First the negative. There is so, so, so much information in this book, and a lot of it is repetitive. You have to do some wading at times to get through the glut of info, not all of which is helpful, and you also have to take some of the author's recommendations with a grain of salt. Always go with what your pediatrician recommends. There are also some purely silly recommendations (see: uses for dryer lint).

And now the positive. I think the main thing I took away from this book is that you can and should think outside the traditional American diet when feeding your baby. It's not that difficult, but is extremely beneficial, to make your baby's food. And it's fine to give baby zucchini for breakfast. They don't know any different! Sneak it into their oatmeal, why not. The most useful recipe I found in here was how to cook brown rice and dried peas in the same pot.

The recipes are great, and the meal ideas are also good. Don't try to read this book straight through, skim and read the pertinent-to-you parts, and then use it as a reference guide.
