Amazon.com Review

For parents who want to avoid food fights, pediatrician T. Berry Brazelton knows best. From hungry newborns to food-flinging toddlers, Brazelton and co-author Joshua Sparrow focus on how to get your child to eat. They warn: "When parents struggle with a child over food, the child's hunger—-a key to healthy eating--loses its importance." Their approach defines eating as an opportunity for independence and family intimacy. Parents must expect predictable "touchpoints" that signal development. Brazelton and Sparrow urge parents to declare a child's independence at the ripe age of one--when the child takes control over choice and quantity of food. A much-repeated value here is banishing distraction, be it television or nagging, so mealtime becomes time of pleasure and closeness. All of the usual questions (breastfeeding vs. bottle, food allergies, picky eaters) are expertly answered along with the more unusua! l queries (how separation anxiety affects eating, how to tell if a child is hungry). Reassuring and rich with details, Feedingwill increase every parent's confidence in building healthy habits. --Barbara Mackoff --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

First of all, let me say that I am a big fan of Dr. Brazelton and appreciate his no nonsense approach. After I saw his week long series on the Today show I decided to purchase this book thinking it would help me with feeding my 15 month old.
Unfortunately, I was disappointed when I received the book. It details feeding your child from birth all the way up through elementary school. Because it's a short book there isn't a whole lot of information for any one age group. I found that Dr. Brazelton was able to cover just about everything written in this book during his five minute segment on the Today show.
If you've seen Dr. Brazelton discuss this topic in an interview then you don't need to buy the book.
Perhaps because Dr. Brazelton does use a common sense approach, there's little to write about? I'm not sure.
It won't turn me off from other Brazelton books though. I fully intend on purchasing his potty training book when the time comes. Since that topic has a more narrow scope, perhaps there will be more information relevant to my son's age.

Feeding the Brazelton Way is exactly what I, and I suspect,many other parents need: a short, concise, easy-to-use, easy-to-understand guide to feeding babies and young children. In addition to answering all my questions and organizing solutions to problems I hope I never need to deal with, the book is full of encouragement, hope, and reassurance. I found it especially reassuring to be affirmed in my belief in the value of family mealtimes, and I promise, Dr. Brazelton, that I will try to stay out of struggles over food. Thank you, thank you, thank you for this wonderful book.

This is the ideal book for every parent who wants to know how to help their child learn healthy eating habits. But according to Brazelton, you'd better start early. I think parents everywhere will find this book contains everything they need to know - yet it is small enough to fit into a pocket: what a relief!

By Issac K. Ohnheiser on March 11, 2012
Format: Paperback
This is an amazing book. I am a devout health nut and have of course carried that over into our daughters life. Before our little girl was born I did ample amounts of research on how to raise a child that does not become a picky eater. Of the 15+ books I read on this subject alone, this book had the most helpful and realistic tips and techniques. If you are not a health nut, but would simply like to raise a child who eats their vegetables and does not throw a fit at dinner when something is served that he or she is unfamiliar with- this is the book for you! I loved that the book began with breastfeeding and worked its way through all of the stages until it eventually ended with dealing with a picky toddler. I truly feel that good nutrition starts on DAY ONE and loved that this book really harnessed that theory. Our daughter is now almost two drinks only water and milk, eats every single fruit and vegetable in the produce department with no crying or power struggles, and aside from being occasionally picky about chicken (and this is still rare) eats all meats- including seafood. I really feel like the tips from this book helped us to achieve our goal of raising a healthy eater for life and am so happy that I picked up this book when she was 4 months old!!

This book is a good way to start your baby eating well from the beginning. Dr. Brazelton has a laid back, common sense approach that really works. After dealing with two kids that fight eating practically anything, I wanted to do things differently with my newest child. The advice not only worked for the baby, but the older kids as well! I recommend this book highly.
