I was recently sent the book, Super Nutrition for Babies: The Right Way to Feed Your Baby for Optimal Health to review. I have to say, that I am so glad that I was, because I really think that my life would have been poorer without it and I am not kidding. It filled a very big gap for me, and saved me hours and hours of research. Have you gone through the Healthy Baby Code program? If you haven’t and plan on getting pregnant or are pregnant, it is awesome and definitely worth the investment. Module 5 covers baby’s first foods and I found it very interesting and informative. I consider this book an extended and detailed version of module 5. It is based on WAPF/paleo/real-food fundamentals. While I was reading it, I kept thinking this is very easy to follow and very digestible, even for those parents that are not familiar with these lifestyles.
The authors, Kelly Genzlinger and Katherine Erlich, M.D. did a phenomenal job educating the reader and providing a step by step guide on how to feed your baby at every age. I also loved how the book came fully equipped with recipes and schedules. I finished this book and felt like I had no further questions (which is rare for me!). I felt comfortable and prepared for when we start introducing solid foods to our baby. An added bonus in the book, are the advertisements from the 30s to 50s, showing what babies were fed then, as expected – healthy, real foods including meat & liver!
I pretty much read this entire book in a few hours and recommended it to all my girlfriends with infants. I am so happy to have come across a book that covers proper nutrition, to help guide those parents that choose to feed their kids nutrient dense foods, opposed to fortified cereals. B & I will definitely be using this as our reference guide to feeding our little one!
