I am beside myself with excitement to finally share the project I’ve been working on with you! For many months, and I might even say years, I’ve been putting every scrap of my free time into this…
A detailed BOOK stuffed full of everything anyone could ever want to know about baby led weaning!
Wait, hold on, what?
Let me back up for a second and explain how I got here.When Hailey was approaching 6 months I started researching methods of introducing solids to babies. In my research I came across baby-led weaning, the method of introducing babies to solids that forgoes the reliance on traditional purees and instead starts babies off with real, solid foods, prepared appropriately of course.
I was hooked on the idea. I started trying to find out everything I could about this method, but found very little true information that answered my questions- Was it safe? Would she get enough nutrition? Are there any benefits or drawbacks to this method? How the heck do you even do it?
I wasn’t able to find a source that answered all my questions and felt I had to just jump in somewhat blindly and try it.
Well, as many of you might know, we LOVED it. It worked so well for us and I credit Hailey’s continuous adventurous eating habits (at now three years old) to baby-led weaning. We are using and loving it for Kaitlyn (my little cover model) now too. Baby-led weaning is what sparked the creation of Munchkin Meals as well.
After becoming such big fans of the time-saving method, I couldn’t shake the idea that someone needed to write a more thorough book on the topic and David finally looked at me and said, well, do it then. A couple years, a ridiculous number of hours of research and plenty of messy, first-hand experience later, I did.
The book, which is now available for purchase through Amazon is a result of my desire to answer the numerous questions I had in the beginning and provide insight into the practice for any moms (or dads!) out there interested in introducing their babies to real food in a practical way.
I am incredibly proud to finally introduce it to you after so many months working so hard on it behind the scenes.
Thank you so much for your support and happy eating!
