There's no right way to be a parent.
Your baby is unique, just like you, and this means that what works for one child might not work for another. The key lies in finding a balanced approach that encourages healthy eating.
For many parents, baby-led weaning is the answer, but how can you make this method work for you without taking up hours of your day?
With this easy-to-follow guide, you'll take the guesswork out of the weaning process. Rather than trying to follow strict rules that are unrealistic for the modern parent, you'll discover how to simplify and streamline the weaning process for you and your baby.
Many parents fret over the transition to purees and solid foods—they worry about choosing the right types of foods, serving healthy meals, and above all, preparing foods correctly to reduce the risk of choking.

That's what I love about this book and its author. The responsibility and manner in which we feed our children is of primordial importance, yet we often just the tick the box without administering the proper nutrition and guidance to them. In this case, you'll walk away feeling enabled, empowered, and not overwhelmed by the stress or burden of a chore. Rather, you'll be creating a healthy method of viewing and eating food in its true majestic form.
The baby-led weaning method in this book is a well researched guide that has easy recipes and meal plans that have been approved by a Board Certified Specialist in Pediatric Nutrition, to ensure the baby receives proper nutrients at each stage. The book answers many questions parents have as they follow their baby’s developing skills to determine what they’re ready to eat, with flexibility and independence through self-feeding. There are many more tips, such as how to deal with gagging or choking, and introducing potentially allergy inducing foods. There are also web links for updated information and help.
We would highly recommend this book, especially for first-time parents as it saves the guesswork from the start. Just following the process lessons the initial anxiety of how to start and when to take the next step. What a time saver for busy parents, too!
Extremely easy to read and not overwhelming. This is the first weaning book that gave me the confidence and knowledge to give BLW a try. It is broken up into sections and very easy to follow if you are new to weaning or already have some experience. I constantly reference it anytime I need inspiration or hit a snag. The book is full of research and the author explains everything in terms I actually understand. It is rare to find a BLW weaning book that covers every aspect of weaning, including allergies, choking, nutritional guidance, preparation tips for busy parents, and how to improve spoon-feeding. My favorite part was the extensive lists of foods to offer broken down by age. You will be guided step by step on how to offer a BLW weaning meal from beginning to end. If you have been struggling with weaning or are super nervous about getting started, this book will ease your nerves. Every parent needs to read this. I only wish I read it sooner.

This book was a fantastic read, a real page turner and helped me to prepare so we could start the weaning process in a calm, safe & relaxed way. I like how the book shows how you can combine the concepts of baby led weaning & spoon feeding. Last night we started the weaning journey with my daughter and it went really well. I know that going forward I will be referring to this book for tips and tricks as we progress through the weaning journey.
