Baby-led or traditional puree weaning? Should you wean by spoon-feeding or rely on baby-led weaning? Weaning your baby can be a daunting prospect, and the advice you’ll receive is often confusing and contradictory. Should you follow the traditional method of introducing pureed food, or should you bypass purees altogether and try baby-led weaning with sticks of carrot? What is best for your baby? With over 18 years as a nutritionist, Dr Rana Conway is here to guide you through this sticky (and messy) subject. With established weaning methods clearly explained including spoon-fed and baby-led weaning, Weaning Made Easy brings you a practical, realistic and down-to-earth approach to weaning, to give you methods that really work. Weaning Made Easy uses the best of each method, to bring you the most practical and useful weaning advice available. With mealplans and recipes for each stage, she takes you through your baby’s weaning development – from what foods to try (and avoid) in the first six months to moving your baby onto family meals and solid food. Dr Rana answers all your questions:
* When should I start to wean my baby?
* Is there a risk of overfeeding my baby if I use traditional weaning?
* Is my baby likely to miss out on important nutrients if I use baby-led weaning?
