Praise for The Baby-led Weaning Cookbook

“[Baby-led weaning] makes life so much easier”

The Times

“I see many happy children, who choose their own food independently and eat at their own pace”

Stefan Kleintjes, paediatric dietician

“the benefits are great”

Independent

“It sounds like common sense: after all, would you want to be strapped into a high chair and force-fed spoon after spoon of bland vegetables? It's surely much more exciting to be able to exercise a bit of control over your diet”

Guardian

“[Baby-led weaning] could radically simplify infant feeding”

Telegraph
