***** – A common sense approach

December 15th, 2008

By Gem “Purgula”

I am just starting to wean my daughter who is 5 & 1/2 months old. I was unsure about weaning, until I found this book; it gives great advice and is all you will need for a raft of information. It doesn’t give recipes like some other weaning books but it doesn’t need to because your baby doesn’t need ‘Special’ foods.

Save yourself some money this is the only book on weaning you will need.

It is reassurance for anyone who is unsure about following a practice that is in reality the most natural and positive approach to weaning.

Seen on Amazon – Really helpful, and a quick read for busy parents

December 3rd, 2008

I read this when my 2nd child was 6 months and about to start food. With my first child I followed all the puree rules, and consequently he is a terrible eater at 3 years old. Baby led weaning is a much better approach in my opinion. Plus its really really easy. Takes all the pressure off. Weaning is actually fun this time round. Read this if you are about to wean your baby on to food. It makes a very sensible case!

Seen on Amazon – BLW Just go for it…this book will give you your confidence

December 2nd, 2008

Alison Orbell “Ali O”

We have been following the BLW principles before this book came to press but I eagerly awaited its publishing and bought it the first week. It did not dissappoint. I read the book cover to cover in 24 hours it was such an interesting and easy read so even if you are not thinking of BLW I would suggest reading it.

It puts all of the current and recent weaning practices (most of which can be happily ignored) into context so that you can explain to parents, health visitors, random advice wishers that you know what you are doing and that actually it is a healthy and sensible and more than safe approach.

I loved the pictures in the book as they made me smile that we are not the only ones going down this route and it gave me confidence to try some of the not so obviously baby friendly meals like Spag bol and stew.

The brilliant thing about BLW is that it can be so easy and fun. All you really need is a shower curtain or wipe clean floor and some nutritious food! No food processers, no fancy little pots or insulated this and that and also no worries that you have missed meal time because meal time is just when you eat.

Ok it is not rocky science and mums have been weaning like this for years…at least mums of very lucky children have , but I am so glad there is a book to give those of us who just need a little convincing we are right or need some explanations to justify our gut feel.

Read this and help your child and family enjoy their food.
