More About the Author

Rana Conway is a Registered Nutritionist (Public Health) and a member of the Nutrition Society. Over the past 20 years, she has established herself as an expert in nutrition for pregnancy and childhood. She has carried out nutrition research at leading universities, and gained a PhD in 1997 for her work with pregnant women.

Rana has lectured on a wide range of undergraduate courses and taught nutrition to medical students, midwives and trainee dieticians. She now enjoys researching and writing books and magazine features and is the nutrition expert for madeformums.com.

She lives in London with her husband and their three children.

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.

My daughter works with new parents and midwives and this is her review.

I was pleased to find a book that doesn't take the approach that new parents need to be told what to do . They may be anxious about new phases they encounter, but in my experience telling most new parents what to do with their baby from an 'expert' standpoint is a waste of time.

This book addresses some of the concerns that feed a parents anxiety about the right time to introduce solids into their baby's diet and what on earth they might give them.

It clears up some of the mystery that surrounds 'baby led weaning' and helps put the current guidelines in to context so that parents can decide for themselves whether they feel the 'guidelines' are something they want to stick to rigidly or maybe perhaps they might want to make a slightly different decision as it suits their baby and the rest of the family better.

I enjoyed the tone of the book and felt it was very balanced - helping parents to take the bits of each approach as they feel might work for them.

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? )
As a former childcare professional with small babies in the family again after a break of some years, I was interested to see how ideas have moved on with regard to weaning. From the three to four months advocated twenty five years ago, six months of age is now the recommended lower age limit for solids. At six months of age, babies are confidently reaching out for objects, mouthing and chewing them.

This has given rise to baby-led weaning, giving babies hand-held foods that they feed themselves,and in this book baby led weaning is given equal prominence with the pureed food method that had been used for generations.

The pureed foods advocated are minced/pureed versions of family meals - not the jars and tins of expensive, starch-thickened products that dominated baby-rearing for so many in the past.

A useful read for all new parents - and especially for confused grandparents and carers of an older generation, who will probably appreciate that the ideas familiar to them haven't been discarded completely, but have been brought up to date.

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.
