    Also "The Baby Led Weaning Cookbook" by the same authors. The criticism I have heard of the original book is that it is a little redundant, so I just got the cookbook. It has a few chapters at the beginning that give an overview of the ideas of the original book. Then there are 130 recipes, and who doesn't love recipes???

    I'll agree that the original Rapley book was redundant, but if you need to convince anyone why you aren't using jars of baby food like me, you'll need plenty of backup.

    And since the concept is all about trusting your child, for *me* reading all that made me feel knowledgeable and prepared, like I knew what I was doing.

    Good luck! BLS has been awesome for us so far.

    Us too! What a joy it is to watch our LO explore all the tastes and textures and sights... We babysat for a 6 MO a couple days ago whose mom instructed us to hold her arms down at feeding time and just keep scooping. This was our first experience with spoon-feeding, and I'm happy to say it's our last. (She was not a happy camper.)

    I suppose my best resource has just been all the experienced moms on these forums who are willing to answer questions and share experiences. It's easier to justify what you are doing when you can say, "well according to studies," but it's easier for me to actually feel confidant in what I'm doing when I know there are many others who have been there, done that.
