    I try to keep up with my daughter s reading about child rearing, since it gives me an understanding of her approach to raising her baby, my precious granddaughter I am so glad I read this book When my daughter started introducing finger foods to her six month old, and I saw the little one gag , I was horrified and thought she was about to choke I was used to babies having pureed foods and had a hard time understan

    This isn t bad, although far too anecdote focused for my taste and oddly defensively repetitious about not needing to be concerned if your baby isn t chubby that focusing on that is somehow old fashioned and raises the spectre of obesity which is just plain odd One of the interesting things about baby books is the crazy insistence on One Right Way and a weird distortion of facts to ensure that parents don t make the

    I definitely plan to use this method to introduce solids However, the book itself was not muchuseful then the website The authors repeated themselves a lot I think they were trying to find a way to fill up a whole book but failed at that But redundancy aside, this book did raise my confidence in trying this with my daughter I liked the explanations about the gag reflex as well as as their logic for things like if they a

    I loved this book so much I read through the entire thing in a day We had already decided to do BLW before we bought this book, so we required very little convincing Still, this book presented some of the research done on BLW and contained TONS of personal anecdotes by BLW parents, all of which really solidified our resolve to take this approach with our son I really enjoyed the relaxed approach to solids advocated by this

    I hate when common sense parenting methods get labelled with a phrase and we all begin referring to it by the term e.g Did you BLW.Baby led weaning is very simply letting your child wean themselves naturally You don t give them special foods, you don t buy or make fancy purees, and there is no need for any toddler food recipe books.You cook the family dinner, you serve it up and you all eat I used this method and it works.The

    A great guide to BLW I wish it wassynthesized Some things were repeated at least 10 times I missed some specifics as to what foods are a good idea to introduce first and how many foods to offer at once.

  7. says:

    I think the intention of this book was good, but the writing was terrible The author simply repeats herself over and over again in order to draw out her thoughts into a full book She could have simply stated the facts and made it into almost a pamphlet size read I also feel there should be a bitof a warning in here about foods such as apples, beans, and roughage My child did not do well with said items and ended up in the ER twice

  8. says:

    Meh.I liked a lot of the ideas in this book feed a baby what adults are eating, let them decide when to feed themselves, let them choose from several options at mealtimes The ideas behind these things were to raise a child who was not picky and was confident.Well, the problem with the book is that it is not based on any sort of science It s completely anecdotal and frankly some of the anecdotes seem kind of forced There s no evidence

    Leave it to me to think I need to read a book about introducing solids to my THIRD child It s not like I haven t done this before But with my first two, it was frustrating, stressful, and many times not fun I m hoping to change all of that this go around.While I liked the subject and totally agree with the premise, the execution was highly repetitive how many times can you say trust your baby and let him eat as his own pace and aggravati

    This is one of themilitant parenting books I ve read There is no grey area or allowance for any horrible pur es to touch your precious baby s lips Given that the authors speak with such authority, and condemn most other feeding guidelines, I was surprised that they didn t include any in text citations, and only had 9 references one from 1928 Seriously There is also inaccurate information about introducing allergens There are some interestin
