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.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
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.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
My daughter is just about to embark on her first lot of 'solids', so, when I spotted this, being that I know very little about weaning, I thought yeah, why not, my other half will love it!

A little about me, I do not like books that dictate how to bring up your child. I find most of them very patronising and unbearably dictating. So, I was a little dubious about a book on weaning, I more got it for my other half who has a manual for everything.

Have to say, I was very surprised.
I haven't read every little detail or every single page as some of it is not relevant to me or my daughter. BUT, what I have read is very easy to follow, very "un-dictating" and more sympathetic to new mums who have not got a clue what they are doing.

The book itself does not assume you have made your choice between traditional weaning or baby lead weaning. I read both sections and to be fair, I think the author does put a better spin on traditional weaning and doesn't appear to be too impressed with baby lead weaning which is fair enough and is her opinion. That would be my only criticism really, she does not give as fairer write up of it but even then it is only as a critical reader that I noticed this.

Overall, I would say this book is extremely helpful, not as dictating as books I have read previously and does not assume you know everything. A very helpfull addition to a clueless mothers' shelf!

Great as an informative read on how to wean a baby, though my little girl didn't like any of the recipes in the book and I found it a a bit critical of mums who don't wean babies at 4 months.

Covered all the basics and had good information on nutrition. Also had good guidelines on how much of each food group to aim to give a baby each day. I did feel that it implied that it was too late to start weaning at 6 months, though my little girl wasn't interested in food until just before she turned 6 months. The recipes from the later weaning stages were a bit bland, especially when other books I had were recommending introducing herbs and garlic into recipes for baby.

This book is a fantastic resource for those embarking on the process of baby weaning. It is very well written, and reflect the author's obvious experience and qualifications on the subject. The information is presented in a very clear way and is evidence based, which should help parents make their own decisions with confidence. Without this book I would have felt very baffled about the schools of thought on baby-led weaning and traditional feeding. This book provides invaluable guidance on the subject and also enables parents to be creative and flexible, depending on what suits their own children.

The chapters follow a very logical order, beginning with explanations, advantages and disadvantages of both feeding methods, followed by weaning advice for a baby as it progresses with age. The recipe and menu suggestions included are extremely sensible and imaginative at the same time. The remaining chapters tackle other issues such as fussy eaters, vegetarian babies, allergies and strategies for other dietary problems.

I am very pleased (and relieved!) that I read this book before weaning my baby - I'm sure it is going to help make weaning and eating in general become enjoyable rather than stressful.
