Rooted in the baby-led weaning (BLW) approach: How to start children with feeding challenges on solid foods—for a lifetime of independent eating
Your Baby Can Self-Feed, Too, is the inclusive guide to introducing solids. Over 25 percent of children experience challenges with this big step—both typically developing babies and those with (known or unknown) physical or neurological differences. Resources on how to help babies who face obstacles in making the move to solid foods are scarce. That’s where this book comes in.
Feeding therapist Jill Rabin teams up with BLW pioneer Gill Rapley to introduce their new proprietary take on Rapley’s groundbreaking approach: adapted baby-led weaning. With ABLW, you can meet your child’s needs by: responding to his or her signs of readiness, whenever they appearadapting food to fit his or her abilities and promote skill developmentworking with your therapist to provide individualized targeted supportusing “bridge devices” (for example, silicone feeders) with your therapist’s guidance
Baby-led weaning transformed the parenting landscape by replacing boring purées with real, healthy food that babies can explore for themselves—while building motor skills, coordination, and confidence. Now, every baby can benefit: Your Baby Can Self-Feed, Too!

Very useful information! As my four month old grows more interested in food I was happy to be selected to read an advanced version of this book. Much like in the original Baby Led Weaning book, there are case studies, and tips and tricks to help make the food introduction process smooth and “user friendly.” With Adapted BLW, you get more specific recommendations for the challenges you may face when your child has a genetic disorder, sensory issues, aversions, physical complications (hello again to my nemesis the tongue tie!) and much more.
After reading I feel more equipped and confident with my ability to pursue BLW, despite any of the challenges my little one may have!
Thank you NetGalley for the ARC.
