Yes, your baby can join in at family mealtimes—right from the start!
Gill Rapley and Tracey Murkett are the creators of baby-led weaning (BLW), a commonsense way to introduce your baby to solid foods. There’s no need to struggle with purées and spoon-feeding! Instead, Baby can explore the same foods you enjoy—how they feel, smell, and taste; how to grasp them and chew them—all at his or her own pace.
The Baby-Led Weaning Family Cookbook includes 99 all-new recipes, many suited for families of 4 or more. Plus, Rapley and Murkett review all the benefits of BLW:
- It’s convenient: The whole family eats the same meal—together. No one puts Baby in the corner!
- It helps Baby learn: BLW builds motor skills, coordination, and confidence.
- It promotes lifelong health: By teaching Baby to love a variety of foods and to gauge fullness, BLW helps prevent picky eating, and overeating, later on!
