Rated 5 out of 5 by from Concrete, easy to follow tips for new parents Baby Self-Feeding provides concrete guidance and tips on how to avoid the pitfalls many parents fall into when trying to introduce food initially, and subsequently expand their child's food intake. Information is presented in an easy to read and follow way. I particularly appreciated the chapter on "Understanding your child's early nutritional needs" and the breakdown on carbs, proteins and fats as well as micronutrients and the chapters on recipes for different age groups. This book will help every new parent!
