Baby-led weaning: the essential guide to introducing solid foods and helping your baby to grow up a happy and confident eater by Gill Rapley and Tracey.
Purees and "babyfood" is such a part of what I considered conventional wisdom about parenting that I was hesitant, even after reading this book. However, what the book was saying made a lot of sense, so I took a leap of faith and decided to give it a try before attempting spoon feeding My son is loving exploring foods and is developing a healthy appetite - so far he loves broccoli, tomatoes, avocado and squash.
It's also nice that I can adapt any meal we're having so that he eats what we're eating - it makes planning his meals much easier.
I recommend this book - read it and then give it a try!
You will be shocked by how much your baby innately knows about food. But be patient, for the first week or two your baby may not actually swallow anyfood - but he will eventually. When my son was getting close to starting solids, I sought out this concept - basically exclusive breastfeeding until 6 months, and introducing solids, as just that SOLIDS.
Baby food grosses both my husband and me out, and the thought of having my food cold, and my husband long gone from the table while I sat and spooned food down my baby's throat didn't sound appealing. This book tells you why it is OK to let babies feed themselves, from the very beginning of solid foods. They have strong jaws I mean really, have you ever had a toothless baby bite you?
No nasty baby cereal, no jarred baby food. It's SO much easier in the long run, and you will never eat a cold meal at the table alone again. Kindle Edition Verified download. This was a good overview of BLW concept Totally makes sense and will definitely be introducing solids this way to our baby.
There's nothing new about Gill Rapley's ideas, besides the name, but for parents who think feeding a baby means jars and purees, it's a good read. Before commercial baby foods and even after for most parents in most parts of the world , babies were simply offered bites off their parent's plate when they were ready to start solids.
But when most of us were babies, the recommendation became to start solids at very young ages and purees were introduced how else will you get "solid" food into a 2 week old? Now that the recommendations have returned to more realistic expectations of when babies will be ready to eat, more and more parents are realizing that their babies don't need mush - they can eat "real" food right off the bat.
If you'd like to introduce this idea to a new parent, aren't certain when or how to start feeding your baby solids, or need support for when Grandma is horrified, this is the book to download.
If you're looking for recipes for "baby" food, tables of what food to introduce at what age, or detailed lists of foods to avoid, you won't find them here. This is just a reassuring introduction to the idea of simply feeding your baby from your own healthy meals.
By the way, for American audiences, "weaning" technically begins as soon as food other than breastmilk or formula is introduced. If you're looking for a guide on weaning baby from the breast, you're looking at the wrong book!
