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.

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.

From deciding to wean at 6 months and sticking to paediatrician vs dietician advice to wean from 5 months (which he will be in three days), we, well, HE, decided today is the day!!!!!

I have been offering him everything I eat and safely to offer for a week now, he never opened his mouth to any. I wanted everything to be easy without me running out of time and panicking that he's still not eating, given that he is 6 weeks early I wasn't sure which advice to stick to (paediatrician or dietician)? After reading the first chapter and the one on premature baby's of Rana Conway's book, I knew exactly what I wanted to do.
She explained that premature baby while they need more nutrients as they are low on reserve, their organs also mature faster than if they were on the womb, so their organs do catch up with full terms. Then to my surprise she quoted a study where preterms were weaned either (early 3 months), or on time. The early weaning group also had nutrient dense diet as veg and fruit alone can fill them with lower calories.

Armed with evidence (although I haven't checked the strength of the study), I was happy to follow his dietician advice, after all she is more specialised on the subject.
We are having some of his relatives staying with us next week, so I thought I'll start when they leave. .

Meantime I continued offering food to his mouth. Today was a piece of bread and then carrot, he didn't open his mouth to either, so they went into mummy's tummy.
Then after a reading breaks rom this book I had a nectarine. Offered the soft side after I bit it, and he sucked on it. ! He then started to really enjoy it with all these num num voices he was making! It was so unreal!

I read this book when I was initially thinking about weaning, and then bought more detailed books about my chosen approach once I had read the comparisons in here. It clearly lays out the pros/cons of different methods but doesn't give enough specific guidance to allow an anxious mother like me to feel reassured about embarking on weaning in the correct way. I would recommend this if you are a little way off starting weaning, to allow time to read other books too.

I did a lot of looking to find a book on weaning I thought would be right for our son. He's 18w and I felt he was ready to begin slow weaning (he was demonstrating signs such as sitting well when supported, sitting without support for moments of time, showing interest in our food, and indeed took food off my dinner plate one evening to put in his mouth). I know the current advice for weaning is 6m but judging by recent studies and looking at previous literature I believe this advice is going to change back to 4-6m.

I was put off books like Annabel C and Gina F, the former for apparently adding sugar/salt to recepies, and the latter for a reputation of being very strict with routine. Other books focus soley on weaning at 6m, or either propose baby-led or puree style. However, this book looks at both options, great for me as I'm a first-time mum and don't know much about either. The book is evidence-based, easy to read, and well laid out. I feel much more knowledgeable and much more confident in my decision to wean. I really enjoyed reading this, the advice is very sensible, and I can't recommend it highly enough. I'm sure we're going to make a lot of use of this book.
