Curry, the British dish Bubble and Squeak (cabbage and potatoes), and Quick Oatmeal Fingers. The advice on meal planning with the baby in mind is especially helpful and allows the whole family to have dinner together.Verdict This engaging resource features lots of recipes to encourage baby independence during weaning and should match the popularity of the previous guide.—Barb Kundanis, Longmont P.L., CO

    A Must-Read for Moms Introducing Solids

    I heard about baby-led weaning from a friend in England and wanted to know more about it, so I bought this book. It is extremely useful, easy to read, and you can skip around chapters if you wish. It also includes stories from parents who have used baby-led weaning, as well as adorable pictures of babies eating. I highly recommend this book to any parent looking for an alternative way of introducing solids without purées.
