By emma who reads a lot TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 27 Aug. 2010
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.

This is a great book. Loads of recipe ideas, starting with a selection of different purées to start your little one on, and eventually moving on to more substantial dinners for when they're a little bit older. There's plenty of advice on when and how to move them from one stage to another, and when to start them on finger food. Perfect for the parent who wants to ensure their baby gets decent home cooked food from the moment they start to eat. It even made this dad try a new food for the first time (papaya!)

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.

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 ;)

This book is great to get you straight to what you need to know about weaning. It also has some great recipes, things you wouldn't necessarily think to puree together for yourself. It is a great starter book for new parents.

Good explanations, very informative and have referred back to this a lot. I'm sure I will continue to do so. Would have liked a few more ideas for recipes/instructions for the stage 1 section.

Fantastic if you are like me and become overwhelmed with the amount of advice and guidelines out there, it has everything in one easy to read guide with lots of little facts and great puree recipes - also has a small section on baby led weaning but its mostly aimed at spoon feeding and the like.

Great all rounder but not an essential buy as most of the information can be found with a quick google search or going to annabel karmels webpage!

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.
