A brief overview of the contents:

Part One considers the basics of weaning, when to start and what your baby can and can't eat. It also discusses how to wean your baby looking at two different approaches.

Part Two goes through the different stages of weaning from the first tastes of solids to when baby is eating virtually to same as you. It looks at what you can expect from your baby and what and how you should be feeding him, it also includes sample feeding plans and recipes.

Part Three provides practical advice on handling problems such as fussy eaters, allergies, constipation and anaemia and more. It also covers premature babies and offers guidance for vegetarian diets.

Rather than taking a rigid didactic approach it tends towards presenting and explaining the options, considering the pros and cons, leaving the reader to come to his own informed decisions.

The book is well laid out and the information very clearly presented without any graphic gimmicks. Frequently helpful Tips are offered highlighted in boxes on the relevant page, and there are tips from other parents about what worked for them. The text is very readable

There is a great deal of sound, useful and very practical advices contained here, but it is offered as suggestions rather than rules, leaving parents the choice to employ what works for them without making anyone feel guilty about those choices. In addition it provides reassurances on may of the worries that parents will inevitability have regarding feeding.

This should prove a very valuable aid to parents, and with so much information it could never be too soon to start looking. ( )
