Weaning your baby on to solid foods is one of the most important milestones during the early months of parenthood, and Gina's expert advice on weaning makes a baby's transition from milk to solid foods as straightforward as possible. Successful weaning establishes a pattern of healthy eating in babies, avoiding the pitfalls of fussy eaters restricted to a narrow diet. In this revised edition of The Contented Little Baby Book of Weaning, Gina includes the latest recommendations regarding breast-feeding and the introduction of solid food from the World Health Organisation and the UK Department of Health. She aims to take the worry out of weaning, guiding parents step-by-step through the process and shares the insight and expertise gained from personally helping to care for over 300 babies, and advising thousands more parents via her consultation service and website. Included in this revised edition: - The best time of day to introduce the first solid food - Which foods to introduce and at what age - Getting the balance of milk feeds and solids right - How to eliminate night feeds once solids are introduced - The importance of introducing finger foods at the right age - Extended parent-friendly feeding plans to take parents step-by-step through the different stages - Newly developed rotating meal planners for older children up to the end of the first year - Brand new questions and answers giving the most up-to-date advice to parents. The Contented Little Baby Book of Weaning is the definitive guide to ensuring babies eat well now and as they grow up and is as relevant and helpful to those parents who have not previously followed Gina's routines.

    Comments about The Contented Little Baby Book Of Weaning:

    I bought this book as a guide on how to wean my baby as other books I had didn't really go into detail about weaning. As I had used Gina Ford's Contented Little Baby to help put my little girl into a routine, it only made sense to use her guide to weaning. I am still referring to this book as my girl is currently 6 months old and have found it to be very useful, informative and easy to follow. It has a great guide for the first few months and thereafter with feeding amounts (exactly what I was looking for) and some great recipes to try too.
    I highly recommend this book as it has helped me have the confidence to wean my baby and introduce foods into her diet as she grows and develops. I certsinly have a contented little baby!

      Comments about The Contented Little Baby Book Of Weaning:

      A great book for any mother new to weaning or wanting to refresh their memory. It guides you in what foods to give, compares commerical foods, nutrition, quantities and timeframes. I especially liked the section of food affecting sleep patterns.

      "Gina Ford's no-nonsense methods of weaning are turning modern thinking on its head" Candida Crewe, Daily Telegraph "'It is hard to overestimate the good she has done...How to reward this great benefactor of mankind?...My wife takes the view that only sainthood will do.'" -- Peter Oborne, Political Editor The Spectator
