Baby-Led Weaning: The Essential Guide to Introducing Solid Foods-And Helping Your Baby to Grow Up a Happy and Confident Eaterby Gill Rapley
Synopses & Reviews
The Natural, No-Fuss, No-Purée 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 purées 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:
Baby-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.
Baby-Led Weaning explodes the myth that babies need to be spoon-fed and shows why self-feeding is the healthiest way for a child to develop. The authors show how this commonsense, easy, and enjoyable approach to feeding children helps to develop a babys natural abilities, including handeye coordination and chewing, and allows a baby to join in with family meals right from the start of the weaning process. It also encourages independence by allowing a baby to experiment with foods at his or her own pace and makes mealtimes more enjoyable and battles less likely. Baby-Led Weaning is a practical and authoritative guide to an innovative and exciting new method for introducing solid food, one that enables a child to grow up a happy and confident eater.
