    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 This is a fantastic book for ideas for making your own baby food.

    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.

Tasting makes this introduction a lot simpler and more fun. The first half of the book is dedicated to discussing solids, including the latest research and recommendations; allergies and other reactions; sanitary guidelines and storage, and time-saving food planning. I like that there is a comprehensive list of what foods freeze well, too. The second half is devoted to recipes, starting with just one or two ingredients, progressing to more complicated ones. For a parent like me who didn't know much about this process, this is a solid (har, har) overview and a resource I'm certainly going to revisit as my kidlet embarks on her food journey.

    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.

    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 book was ok. It was useful for recipes, but the guidance at the beginning is scant, and did not answer most of my "why" or "is this ok" questions. Lots of "just ask your doctor," which I understand for liability reasons, but... I'm reading books so I don't have to bother the doctor about everything! This book was ok.

    Really great and comprehensive info. More into BLW, but I may use some ideas, especially the charts of which foods to try first.

    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 gave lots of great tips on making multiple batches at once to also conserve on energy as well as your personal time. The book was also filled with useful tips on treating constipation etc... Using fruits, vegetables and so on. It became a lot of fun once we reached stages 2 and 3 and we're able to start experimenting with spices and blending foods together to create new flavours and meals. I would recommend this book to any new parent and even ones who would like to try making their own food this next time around. Have fun with it! I especially loved that the author is a mom herself and is coming at you with her own experiences and does not make you feel like a horrible parent if you didn't stick strictly with home made food. She's down to earth and makes it fun.

    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 I thought it was a good book.

Although you would have to search on her site for it, so it is nice to have a quick reference book when needed. Also I personally think most of the recipes in the first stage are rather obvious-not sure why she made all the cute names for a pureed banana or avocado. The rest of the recipes look decent-excited to try them when my little guy is old enough!

    This book was great at helping me make recipes. I knew once I had my baby that I wanted to make her food myself. I was so excited to have my daughter taste new flavors but I didn't know how to cook some of the food. This book helped provide me with tips and recipes as to how to do it. There are some food combinations that I wouldn't normally have thought of but after you make them they make complete sense.

    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.

    A well-organized, refreshingly written guide packed with clear, helpful information. I've only tried a few of the recipes so far (so I'll try to remember to return and make updates here), but I've already learned quite a bit, and not just about baby feeding stages, but tips and trivia about different produce as well.

    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!)

    I'm going to say I finished it, just to get it out of my currently reading list. lol! All that's left are the recipes, and I'll get to them as I get to them. It's a great resource, though... I just wish my kid would eat anything! I'm going to say I finished it, just to get it out of my currently reading list. lol! All that's left are the recipes, and I'll get to them as I get to them.
