Baby-led Weaning

Helping Your Baby to Love Good Food

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Contrary to popular belief, there is no research that supports the current mainstream view that babies should be weaned by being spoon-fed purées. Self-feeding allows babies to use their natural abilities to explore taste, texture, colour and smell. It encourages independence and confidence by allowing them to experiment with foods at their own pace and helps to develop hand-eye coordination and chewing.

Baby-led Weaning is a practical and authoritative guide to introducing solid food, enabling your child to grow up a happy and confident eater. It shows parents why baby-led weaning makes sense and gives them the confidence to trust their baby's natural skills and instincts.

With practical tips for getting started and the low-down on what to expect, Baby-led Weaning explodes the myth that babies need to be spoon-fed and shows why self-feeding from the start is the healthiest way for your child to develop. Your baby is allowed to decide how much he wants to eat, how to eat it and to experiment with everything at his own pace.

Baby-led weaning is a common-sense, safe, easy and enjoyable approach to feeding your baby. No more purées and weaning spoons, and no more mealtime battles. Simply let your baby feed himself healthy family food.

Customer Reviews

Very useful

I used the advice in this book when my son was starting to eat and I'm very happy with the results. He enjoys food and eats a range, and he eats what and how much his body tells him he needs. Some days more, some days less, some days lots of meat, some days lots of carbs. Veg was a bit of a latecomer and my husband was worried and wanted to persuade him to have some but he is just starting to eat more of the veg he is offered now at 19 months. Highly recommended!

Must have

Forget spoons and purees this is the way forward my daughter is 16 months has been eating the same food as us since 6 months and hasn't had any of the fussy faddy stages that all my friends babies have had. I let her be the judge of how much she eats and meal times are always relaxed never a battle!!
