The Baby-Led Weaning Family Cookbook: Your Baby Learns to Eat Solid Foods, You Enjoy the Convenience of One Meal for Everyone.
The founders of baby-led weaning (BLW), a logical approach to introducing solid meals to your baby, are Gill Rapley and Tracey Murkett. You don’t have to deal with purées or spoon-feeding! Instead, Baby can explore the same foods you do at his or her own pace, learning how they feel, smell, and taste, as well as how to grab and chew them.
The Baby-Led Weaning Family Cookbook contains 99 brand-new recipes, many of which are suitable for families of four or more members. Rapley and Murkett also go through all of the advantages of BLW:
It’s practical: the entire family eats the same meal at the same time. Baby is never relegated to the corner!
It aids Baby’s learning by: BLW improves coordination, motor abilities, and confidence.
It encourages long-term health: BLW helps avoid selective eating and overeating later on by training Baby to enjoy a variety of meals and to gauge fullness.
