Paperback      ISBN: 1615196218
Forget baby pur es and spoon-feeding--your baby can join in at family mealtimes, right from the start

Publisher's note: The Baby-Led Weaning Cookbook--Volume 2 was previously published in hardcover as The Baby-Led Weaning Family Cookbook.

Baby-Led Weaning is a global phenomenon Now, here are 99 more delicious, no-stress recipes for baby-led weaning (BLW) families to enjoy together, from the creators of the BLW movement. With these recipes, introducing your baby to solid foods is easier--and more commonsense--than ever. Be amazed as Baby explores the same foods you enjoy--how they feel, smell, and taste; how to grasp and chew them--all at his or her own pace.

In addition to recipes that are perfectly suited to growing families, Gill Rapley and Tracey Murkett review all the benefits of BLW:
  • It's convenient: The whole family eats the same meal--together.
  • 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
