The recipes were fine. Definitely found the Baby-Led Weaning book more useful and the key learnings from it were re-highlighted here... good reminders but a bit redundant.

Some very good recipes in this book. My baby did not want to start eating solids at 6 months that were not in a thick puree, but started this a little later.
