This review is from: Baby-Led Weaning: The Essential Guide to Introducing Solid Foods - and Helping Your Baby to Grow Up a Happy and Confident Eater (Paperback)
My daughter is 5 months and I could see that she was ready to play with food (she sits up beautifully by herself and is constantly bringing everything and anything to her mouth). But I had been dreading the pureed food experience. While I had fed many babies this way when I was a babysitter... Now that it's my baby, something about it just seemed completely strange. I say this because I had already made up my mind that I wanted to introduce my daughter to real food, but didn't know how to go about it.

The book has been *FABULOUS* in helping me decide how to go about it. My daughter started playing with her food this week and it's been a pleasant, fun, and messy experience. (If something changes drastically, I'll be sure to update my review).

Yes, the book is repetitive. Yes, possibly to help parents defend themselves in their choices. I don't think of myself as a non-traditional mom, but apparently, this is a non-traditional theory and people just have a hard time understanding when you go against the norm. This book is not my "bible", but is sooo helpful in guiding me through what I think makes sense to begin with.

I read chapters 2 through 6 in one day (during my daughter's various naps). I think chapter 2 is the crux of "how to", but I enjoyed reading the other chapters as well.

One last note, I will ask my pediatrician regarding this book's claims to choking, but so far, everything the book says, it's true.
