So, based on my trust of Dr. Sears, I gave this book a chance and I was pleasantly surprised! The emphasis is on the importance of whole, fresh, organic foods from the very beginning of eating (no earlier than 6 months old) with focus on the value of DHA in the diet to promote healthy brain development. It has helpful hints for feeding picky eaters and promoting a taste for a wide variety of foods. There are also great recipes for tasty sounding things that I had never thought of before. I also liked the discussion of probiotics in baby food and wished that I had known more about the benefits of those as i was starting to feed my son.
Of course, there are product tie-ins to the Happy Baby Brand Foods, but they aren't at all obnoxious, as I had feared. In fact, I became kind of curious and sought out some of their products. I liked how the frozen pureed foods for babies came in three distinct stages, just as discussed in the book, and that they were pretty much unadulterated organic fruits, vegetables, and grains. I can see how the foods might make meal time easier for a busy mom like me who wants to make all her own food, but can't always afford the time.
Anyway, I found the book to be valuable, all in all, with a lot of clear and helpful information, thanks to Dr.Read more ›
Kiwi Magazine Review:
Whenever I see a book about raising baby, I always look at the author's credentials. In this case, I was happy to see that Dr. Sears is a board-certified pediatrician, the father of three sons, and a co-author of several titles on the health and well-being of children. This book is comprehensive, readable and medically sound. It's also nearly 400 pages, but it is well-organized and has a comprehensive index so it is easy to find what you want, even if you're a sleep-deprived new parent (see pages 142-143!).

This book is great, but mostly just talks about going green and buying all organic. We do this *mostly* already, so I stopped reading it. Read morePublished on November 28, 2013 by Melissa
Ehh...Not in depth, not REALLY geared toward organic living. I expected this book to be for the organic/holistic home. Written by the same author who wrote The Vaccine Book.Published on October 15, 2013 by jenn
