DescriptionContrary 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.

Reviews for Baby-led Weaning
This will change the way you think about eating...
Gill provides a huge amount of information to support why baby led weaning is a natural and preferable way to feed your baby. Her statements are supported by evidence, including her own research. This book is great for people who trust their babies ability to experiment with food, self regulate intake (therefore no overeating) and learn at their own pace. Highly recommended!!! Although originally developed with breast fed babies, this book suggests that all babies can benefit from self feeding. by Victoria Gibson
