Baby-Led Weaning Book Review

Monday, December 6, 2010

I just completed reading Baby-Led Weaning by Gill Rapley and Tracey Murkett. It is a fantastic information guide for new parents, as well as those seeking a more natural way of transferring from bottle/breast to solid foods.

I enjoyed the book very much as I am thoroughly irritated by parents who make timed changes to their child's food and meals even if it negatively affects the child.

This book helps to eliminate the stress of the rigorous and confusing mess the above method can cause.

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 Murkett.

Baby-Led Weaning is the definitive guide for parents who want to skip purées and begin self-feeding from the start of the weaning process. Originally published in early 2009 in the UK, Baby-Led Weaning already garnered legions of advocates and practitioners. It is written by Gill Rapley, a public health nurse for 20 years and the mother of three who originated the theory of baby-led weaning while pursuing her master’s degree, and journalist Tracey Murkett, who followed baby-led weaning with her own daughter.

With Baby-Led Weaning, young eaters will be able to participate in family meals from the start, experiment with food, develop hand-eye coordination and chewing, and learn to love a variety of foods. By following their baby’s cues, parents will encourage natural development in their child and raise healthy, confident eaters.

We think Baby-Led Weaning would be a perfect fit with the other content on your site, and a useful tool for any of your readers who are interested in learning more about the baby-led weaning method.

If you are interested in more "natural" feeding methods, you will probably enjoy the information provided by Rapley and Murkett.
