Overview
Forget baby purees and spoon-feeding--there's an easier, more natural way to introduce your little one to solid foods. By about six months, when babies can sit up unassisted, grab things, and "munch" on them, they are ready to join the family at the kitchen table and discover food for themselves.

Now, in The Baby-Led Weaning Family Cookbook, Gill Rapley and Tracey Murkett--the champions of the modern BLW movement--update their guidelines on baby-led weaning, recap its many benefits, and offer parents 100 all-new recipes that will feed the whole family--including their little one. Baby-led weaning is:

Good for Baby's development and lifelong health: By exploring food at their own pace (while continuing to nurse for nutrition as long as needed), babies will learn to love a healthy variety of foods and to gauge fullness--all while building motor skills and independence. BLW is a great first step to avoid picky eating, or overeating, later on

More convenient for parents: BLW avoids the fuss and expense of purees, and lets parents cook just one meal for the whole family. Gill and Tracey's easy recipes avoid bad-for-baby ingredients (such as excess salt) and include serving suggestions (e.g., let Baby pick out the soft carrots and potatoes from soup). Plus, they include tips on cooking in batches, freezing meals for later, and taking snacks on the go.

Just as safe as spoon-feeding: In September 2016, the official journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics republished a study out of New Zealand that found BLW does not increase the risk of choking. As Gill and Tracey explain, six-month-olds have reflexes to prevent this--and parents can minimize the risk by choosing the rights foods to start.

The first book in this bestselling series with color photos throughout, The Baby-Led Weaning Family Cookbook is an essential companion to BLW--and a testament to the joy of eating together as a family.
