The bestselling author of THE NEW CONTENTED LITTLE BABY BOOK offers practical, down-to-earth advice on weaning, a major area of parental nervousness.
All parents have to do it but even the most confident will admit that weaning is one area of parenting that can be cause for much anxiety and concern. So many questions need answering, most of them begining with 'when?'
Gina Ford has devised her own weaning and feeding plan which fits in with a baby's natural feeding needs. She covers all the different questions parents may have about weaning, from the initial 'when to wean' to how to establish routines and make sure babies get all the nutrients they need. Packed with parent-friendly schedules, feeding plans and personal stories from the many mothers Gina has worked with over the years, this book is the definitive guide to ensuring babies eat well now and as they grow up.
“'It is hard to overestimate the good she has done...How to reward this great benefactor of mankind?...My wife takes the view that only sainthood will do.'”
