The complete, authoritative guide that takes the guesswork out of feeding babies -- from birth to 24 months and beyond.
This newly revised and expanded edition of Better Baby Food combines the most up-to-date expert advice with easy-to-read information about every aspect of feeding babies, from breastfeeding and bottle feeding up to and beyond the introduction of solid foods.
The addition of 50 brand new recipes brings the total to 250, all organized by both meals and age range. Each recipe includes a nutritional analysis, and each page is packed with tips, recommendations and commonsense guidelines for parents and caregivers. Some of the important topics explored are food safety and allergies, teething and tooth care, digestive problems, essential vitamins and minerals, snacking, homemade versus commercially prepared foods, childhood obesity, and vegetarian diets.
In addition, the front section of the book includes 100 pages of up-to-date, easy-to-understand nutritional information -- helping children start off on a healthy life.

[Review of earlier edition:) An excellent and ideal source for parents, especially new parents ... It is a true blessing for parents to have such a source handy and readily available for use at home. It is definitely recommended for personal use and a great book for public libraries.
