"[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 *

I like this concept as a concept - ie babies eating normal food from the get go, but i have two struggles with it. first, it's very messy and my laundry was already over the top. also, my baby keeps gagging and altho they explain the difference between this and choking my nerves can't handle it. it's too constant. i'll still use the recipes just more as he gets older

This is a great starter book for baby led weaning. I have cooked a few receipes from this book including the shepherds pie and macaroni cheese receipe. Both of these bub enjoyed and so did my hubby.

Definately worth the purchase!

Great cookbook to accompany the guide, it does offer some info on the basics of BLW but I was glad I'd read the guide first, as it is disconcerting watching your 6 month old gag every now and then. But the recipes are really good as they give appropriate foods for babies and small children that are still edible for adults, I love that I don't have to prepare two seperate meals for each meal time.
