A Mom’s Practical Guide to Baby-Led Weaning
Congratulations! If you're here, you are either starting to experiment with baby's first foods or you're looking ahead to that exciting day. It's so much fun to introduce our children to healthy, delicious meals and the earlier, the better!
I wrote A Mom's Practical Guide to Baby-Led Weaning because I know that this approach can be a little overwhelming. In this book, you will learn:
Traditionally, parents have been told to start their children on pureed foods, oatmeal and rice cereal and other soft items. That's certainly what I was advised when my first daughter approached 6 months, and there's nothing wrong with that method.
But more and more, there's evidence that giving kids real, solid foods -- prepared appropriately, of course -- can have incredible benefits both in their first few experiences with eating but for years to come.
I'm Brittany, a wife and mom of two gorgeous girls and the blogger behind A Healthy Slice of Life. I'm also an ACE (American Council on Exercise) certified Fitness Instructor, an ACE certified Lifestyle and Weight Management Consultant and a health coach.
I was inspired to write A Mom's Practical Guide to Baby-Led Weaning when Hailey was just a few months old because I wanted to help other busy moms (and dads!) get real tips, recipes and information about this approach to introducing kids to their first solid foods.
