Review quote

"[Baby-led weaning] makes life so much easier" * The Times * "I see many happy children, who choose their own food independently and eat at their own pace" * Stefan Kleintjes, paediatric dietician * "the benefits are great" * Independent * "It sounds like common sense: after all, would you want to be strapped into a high chair and force-fed spoon after spoon of bland vegetables? It's surely much more exciting to be able to exercise a bit of control over your diet" * Guardian * "[Baby-led weaning] could radically simplify infant feeding" * Telegraph *

Our customer reviews

We bought this book shortly before our daughter turned 6 months old, and we're still using it, 18 months on. The book is very well written, can be depended on for tasty, inventive dishes, using every day ingredients, and it includes detailed instructions for both the cook and on how to carry out baby led weaning. Cannot recommend this book any less - 5 out of 5. PS Baby led weaning is honestly the only way to go!show more
