Overview

Baby-led weaning is the healthy, natural way to start your baby on solid foods—no stress, no fuss, no mush!

Ten years ago, Baby-Led Weaning ended the myth that babies need to be spoon-fed purées. In fact, at about six months, most babies are ready to discover solid food for themselves. Today, baby-led weaning (BLW) is a global phenomenon—and this tenth anniversary edition of the definitive guide explains all its benefits:
  • Baby participates in family meals right from the start, and learns to love a variety of foods.
  • Nutritious milk feedings continue while Baby transitions to solids at his or her own pace.
  • By self-feeding, Baby develops hand-eye coordination, chewing skills—and confidence!
Plus, this edition is updated with the latest research on allergy prevention and feeding Baby safely, a guide to using BLW at daycare, and much more. Here is everything you need to know about teaching your child healthy eating habits that will last a lifetime.

About the Author

Gill Rapley, PhD, and Tracey Murkett are the creators of the baby-led weaning movement. Gill, a public health nurse for twenty years and the mother of three, originated the theory of baby-led weaning. Tracey, a freelance writer and journalist, followed baby-led weaning with her daughter.
Gill Rapley has studied infant feeding and child development for many years. She worked as a public health nurse for over twenty years and has also been a midwife and a voluntary breastfeeding counselor. She developed the theory of baby-led weaning while studying babies’ developmental readiness for solids as part of her master’s degree and has since been awarded a PhD for research comparing spoon-feeding with self-feeding. Gill lives in Kent, England, with her husband and has three grown children, all of whom tried their best to show her that they didn’t need any help with solid foods.
Tracey Murkett is a writer, journalist, and breastfeeding peer supporter. After following baby-led weaning with her own daughter, she wanted to let other parents know how enjoyable and stress-free mealtimes with babies and young children can be. She lives in London with her partner and their daughter.
