The Parents Guide to baby-led weaning By Jennifer House Review
Answers all the “whys” and “hows” when it comes to baby-led weaning.
Baby-led weaning means starting your baby on real table food from the start (at about 6 months old, depending on your baby) and skipping the purée stage completely. This means offering babies a selection of nutritious finger foods so they feel like they’re joining in on family meals. Baby-led weaning is especially popular with second children and beyond, because they’re so keen to mimic their older siblings.
Baby-led weaning supports a baby’s motor development skills at an earlier age and can lead to healthier eating habits and body weights. Often, finger foods are more nutritious than purées.
Jennifer addresses all the questions hesitant parents may have and provides 125 nutritious recipes that will be enjoyed by baby and the entire family.
• Tips for getting started with baby-led weaning, including signs of readiness
• Information on safe foods and progressing food sizes as your baby develops
• Strategies for dealing with food allergies
• Advice for vegetarian families
• Guidelines for modifying family meals
All the information a parent needs is right here in this indispensable how-to guide.
