The instructions in this book for making baby food purees were very helpful. I'm using a blender, rather than a food processor or food mill as they recommend, so my purees don't turn out a fine as they probably otherwise would, but that's ok. Another plus is that their recipes are not overly complicated or strange, so you might actually be willing to cook them and be able to get your child to eat them.
That being said, here's what I wasn't as happy with:
* Some info was just plain wrong, which made me question the reliability of the other info where I didn't know if it was right or wrong. For instance, they recommend you just use tap water because all water that isn't well water is fluoridated. That is incorrect. I have to use bottled water (and make sure it has fluoride) because our city water has some naturally occurring fluoride so none is added, but the naturally occuring level is well below recommended fluoride levels for children. So if I hadn't known better, I might have accepted their advice without checking myself.
* They do provide a suggested schedule for introducing foods, but they don't explain why they schedule particular foods for a particular age. Knowing whether it falls that way on the schedule because the food should not be offered earlier or because that's just the way it worked out in their hypothetical schedule would have been helpful.
* They use sugar more than I expected in their recipes for older babies and toddlers. I'm not an anti-sugar zealot, but even molasses would be a preferable choice for baby food.
It's a good book, but not a great one, and I certainly wouldn't use it as my only resource for baby food.

first off there only appears to be only one pediatrician listed in the recognition section of the book. this is the worst book i have ever read about baby food. i am making my own baby food and wanted to get recipes and techniques on how to make the foods. the book starts out with buying brand name cereal. the whole idea of making at home baby food is to make it at home. there are many other rice or other grains that you can buy ground up that are not processed into flakes. i did it with my first child. another thing that really bothered me was that commercial juice was named as the best juice for your baby. In another chapter alcohol is mentioned for the adults to put into their own drinks when they want to spice things up or make them fun. If you are making food for your children why are you drinking around them. Coke was also said to be okay to give toddlers when they are sick as long as it is flat. YOU DON'T GIVE CHILDREN CAFFEINE! Any doctor tells you this whenever your child is sick or otherwise. I don't see how they could allow this woman to teach a mommy cooking course. This book disgusted me and i shipped it back. Paying postage to send it back was worth it just to get it out of my home. I wouldn't dare sell it to someone that was really wanting to make baby food. I am not one of those moms that restricts their child from everything but come on, common sense tells you not to do these things. Your childs health is the number one concern, that is why you are looking at this book right. Skip to the next one this is just terrible. If i had more than a 1,000 word minimum you would definitely hear more things that were written in this book.

Mommy Made *and Daddy too! is just what a cookbook for families should be. If you are an omnivorous family, this is a fantastic resource for you. Unlike many healthy food cookbooks for families, it does not preach hard-core vegetarianism and offers several tips on preparing meats for babies. It includes extensive nutrition information that explains not only the USRDA for different vitamins and minerals, but what those vities and minerals do for the body. Additionally, they give dietary recommendations for babies and toddlers who are feeling under the weather (a better and more flexible version of the B.R.A.T.T. diet) and suggested menu items for children with allergies or aversions to certain ingredients. This is all alongside a very easy-to-follow plan for introducing first solids to babies and easy-to-prepare foods for every age thereafter. The ingredients are not odd or difficult to find. I would wager you that you could find all the ingredients listed in nearly every grocery store in North America.
Most importantly, the recipes are wonderful. While some of the recipes are indeed ones that you could easily figure out by yourself (as one reviewer stated) there is a very good reason for including them in this book. Sometimes you forget the simple things. Having instructions on how to prepare simple purees bound between these covers right next to the recipes for older babies and toddlers and adults reminds you how easy it is to prepare these foods. When you're tempted to go for an easy out and purchase a bunch of jarred baby foods, open up this book and you will remember that it takes nearly the same amount of time to prepare your baby's food alongside your dinner as it would to pop open a jar of pureed bananas. ...
