Baby-Led Weaning explodes the myth that babies need to be spoon-fed and shows why self-feeding from the start of the weaning process is the healthiest way for your child to develop. With baby-led weaning (BLW, for short), you can skip purées and make the transition to solid food by following your baby’s cues. At about six months, most babies are ready to join the family at the kitchen table and discover food for themselves. Baby-Led Weaning is the definitive guide to this crucial period in your child’s development, and shows you how to help your baby:
~ Participate in family meals right from the start
~ Experiment with food at his or her own pace
~ Develop new abilities, including hand-eye coordination and chewing
~ Learn to love a variety of foods and to enjoy mealtimes
In Baby-Led Weaning, world-leading BLW authority Gill Rapley and early BLW practitioner and coauthor Tracey Murkett deliver everything you need to know about raising healthy, confident eaters.

However, there are times when the fussiness has past and your baby is still the same length and weight, and no new teeth have emerged. Suddenly, your baby isn’t sleeping through the night any more. So what is going on? While every parent is familiar with the growth spurts that sometimes makes your baby bigger over night, not many have heard about the term “wonder weeks.” “Wonder weeks” are the growth spurts not measured by weight or length. They are the cognitive and developmental growth spurts that results in bold new skills and behaviors in your baby
