Obviously La Leche League has an agenda: healthy babies and healthy parents. As a first-time father this book gave me the information I needed to support my wife in her decision to breastfeed and gave us detailed guidelines on what foods are safest to introduce first. It encourages parents to save money and give their kids better food by avoiding jarred baby food and by providing easy recipes. This book would be a *PERFECT* baby shower or newborn gift for any first-time parent. It focuses on the first introduction of whole food at 6 months and gives facts, opinions and recipes through "over 1 year olds."

Ok ok we get it. Breastfeeding is better than formula, but do you really have to waste an entire redundant section on it? Additionally wasted are the pages on jarred foods. I truly believe a book that boasts "Whole Foods for Babies and Toddlers" should be just that. While I would have appreciated a paragraph on your arguments for natural foods and breastfeedings; I started to get annoyed when I realize that most of this book is just that. I have a 14 month old and am desperate for reciepes for him and our whole family. I feel that this book needed more receipes and less opions. PS. Most of us that are "Whole food" cooking for our kids are already on board with the previously mentioned issues.

I bought this after reading the ingredients list on a baby cereal box. (scary!!) This was the first baby cookbook I found that actually had baby cereal recipes in it. It offers good information about food introduction and allergy prevention. My son is still quite young, so we haven't tried too many recipes. The ones we have tried have been easy and good. Skip the first few chapters about how horrid formula and storebought food is, and you have a decent cookbook.

I purchased this cookbook when my baby started eating whole foods and I have used it everyday since. My husband and friends enjoy the recipes as much as our 15 month old. Recipes are simple and tasty. All of my friends have borrowed the book for feeding their own children. I would recommend it to anyone.

Wow! Beyond My Expectations. Jan. 31 2006
By N. Salmons - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Spiral-bound Verified Purchase
This is a great book. As a nutritionist, I did not look at the facts this book poses about baby food manufacturers and the benefits of breast feeding as lecturing. The truth may be hard for some to grasp, but lets face facts--baby food/formula companies are in business to make money. They are not in business for the best benefit of the baby. Those are two things they do succeed at....making money while providing a substandard product--and to think they want us to feed our children substandard food items while trying to take our hard earned money. I was fairly sure they would not get our families hard earned dollar before reading this book, but after reading it, they definitely will not get it.

I feel more determined to make sure our daughter eats only what mom and dad eat--nutritious whole foods--which only makes sense, right? If you are not all about convenience foods this is the book for you to read.

This is an awesome book. Most people don't realize how easy & how much better it is for your baby to make your own baby food. It is soooo much cheaper than the jarred junk too!!

I have found this book to be a wonderful resource since I started making food for my baby 4 months ago. The info and the recipes are great and making food for my baby has been a lot of fun and very rewarding.
