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 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.
