A simple, reassuring introduction to baby-led weaning

Baby-led weaning (BLW) is a popular method that helps babies become comfortable with starting solid foods. Discover a quick-start guide and complete baby cookbook with simple and healthy recipes that set baby on a path toward food enjoyment and independence. This baby-food recipe book will guide you through introducing tastes and textures, teaching baby to eat (and stop eating) on their own, and keeping them from becoming a picky eater.

With recipes like Baked Cinnamon Apple Wedges and Easy Chicken Noodle Soup, you'll discover tried-and-tested foods designed for growing hands, mouths, and tummies.

Inside The Super Easy Baby-Led Weaning Cookbook, you'll find:
  • The basics of BLW—Learn which foods to avoid in the first year, proper portion sizes, and how to distinguish gagging from choking.
  • Simple, healthy recipes—Introduce new foods with balanced recipes made with easy-to-find ingredients.
  • Allergens at a glance—Quickly identify common potential allergens with handy recipe labels.

Confidently begin baby-led weaning with convenient recipes and straightforward guidance.
