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
Contrary to popular belief, there is no research that supports the current mainstream view that babies should be weaned by being spoon-fed purees. Self-feeding allows babies to use their natural abilities to explore taste, texture, color and smell. It encourages independence and confidence by allowing them to experiment with foods at their own pace and helps to develop hand-eye coordination and chewing."Baby-led Weaning" is a practical and authoritative guide to introducing solid food, enabling your child to grow up a happy and confident eater. It shows parents why baby-led weaning makes sense and gives them the confidence to trust their baby's natural skills and instincts. With practical tips for getting started and the low-down on what to expect, "Baby-led Weaning" explodes the myth that babies need to be spoon-fed and shows why self-feeding from the start is the healthiest way for your child to develop. Your baby is allowed to decide how much he wants to eat, how to eat it and to experiment with everything at his own pace. Baby-led weaning is a common-sense, safe, easy and enjoyable approach to feeding your baby. No more purees and weaning spoons, and no more mealtime battles.Simply let your baby feed himself healthy family food. See all Product description

I now have a two year old who is always ready to try something new, but also knows what he likes best (which changes from time to time).
I love the way of thinking that babies know what is best for them......I do believe that it is however super important that if one chooses baby-led weaning it is very important to think a lot about what you are eating..especially (in our case anyway) with sugar. We avoided refined sugar the whole first year but it has been getting harder and harder to avoid...if we're eating it he's going to want to try it...and he loves things with refined sugar...and gets very upset when there is no more, in a way I have not seen with other types of food!
This book also brought me more freedom as i was able to relax and enjoy my hot meals - no more cold dinners! Mother and baby very happy.
I'm grateful for this book to this day - 7 years later - and would recommend it to anybody who doesn't have patience for spoon feeding, who likes to eat their dinner warm and whose baby is determined to grab solid food from family plates.
