Explodes the myth that babies need to be spoon-fed, and shows why self-feeding from the start of the weaning process is the healthiest way for your child to develop. With baby-led weaning (BLW, for short), you can skip purâees and make the transition to solid food by following your baby's cues. At about six months, most babies are ready to join the family at the kitchen table and discover food for themselves. This book is the definitive guide to this crucial period in your child's development, and shows you how to help your baby participate in family meals right from the start; experiment with food at his or her own pace; develop new abilities, including hand-eye coordination and chewing; and learn to love a variety of foods and to enjoy mealtimes.--Frompublisher description.

For thousands of years, humans have thrived without “baby food” (which was invented in the late nineteenth century). Think about it: the human race has made it this far largely on whole food. Only in recent decades have we begun overthinking and over-processing our foods, which has led to chronic dieting, chronic disease, disordered eating, body distrust, and epidemic confusion about the best way to feed ourselves and families. Eating is an innate skill that has been overcomplicated by marketing schemes and a dieting culture. It’s time to leave the dieting culture behind for the whole family. It starts with the baby’s first bite! We are all Born to Eat and it seems only natural for us to start at the beginning—with our babies. When babies show signs of readiness for solid foods, they can eat almost everything the family eats and become healthy, happy eaters in the process. By honoring self-regulation (also an innate skill) and focusing on a whole food foundation, we can foster healthier children, parents, and families. You don’t have to cook another entire meal to feed just baby, nor blend everything you eat into a puree to support healthy growth in an infant. With a little patience, presence, and skill, you can transform nearly any family meal into a baby-friendly food. Who knew a little planning could have the whole family eating together, and better? Aside from the United States, most countries are accepting of babies starting of solids with the foods of the family. With a focus on self-feeding and a baby-led weaning approach, nutritionists and wellness experts Wendy Jo Peterson and Leslie Schilling provide age-based advice, step-by-step instructions, help for parents, and easy recipes so you can ensure that your infant is introduced to healthy and tasty food as early as possible.

A Mom's Practical Guide to Baby-Led Weaning is written by popular blogger and mother of two, Brittany Dixon (www.ahealthysliceoflife.com). Prior to starting her blog, Brittany was a certified fitness and weight management consultant, who managed her own health coaching and metabolic testing company before closing it to stay home and raise her two beautiful daughters. This book includes a brief history of the practice of Baby-Led Weaning, outlines benefits both for baby and parents, answers common concerns, discusses when and how to begin, and even includes some recipes to get you started! Baby-led weaning, or BLW, is the practice of allowing babies to feed themselves whole foods from the very beginning. That means babies use their little hands to grasp, mash, and feed themselves whole, natural foods without special preparation. It also means there's no need for you, as a parent, to stock up on hundreds of jars of pureed baby food (or spend hours making your own), or to sit and spoon food into your little one's mouth. BLW does away with lots of the time-consuming parts of baby feeding by allowing your baby to feed him or herself. There are many reasons why parents might decide to try baby-led weaning with their children. There has been quite a bit of research lately that deals with the developmental benefits of BLW but there are also many more practical reasons why parents might be enticed to try BLW. Perhaps they, themselves, were picky eaters and they are hoping to raise children with more adventurous palettes. Maybe they are trying to save money on their family's food budget and they want to avoid having to purchase expensive baby foods. Or maybe they care about obesity issues facing people-particularly children-and want to instill in their children a healthy relationship with food. Any of these reasons are great ones for exploring baby-led weaning with your children. Maybe all of them make sense to you. Or maybe your reasons are entirely different. Whatever the rationale, A Mom's Practical Guide to Baby-Led Weaning is thorough enough to answer your questions and give you the confidence to succeed!
