Product Description

Review

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. --Doctor Hannah Warren MBBS, BSc, MRCGP, DRCOG, DFSRH

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 purées 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. --Penny Lazell RGN RHV Independent Health Visitor and Children s Sleep Consultant www.healthvisitor4u.com

I did Julie Clarks course and could not recommend her advice highly enough! the book takes you through all we covered and it has transformed the diet of our whole family. My 1yr old eats everything I give her independently to the point people in restaurants stop to comment!
I stop to consider the balance of each meal and her weekly diet as a whole.
For me this is the most natural and fantastic way to wean your child, to start them on the path to life long optimal health!

I read this book in response to attending a weaning picnic led by Penny Lazell. She spoke extremely passionately about Baby-Led Weaning and recommended this book. My daughter Emelie is almost 5 months old and my husband and I are extremely keen to try this approach. I found this book extremely practical and full of useful information, I am sure we will be referring to it constantly.

I cannot recommend the book enough! I first met Julie at the Bluewater Baby and Toddler Show and was introduced to the book and the doidy cup. We were unsure about whether to do BLW but she made the decision for us! It's easy to follow, has great pictures and recipe ideas, and even stories from other mums too! If you need guidance with blw then I'd definitely suggest this book!

A clear, concise guide on how to move your baby from milk feeds to solids.This book really has everything you need to know about shopping, preparing and presenting healthy whole foods for weaning babies. I'm going to get a copy for every pregnant mum I know. It's so heartening to see a book that encourages feeding such a wide range of foods and all nutritionally balanced. Brilliant.

I bought this as well as Gill Rapley's BLW book. I think this one is much better than Gill's, whereas Gill's is much more theoretical and gives a lot of reasons why you should do BLW, this book by Julie Clark is far more practical and tells you how to get on with it. I love all the practical tips like which yoghurts to buy and avoid, which highchair to buy, sample menus for a week etc.
It also has a real-life case study running all the way through it, which I always find useful as it makes it all a bit more real, and you can usually relate to some parts of it.
Overall I'd highly recommend it - we've found it really useful and referred to it a good few times as we've started our BLW journey!

I am sorry that my review will be on the negative side compared to the other reviewers but in my opinion this book is oversimplifying the weaning process. The author makes it sound so simple and straightforward and in our case this was a bit misleading and created the wrong expectations. I am a proponent of the baby-led weaning method in general, I really find it logical and natural but as you can expect things don't always go smooth with every baby. The book recommends starting from six months and emphasizes on offering as greater variety of foods as possible as long as they are healthy foods. And these are the points I don't agree with, without being an expert, just a parent of a baby that has a very sensitive tummy. First. I don't think looking at the calendar is the best guiding point for when to start the weaning process - in the book the author shares her excitement about her daughter turning 6 months meaning she can start solids - why would a baby be more or less ready to start solids when 5 months and 29 days old as opposed to 6 months old - how would one day makes such a considerable difference in the child's development. I am familiar with the current WHO recommendations etc but those are general guidelines and every baby is so individual. I am sure that if they are ready you could start a few weeks earlier or if they are not you could (and will probably have to) wait a few more weeks (or months) - the main thing is to look for the green light from your baby and not from the calendar. This is what makes sense to me anyways.Read more ›
