Product Description

Review

"[Baby-led weaning] makes life so much easier" (The Times)

"I see many happy children, who choose their own food independently and eat at their own pace" (Stefan Kleintjes, paediatric dietician)

"the benefits are great" (Independent)

"It sounds like common sense: after all, would you want to be strapped into a high chair and force-fed spoon after spoon of bland vegetables? It's surely much more exciting to be able to exercise a bit of control over your diet" (Guardian)

"[Baby-led weaning] could radically simplify infant feeding" (Telegraph)

Book Description

An illustrated cookbook full of simple and delicious baby-led weaning recipes to share with the whole family, from the authors of Baby-led Weaning

Some good ones in here: we do the drop scones often for breakfast, and the dahl... others (eg the tuna croquettes) need a bit of tweaking otherwise rather dry... Functional feeling book - not exactly a joy to delve into, but gives you ideas at least. Someone has since told me about a website called Little Grazers, which I tend to find more appealing.

I'm somewhere between 3 and 4 stars for this book. It's great to have some recipes spelled out for you as being entirely appropriate nutritionally for your baby from the get go as I think that was one of the things that I was concerned about. I do find that the recipes are reasonably bland (which was to be expected), but in some cases this actually made the meals rather unpleasant for us adults (the saag paneer was a watery spinachy mess, and as someone who usually really enjoys this dish, I found this version virtually inedible). On the plus side, some of the other recipes were delicious, and I like that the recipes generally specified that they would feed 2 adults and 1 baby, this was a nice touch.

The one thing that I really felt this book was missing was some sort of suggested meal planner, perhaps just for the first week or two. I appreciate the theory that with BLW your baby just eats what you eat, but in reality I think that some parents would like a gentle submersion into the world of weaning perhaps focusing on some of the simpler finger foods rather than diving in at the deep end immediately. I was happy to give solid foods, but a meal planner would have helped me to feel confident that baby was getting a good balance of foods, therefore removing at least one of the stresses involved in weaning, as well as enabling me to think/shop ahead. I have found that planning ahead is something that I seem to have lost the ability to do whilst looking after a 6 month old so any help in that department is appreciated!

I bought this book on recommendation as I am planning to try baby-led weaning with my baby. I know the idea is that the baby can join in with suitably adapted family meals but I was looking for inspiration on the kind of things that could work and I think this book provides it. My baby isn't eating yet but the recipes look good and I have tried the Spanish apple cake (made with olive oil rather than butter) which looked a bit strange when I made it but is actually very tasty!

Edited later: I have now made a number of meals from this cookbook and while I still agree that the ideas and inspiration are good I have found that some of the recipes don't 'work' very well and I wonder if they haven't been as thoroughly tested as recipes from other cookbooks I own. I would still buy the book but trial the recipes before making for your baby and/or use as inspiration to adapt recipes from other sources. I have lowered my rating from 4 stars to 3 stars as a consequence.

This is even better than the Baby Led Weaning Handbook as it's got the all-about-BLW introductory chapters which cover the basics, and then goes on to include all sorts of "normal" recipes which helps to reinforce how it's all just normal food that baby can have.

I'm a big fan of baby-led weaning but was a bit disappointed with the recipes in this book. They tended to be 'ok' rather than 'good' and there were some recipes that were definite misses. I ended up using the book for inspiration of the sort of thing that might work with a baby and finding better recipes for similar things elsewhere rather than using the recipes themselves. However if you are doing baby-led weaning I think the book is worth getting for the ideas alone anyway. If you are after good recipes to use for baby led weaning, I'd recommend the River Cottage Baby and Toddler Cookbook instead (and dare I say it some of the Annabel Karmel books!).

I think the book could have been better organised for the early stages of baby-led weaning when your baby will have problems holding or chewing lots of things. I found it quite hard in the early days to find recipes which would be manageable. I think it'd have been nice if there had been a special section with ideas for the first two or three months, because after that your baby can eat pretty much anything anyway and you only really need recipes that don't have too much salt, any inappropriate ingredients etc. I'd also have liked a list somewhere of the recipes in the book that are really quick to make for when you are in a rush. It'd also have been nice to see an example menu plan for a week - I know the idea of baby led weaning is that it is meant to be flexible but my sleep-deprived brain could have done with a bit more hand-holding (and I had a baby who ate with gusto right from the word go so didn't feel I could just fob him off with a few rice cakes or steamed veg!). I felt like this book, although useful, was a bit of a missed opportunity.

I should add that one nice thing about the book is that his has a nice fairly concise explanation of baby led weaning. I had read the Baby Led Weaning book so didn't really need that, but it was useful for my husband who I don't think would have read the main book.

Lovely book filled with fab BLW first finger foods and whole family recipes. My boy is only in the early stages of weaning so far, but I'm looking forward to enjoying some lovely dinners from this book.
