I'm really excited that 'My pregnancy recipes and meal planner' is about to be published. Every recipe in it has been tested by a real mum or mum-to-be and by their partners and friends. With their help I've managed to bring together a collection of dishes that meet all the needs of growing babies but also satisfy the taste buds of pregnant women and anyone they might be eating with.

If you are looking for a weaning book that is written by a self-styled celebrity cook, which strongly pushes a particular weaning method and disregards all others, and focuses on weird combinations of food that the rest of the family would not dream of eating..... then this book is NOT for you!!!

I cannot rate this book highly enough. I was looking for a book about weaning that explained traditional (puree-based) and baby-led weaning so that I could choose the best way to wean my first child (now seven months). This book starts off by explaining both methods, the research behind them and the pros and cons of each (for example, that research clearly shows that using BLW alone can cause nutritional deficiencies or that puree-based weaning alone can lead to a lack of independence at meal times). It goes on to suggest how the two methods can be successfully combined in order to overcome the disadvantages of each method. The book is written by a qualified nutritionist with over 18 years of experience, who has established herself as an expert in nutrition for pregnancy and childhood, and has carried out nutrition research at leading universities. She also has three children. It's your choice, but I felt much more comfortable following advice from someone with these credentials, who backs up all her suggestions with proof from controlled scientific studies, rather than someone like Annabel Karmel who is a bit of a celebrity but has no actual nutrition qualifications as far as I can find out. Also, this book has only just been published and so the research quoted is recent and relevant.

This is a great little book, written by a professional with good credentials. It can be difficult to know what to do when the world and his wife is trying to tell you what they did with their little precious bundle of joy. This book hopes to solve the confusing mass of mixed messages received by already overwhelmed new or prospective parents.

Well written, with good advice from a trusted source. Recommended.

I decided to read this as my 3rd baby was just coming up to 6 months and getting ready to wean him, my older 2 were just weaned with purees but a lot of people are recommending baby led weaning these days. This book recommends a middle path of using both of those methods, which is just a 'common sense' method really but it does have a lot of information in it covering so many topics about weaning, and also includes meal plans for babies and toddlers so it is worth reading to pick up a few ideas. At first when I started reading the first 2 chapters I did feel a bit like the author was quite negative towards baby led weaning (as in, those who do baby led weaning strictly by itself with no purees or spoon feeding at all) but I felt the book got better and more balanced as I got further on with it. I will probably go back to it in future to check any information or get food ideas, so overall it is quite good. And in the end I will be going for the mixed weaning method with my baby, as mentioned in the book.

We'd rate this book as probably the best of its kind, having looked closely at many. We found it comprehensive and felt it inspired confidence that the author really knew her subject. It is eminently readable, with chapters for different age ranges, and advice offered is sensible and practical. Rather than being prescriptive, the book offers guidance to help readers come to their own conclusions on the approach that's right for them. Recipes incorporate a wide range of foods and flavours, making it easy to offer a balanced diet. The section dealing with problems such as fussy eating and allergies will be invaluable to many.

This is a first-rate book that we are delighted to own.

This is a very balanced book which most parents will find reassuring, as it looks at both traditional and baby-led weaning methods and explains how to combine them in a way which works for you. After reading many blogs and websites which do their best to make this issue another parenting battlefield (saying that baby-led weaning is always a choking hazard or that traditional weaning is nothing more than force-feeding your child), this book was a breath of fresh air.

However, I wouldn't suggest buying it on Kindle as I did, because the charts and meal plans aren't optimised on Kindle. Next time I would buy this in paperback. But still, highly recommended.

If you aren't too knowledgeable about the different methods of weaning then this is a great read; it gives clear explanations and arguments for and against.
A little biased, in my opinion but what isn't these days! However I didn't finish it as I decided half way through that a balanced approach would be most sensible and moved on to Annabel Karmel for a little more 'how to' than theory! It is quite satisfying to understand what baby led weaning really means - I feel ever so slightly smug each time I hear a lady proudly telling anyone who will listen that she is doing this with her little one - as she spoon feds him / her a yogurt!
