    Default baby-led solids book & updated guidelines

    I almost fell off my chair with delight when I saw this ...

    Baby-Led Weaning book by Gill Rapley coming out at the end of December 2008.

    We're way past the "starting solids" phase, but I'm tempted to buy a copy of this book anyways ...

    OK, I read the description of the book, and my interest is peaked. But I'm still wondering exactly what baby-led weaning is?

    Please correct me if I am wrong.

    Basically instead of using jarred baby food or purees you go straight to actual food. Really soft things that they can mash with their gums.

    I am very interested in this this time. Both of my older girls disliked purees but I didn't know there was any other way. I am reading up on it to try with this baby.

    there are a TON of great threads on the topic.

    Thanks for the info. This sounds awesome. And very timely, too. DD has just started rice cereal. Since she's my third, I'm really eager to get her to eating table foods ASAP with the rest of us. This really makes a lot of sense..thanks for posting it!

    Wow, that's great Lynn. If you buy a copy, I'll buy it from you later on if we have another LO!

    I love BLS and would love to read that book. We did BLS with Hunter and will do it with our next one someday. If it wasn't for this site I would not have known what it was. My family and others thought I was crazy for doing BLS but hunter feeds himself and eats just about everything. He has never (knock on wood) choked and has always fed himself. I still is really hard for my MIL though She always is wanting to feed him and tries to chop up his food into really small pieces. Then she wonders why he doesn't want to eat for her, I tell her he doesn't like to be force fed but she doesn't listen
