It's easy to skim through so you can get to the points you want to read about, all the information is chunked in an informative way, and it even covers nutrition for vegetarians and vegans, which surprised me.
I try not to live with too many "should haves" in my life, but I do keep thinking I should have bought this book months ago. It would have saved me a lot of grief when I was wonder about breast feeding, formula, spitting up, colic, poop color, etc..
Even if you do buy it late in the game, it's well worth the month. Tons of information that will guide parents on the right path when they're feeling completely clueless or frustrated by a lot of advice.
Babies don't come with instruction manuals, and though it seems like the process of feeding them should be instinctual, many times it is far from it. Enter Baby Bites, a comprehensive guide to feeding your baby from birth through the difficult toddler years.
Whether you plan to feed with bottle or breast, each has factors that can make the process more or less difficult. Both are covered in this book as is the transition from breast to bottle. Have questions about what you can eat or take while nursing? It's covered. What are the differences between the additives in various brands of baby food? It's in there. If your child prefers fruit over veggies, which fruits have similar vitamin content? Covered. Do you plan to make your own baby food? Would you like some recipes? Are there some tools that are better than others? Yep. Yep. Yep. You'll find the information. And lots more.
This is a book that you will probably want to buy and keep on your shelf for reference. It isn't particularly easy to read from cover to cover, but as a quick guide it would be quite useful. The book contains food charts, diet guides, questions with answers. There are sections dealing with food allergies and colic. There is way more information than most parents will ever want to know. But, of course, we don't know what we want and need to know until we need to know it, do we?
This book provides you with more than just strategies for feeding your child well, it is an all-inclusive guide to feeding with bonus side issues that are often the result of feeding. I especially appreciated her more balanced opinions on the types of food regarded as more "healthy."
Armchair Interviews says: A great gift for new parents (or grandparents).
