This is a fantastic book for ideas for making your own baby food. I bought it when my kiddo was about eight months and I was stumped about moving on from straightforward fruit or vegetable purees. This is an excellent resource for adding spices, creating combinations, and adding meats and dairy. I jumped into a few recipes and then went back and read the earlier chapters. I was glad I went back and read the first part, it answers all those nagging questions and provides great tips and lots of in ...more
Good, non-pushy, seemingly well-researched overview of introducing solids to your baby. After doing my own research, I was pleased to see that the author wasn't a fan of rice cereal either. I also like that she talks about introducing solids to babies between 4-6 months as simply tasting, not replacing the breastmilk or formula that should still be baby's main source of nutrition. Tasting makes this introduction a lot simpler and more fun.

The first half of the book is dedicated to discussing sol
I love this book! I'm recommending it to all my patients at work!! It explains how to prepare food and what to give at various age groups. In general you blend the food and freeze the food in ice cube trays. Each cube is about an ounce. Store the cubes in freezer bags and thaw out when needed! Much of the frozen food is good for about 2 months. The book also has a website. The website just lists recipes , the book categorizes the recipes by age. Goes along with much of the AAP food recommendatio ...more
This book is a wonder. It explains in minute detail how to start feeding a baby solid food. Perfect for a neurotic mom like me!
This was a fantastic reference book for me, I very much wanted to make my own baby food and with the help of this book it was a great success. My daughter loved the food and it was so easy to follow the instructions. After having done it I can't understand why more people don't, it worked out to be so much cheaper for our budget and took hardly any time at all. The book gave lots of great tips on making multiple batches at once to also conserve on energy as well as your personal time.

The book w
I thought it was a good book. In truth I only read half, since the other half is just recipes for different stages. The half that I did read was very informative. I really enjoyed the information of the nutrient breakdown to see how much a baby really needs of zinc, iron, etc. I enjoyed that since I don't know how much my little guy should be getting and it is nice to have some guidelines. The one drawback I find with this book, is if you follow her website, you will know about 75% of the things ...more
Very informative and easy to read. The author compiles a lot of information and deals very fairly with a variety of views and opinions. I really appreciated that she was nonjudgmental and not preachy. She presents facts and occasionally shares her personal experience, but keeps her own opinions about potentially judgement-heavy topics like organic vs. regular and breast milk vs. formula completely to herself. Also, the recipes sound completely doable and delicious.
Great guide for parents to navigate the sometimes precarious realm of making healthy food for little ones. I found the overall tone very inviting, in a kind of "you can do it" way. The recipes range from basic (pureed fruit) to somewhat fancy (add some curry, he'll love it!) which is helpful for parents who may be afraid to add "adult" seasonings/tastes to their children's food (me!)

By far the best book about introducing solids and helping your child to become a healthy and adventurous foodie.

So looking forward to making every single one of these yummy recipes for Vi. Great, easy, fresh recipes for all stages, including family dinners. I wouldn't be scared to taste a single one. :) Bonus: There is an autumn smoothie recipe that I will be making for myself, no doubt about it!

I feel so much more confident after reading this book about feeding solids to my baby. I feel like it's complete information and I won't need to research elsewhere. It is filled with tons of practical and easy recipes my baby will surely love.

I loved this book. It was a great resource for learning how to make and feed healthy food to my baby. I highly recommend it to other mothers of infants.
Really love this book. Full of quick tips on food and easy, yummy recipes my baby loves and I would have never thought to pair together. Would like to buy.
Love how easy and accessible she makes making your own baby food! We using the stage 2 recipies right now and I'm so excited to try them all!

I loved this website when I was learning to make food for my first born! Am ecstatic there is now a book with all the recipes!
Handy info about what to feed your kid and when, but the recipes left something to be desired.
love it!!!!
