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.

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 cannot recommend this book enough. I was starting to get really anxious about the weaning process as I was being given different advice from health visitors, parents, in-laws and friends, and was in a complete muddle. I sat and read this book which clearly sets out the different approaches to weaning, i.e. traditional and baby led, and felt much clearer.

The book also includes recipes, ideas for feeding schedules through the day (when milk feeds should be replaced with snacks), and advice for feeding when your baby moves into being a toddler. There's also a section for helping fussy eaters and those with allergies.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
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.

Excellent book. I love how it provides details of both traditional and baby led weaning and then a method for combining both. Easy to read and follow. Very interesting and helpful. Best baby weaning book I've read so far. I have chosen the balanced approach and feel more relaxed and flexible as a result of reading this book. Good clear instructions for cooking batches of fruit and veg and nice recipes for all the family too. I would highly recommend.

My wife bought this book to assist in the weaning of our daughter. My wife does not cook but this book has her in the kitchen prepping tasty food for our daughter everyday. Our daughter loves the food and the books tips, techniques and recipes made us feel more confident about the whole weaning process. Great buy and a regular read for my wife.

An excellent book that provides a clear and relatively unbiased overview of both traditional and baby-led weaning. It includes information on the health benefits of each and the evidence of their impact on child health which is helpful for anyone undecided as to what method of weaning suits them best. The recipes included are appropriate and easy to follow. I particularly like the clear tables identifying which foods are appropriate for a child at each age and the number of milk feeds a child requires at each stage. I have already referred back to this several times and have no doubt that it will continue to be my go-to reference book throughout the weaning process. I would definitely recommend this!

This book has been my bible through the weaning process, split into chapters for easy reading had some recipes to help. I love the fact that instead of saying 'this is when you wean.......just because' it explains why the guidelines say 6 months. The book explains how to wean from 4 months if that is what you choose to do.
