Excellent Resource, Wonderful Recipes, But Be Careful,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Top 100 Baby Purees (Hardcover)
I am so glad I bought this book; it agrees with my philosophy about shaping children's palates early, using whole foods, and organic eating in general. The recipes are easy and delicious, and give you ideas for all the way into toddlerhood. I love the inclusion of recipes using meat, fish, and chicken. My daughter has loved everything I have made from this book so far; my husband and I have even eaten a few- with salt and seasoning added for adult taste- and enjoyed them.
I do, however, agree with Lynn W.- USE WISDOM with certain recipes, since the author does not seem to follow the AAP's recommendations about when to introduce certain foods, and seems to lack a current understanding about food allergies in children. There are lots of recipes with cow's milk, tomatoes, and citrus, for example, for very young babies.
Otherwise, I highly recommend this book as an excellent resource.

The AAP has changed their opinion on food introduction--there was no good evidence to support delaying introduction of certain foods beyond 6 months of age. See the AAP website for more info.

The author means your baby's regular milk when the recipes include milk - so, for babies under 1 year of age, your regular formula or breast milk.

The latest research seems to suggest that earlier introduction of the more allergenic foods results in less of a chance of the baby developing allergies. There was never any research saying the opposite--that delaying those foods reduces risk--it was just an idea that seemed logical at the time. But the research shows the opposite.

Lactose intolerance is NOT an allergy.They are two completely different medical problems.
Perhaps you should consider having your physician discuss the two terms with you.You really should find out which problem your child has.

There are plenty of baby formulas that do not include HFCS. My son's formula does not list HFCS as an ingredient at all (much less the very first ingredient.) Neither my comment nor yours really has anything to do with this book, I just add to address it since as a mother of a five-month old baby boy, I am particularly interested in baby formula nutritional information.
