Obviously La Leche League has an agenda: healthy babies and healthy parents. As a first-time father this book gave me the information I needed to support my wife in her decision to breastfeed and gave us detailed guidelines on what foods are safest to introduce first. It encourages parents to save money and give their kids better food by avoiding jarred baby food and by providing easy recipes. This book would be a *PERFECT* baby shower or newborn gift for any first-time parent. It focuses on the first introduction of whole food at 6 months and gives facts, opinions and recipes through "over 1 year olds."

This is a great book. As a nutritionist, I did not look at the facts this book poses about baby food manufacturers and the benefits of breast feeding as lecturing. The truth may be hard for some to grasp, but lets face facts--baby food/formula companies are in business to make money. They are not in business for the best benefit of the baby. Those are two things they do succeed at....making money while providing a substandard product--and to think they want us to feed our children substandard food items while trying to take our hard earned money. I was fairly sure they would not get our families hard earned dollar before reading this book, but after reading it, they definitely will not get it.

I feel more determined to make sure our daughter eats only what mom and dad eat--nutritious whole foods--which only makes sense, right? If you are not all about convenience foods this is the book for you to read.

I purchased this cookbook when my baby started eating whole foods and I have used it everyday since. My husband and friends enjoy the recipes as much as our 15 month old. Recipes are simple and tasty. All of my friends have borrowed the book for feeding their own children. I would recommend it to anyone.

This is an awesome book. Most people don't realize how easy & how much better it is for your baby to make your own baby food. It is soooo much cheaper than the jarred junk too!!

I have found this book to be a wonderful resource since I started making food for my baby 4 months ago. The info and the recipes are great and making food for my baby has been a lot of fun and very rewarding.

I thought I'd really like this book, I thought it would give me good information on what foods to start my baby out with when and why. When i began readingi felt like the intended audience was pregnant women, thats because they spend lots of time developing the concept that breastfeeding is the best way to go for the first 6 months to 2 years. I agree and i am glad i decided to breastfeed but i bought a book for starting solids, not for breastfeeding. The mere fact this book was put out by the le leche league would suggest breastfeeding support. They really beat the dead horse on the issue too. I think two pages of information and a plug for the other le.leche league publication on breastfeeding would have been fine.
This book spends far more time decrying corporate greed and less time on the subject of BEGINNING solids. I also found the argument against low quality commercial baby food to be weak when they suggest you start your baby off with just that-in the form of infant rice cereal-fortified with iron even -and that's after they tell you that this stuff doesn't have iron that is as absorbable as other foods and is low quality from a bad company... I felt like this book was very much a product of its publishing era...when the ideas that commercial food wasn't all it was chalked up to be -was just getting up steam. So much has changed since this book's publication. I personally feel there should be a revised edition of this book for the purposes of being up to date and fixing all the typos. I didn't feel like I got much new information, or specific information, or information I couldn't have gotten off the Internet. I got more info on the le leche league forum in the starting solids section with less reading than from the book. If you want good info for beginning solids...go there: [...

Great book!! Great recipies!! I borrowed this book from my local LaLeche group a few months before starting solids with my little one. As a first-time parent, the chapters on the baby food industry were very informative (not "preachy")and brought to light some things that you just don't think about until you are a parent. I found it very helpful.

Good info in the front raising awareness about children's eating habits. Really AWESOME recipes that are simple and tasty (I like to sample my little one's food). Even used one of the recipes for applesauce cake for his first birthday cake.
