Format: Hardcover
Annabel Karmel is the Queen of Baby Eating, and this is just the latest in a steady stream of publications by her on the subject. However this book is very much focused on weaning, so just up to 12 months, and about specific worries you might have to do with that early period. She has also published other books which recommend both baby and toddler eating plans, and if money is tight you might want to order one of them instead.

The first 25 pages are detailed general advice on how to introduce new foods, understanding truths and myths, and in particular addressing special diets, a bit of advice for vegetarians and allergy issues. Then the rest of the book is divided into three sections: Stage one, up to six months; Stage two, six to nine months; and Stage three, 10 to 12 months.

Stage one has lots of information on preparing foods, what first foods should be, the specialness of the very first spoonful and how you should feed the baby. There are then about ten recipes as well as a number of purée suggestions.

Stage two has the most information: this is the section for a baby who has begun to eat quite well, and there are many different purée recipes such as Pumpkin and Pea, or Salmon and Corn Chowder. Also puddings, bringing the number of recipes in this section to about 25. These are proper recipes, which will take a little time to prepare, but there's also lots of advice about freezing and how to do all this relatively sensibly so you don't spend your whole life cooking tiny meals.

Weaned my child using this book - he is now too old for this book so I can fully review it as I've used it from start to finish. And I think it's absolutely brilliant.

I was in two minds whether to choose this book or to go for the baby led weaning system which is fashionable at the moment. I started using this intending to more on to BLW later but I didn't as I found the recipes in this book worked so well I didn't want to change to BLW.

Primarily this was because it was fun. The recipes are very easy to cook and take max 20 minutes but usually much less. And Annabel Karmel knows what babies like and it was a real joy introducing him to such a wide variety of food and flavours, from the very first spoonfuls you're offered a wide variety of choice to feed your baby. In addition the food in this book is packed with fruit and veg and moves on to quite complex flavours fairly quickly.

The variety of food won out over BLW for me - he really introduced to such a cross section of food and so many different flavours that I didn't want to change. I felt BLW would exclude too many foods and wouldn't introduce him to so many flavours as there is a temptation to stick to easy finger foods and exclude things that may be to messy. Also if you're giving him things on a spoon he is introduced to things which he perhaps may not pick out himself on a plate and therefore this method seems to introduce your child to a far wider range of flavours.

He is now a toddler and will eat anything and is particularly fond of fruit and veg, and also very adventurous and likes to try new things. He's very into garlic, Turkish and Mediterranean food and I credit this with the early way he was introduced to food using the methods in this book.

I would recommend this book to anybody, it was so enjoyable to use and had such great results.

Being a first time mum, I like to get the basics of every situation without being bombarded with too much information and this book provided me with all the necessary answers I needed for weaning. The recipes are easy and varied and the menu planners makes the process of weaning easier by showing how and when to introduce foods. I would not hesitate to recommend this book to all mums at this important stage.

As all new mums know, you want to do the best for your little one. I struggled with breast feeding so when it came to weaning I wanted to know I was doing the right thing, giving the right foods and ensuring my little boy was getting what he needed in terms of a balanced diet. This book put my mind at ease with a good section explaining the weaning process and giving you a good idea of when to start etc. I do feel the equipment section is a little over the top... I don't find the meals difficult to make and I just have a mini blender and a steamer. I like the variety in the ingredients too so I know my little boy is experiencing different tastes.

I would recommend this book and have done to my mummy friends. I might well get her 100 purees book to get even more variety.

I found this book really useful when it came to starting weaning - you don't have to follow it to the letter but it gives good guidelines for what to cook and when. She also identifies with those who start the weaning process at 4 months. Easy to understand with step by step instructions and some lovely pics ;)

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I bought this book as it seems to be the weaning book everybody uses. The book is fine-it gives you weaning advice & recipes but if you were to actually follow the book you would need a massive freezer & around 30 different pureed dishes/vegetables for the first 2 weeks alone. I've made all of the first tastes, beef stew, fish dish, chicken dish, a few mixed veg dishes & fruit desserts and I have spent hours & hours in the kitchen steaming, mixing, putting into ice cube trays, popping the food into bags, labelling the bags & stuffing them into my bulging freezer. It's such a time consuming book. It's good for ideas but I'm going to try & use my common sense & adapt adult recipes so I'm only cooking one meal.
