I was already well into the BLW process when we bought this book, but as an avid BLW evangelist, I had to have it anyway, for the lending library, at the very least.I wish I could take my original BLW book back and get just this one instead. The first several chapters are, in essence, a re-hashing of the original BLW book, but explained in a much simpler way, laid out more nicely, and with visual aids (charts, graphs, and -- of course -- completely adorable pictures of babies). It does offer some nice bullet-pointed lists absent from the original book that are tremendously useful -- things like "What to Expect," "Keeping Mealtimes Safe," "Common Allergens," and the like, as well as charts of relevant feeding skills by age. Also, this book offers nice long lists of actual suggestions of a variety of first and second foods, which the original book did not.Truthfully, it just looks nicer and reads more easily than the original book.As for the recipe section, I think it's quite useful. I'm a fairly good cook and menu planner, and part of the point of going the BLW route was so that the baby could quickly transition to eating basically what we (the adults) were eating. However, I know that I found myself befuddled after having the baby in how to suddenly cook as a Mom. In the old days, I could spend all afternoon preparing complex and leisurely meals... the transition to quick, one-pot cookery was not a graceful (or particularly tasty) one for me, and trying to develop meals based on how quickly I could eat them with only one free hand was tricky, to say the least. It took me several months to really find my rhythm in the kitchen again, and I suspect this cookbook might've helped.
