    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 understanding that babies could eat everything their parents eat within reasonand that they

    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 wrong decision according to the expert when faced with ambiguous science This book

    I definitely plan to use this method to introduce solids However the book itself was not much useful 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 are eating enough' and 'giving the baby control of feeding and choices' So I would pr

    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 reuired 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 bookThe only reason I gave it 3 stars was because the dietary information was a little off

    I hate when common sense parenting methods get labelled with a phrase and we all begin referring to it by the term eg 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 booksYou cook the family dinner you serve it up and you all eat I used this method and it worksThe huge problem that I have with this book is the contradiction in ideals that it displays On one h

    A great guide to BLW I wish it was synthesized 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

    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 bit of 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 Ultimately this was my fault but I just don't feel that the BLW has a full grasp on the details of

    MehI 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 confidentWell 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 that feeding babies purees is in any way bad and in fact I was fed that way and I'm the most secure adven

    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 aroundWhile 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 aggravatingly simplistic do you really think I need you to tell me that if I want to cut down on the mess a bib is ui

    This is one of the militant parenting books I’ve read There is no grey area or allowance for any horrible purées 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 interesting ideas but it’s hard to wade through all the self righteousness and testimonials to get at the
