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.

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? )
My wife and I read this book having gone through the initial stages of weaning (getting a baby from a milk-only diet onto solids) with our daughter. We chose to do primarily baby-led weaning with a little of the pureed food (traditional weaning) included. So our little girl will eat things like chicken strips, sliced red peppers, cucumber, apple, fish, but also enjoys some fruit purees.

I mention what we chose to do as this book seems to cover our choice pretty much exactly. The book divides nicely into thirds: firstly, the different options (baby-led and traditional) are described and a chapter called "The balanced approach" basically says use your own judgment for what suits your baby and you best of all. Next, the four stages of weaning (up to 6 months, 7-9 months, 9-12 months and beyond) are described with useful tips of what to expect and what to do with lots of useful recipes. The third section covers everything else: allergies, premature babies etc.

There's two things particularly to like about this book - firstly, it's not overly instructive telling you what to do trying to make you feel guilty if you don't follow the instructions to the letter. Instead, it presents a serious subject in a grown-up way explaining the current medical thought on the various guidelines and letting you choose what works best. Secondly, it's exactly what we actually did so from that perspective it's nice to find a book with justifies our balanced approach

Definitely recommended for first-time parents and anyone wanting to consider their baby's diet in more detail.
