Praise for The Baby-led Weaning Cookbook

[Baby-led weaning] makes life so much easier

The Times

I see many happy children, who choose their own food independently and eat at their own pace

Stefan Kleintjes, paediatric dietician

the benefits are great


It sounds like common sense: after all, would you want to be strapped into a high chair and force-fed spoon after spoon of bland vegetables? It's surely much more exciting to be able to exercise a bit of control over your diet


[Baby-led weaning] could radically simplify infant feeding
