Recommends it for: new parents
Good information, but soooooo repetitive. You could get the same information in a 20-page pamphlet.

Good information, and I'm on board with the theories this book presents. After raising two kids the "normal" baby food way, I'm excited to use this method with my third. I was happy to find in reading this that the method is quite simple. So much so that some parts of this book were very obvious, but maybe that's because I'm a third time mom. All in all, I'm glad to have read this and will continue to use this as a reference.

There was too much rhetoric in the beginning of this book. I wasn't interested in the "holier than thou" spiel. I wanted a brief rundown of why one might choose this method, but mostly wanted to know how to do it. I bought the Baby-led Weaning Cookbook and wish I'd only read that as it has all the basics from this book plus recipes.

Excellent, easy to read overview of BLW. I had thought I knew what BLW was (from assumptions and rumors) but I didn't really until this book clarified it for me. I'm very excited to start solids with my baby next week. I feel confident that this method will help her form a healthy relationship with food.

It's got enough repetition to be annoying, and lots of anecdotal evidence, but the science included has bolstered my confidence in this method. As the authors state, it's not really anything new. While I'm intrigued by the method and excited to try it, the book itself wasn't my favorite.

Extremely repetitive. The cookbook has all the same information in the first 10 pages.
