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.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The baby-led weaning vs spoon feeding debate is dealt with here in a really well-written, balanced account that favours an inclusive rather than either/or approach. Conway's accessible book evaluates both approaches in terms of dietary impact, but also looks at developmental and social factors. For instance, the practical effect of having a child who is used to BOTH finger food and purees is that your child is happy to eat a proper, cooked meal at home - but will happily eat a sandwich when you're out (more manageable than having to worry about heating up a casserole!).

Although there is a lot of information, it is presented in a very readable format that includes a variety of practical tips and recipes. I received my first copy as a review item, but have willingly paid for copies since.

Highly recommended.

Really like this book - it is practical, well thought out and has both detail and easy to read tables and the like for a helpful guide to weaning. While both BLW and traditional approaches are addressed, the food planners definitely focus more on traditional purees - worked for us but not the book if you think you are heading more towards BLW. Good finger food ideas though for second stage of weaning, and some nice recipe ideas. I really liked the meal planner guide in particular for helpful, clear guidance (which also give guidance based on what age you plan to start weaning, which I haven't found in other books).

There are too many noises about BLW which comes from mainly personal experiences. This book gives a balanced view on BLW and traditional methods. One should read this if considering BLW.

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.

I thought I was going to find in this book valuable guidelines for the introduction of solids, but I didn't. The author doesn't give her opinion about the options. And it is not suitable at all for breastfeeding on demand weaning. My baby has cow's milk intolerance so I cannot eat milk, cheese, etc. and when this issue is mentioned in the book it is mixed with lactose intolerance with a lot of inaccuracies which can confuse the reader.
It is much better to check the World Health Association Website. It is free and clear.
