The Baby-Led Weaning Family Cookbook
Your Baby Learns to Eat Solid Foods, You Enjoy the Convenience of One Meal for Everyone
 

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!

Baby-Led Weaning series

Tracey Murkett is a freelance writer and journalist and a volunteer mother-to-mother breastfeeding helper. After following baby-led weaning with her own daughter, she wanted to help to spread the word about how enjoyable and stress-free mealtimes with babies and young children can be. She lives in London with her partner and their daughter.

Gill Rapley, the pioneering champion of baby-led weaning, has studied infant feeding and child development for many years. She worked as a public health nurse for more than 20 years, and has also been a midwife, lactation consultant, and breastfeeding counselor. She lives in Kent, England, with her husband and has three grown-up children, all of whom tried their best to show her that they didn’t need any help with solid foods.
