    DescriptionThe Natural, No-Fuss, No-Puree Method for Starting Your Baby on Solid Foods"Baby-Led Weaning" explodes the myth that babies need to be spoon-fed and shows why self-feeding from the start of the weaning process is the healthiest way for your child to develop. With baby-led weaning (BLW, for short), you can skip purees and make the transition to solid food by following your baby's cues.At about six months, most babies are ready to join the family at the kitchen table and discover food for themselves. "Baby-Led Weaning" is the definitive guide to this crucial period in your child's development, and shows you how to help your baby: Participate in family meals right from the startExperiment with food at his or her own paceDevelop new abilities, including hand-eye coordination and chewingLearn to love a variety of foods and to enjoy mealtimesBaby-led weaning became a parenting phenomenon in the UK practically overnight, inspiring a fast-growing and now international online community of parents who practice baby-led weaning--with blogs and pictures to prove it! In "Baby-Led Weaning, " world-leading BLW authority Gill Rapley and early BLW practitioner and coauthor Tracey Murkett deliver everything you need to know about raising healthy, confident eaters.

    Review quote
    "I've been telling mothers for years that when babies start grabbing food from the table, they are ready for solids. I had the pleasure of observing this with my own children.

We can tell she is learning through all of her senses about how various substances respond to being crumbled or dropped or
