Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Baby-led Weaning Cookbook: Over 130 delicious recipes for the whole family to enjoy (Hardcover)
We bought this as a follow on from the 'Baby Led Weaning' book as we are currently doing BLW with our 6 month old daughter. This recipe book is fantastic and is already very well used!
I love the way that the book is divided into sections such as 'breakfasts', 'light lunches', 'salads', 'soups', 'mains - poultry' etc. It makes it very easy to find a recipe that will be appropriate and the recipes are all very simple and quick - perfect when you have a young baby on your hands at the same time!
At first I didn't think this book would be necessary - afterall the whole point of BLW is that baby can eat the same as you, right? However it can be hard at times to think of interesting, varied meals (we all cook the same 5 or 6 recipes over and over, don't we?) and this is really useful for ideas like how to get flavour without adding salt and how to prepare quick, non-messy breakfasts and how to make desserts healthy and nutritious.
There's also some really good general info on BLW, nutrition and the technical side of cooking (weights and measures etc) at the beginning.
Overall totally worth the money and a book I know I will use time and time again!

Would you recommend just buying this recipe book or is it a necessity to buy both this and the BLW one too?

I think this book alone would be perfectly sufficient for anyone who just wants an overview of the theory behind baby led weaning alongside recipe ideas. If you want a more in depth look at baby led weaning then the main baby led weaning book would be worth reading but I don't think it's a necessity :)
