Feeding Your Child - The Brazelton Way Reviews
Keeping it simple, this favorite author of mine does a good job of covering all points without putting you to sleep. Food, also being an aspect of nurturing, and once again he approaches common problems that parents sometimes have with feeding with out making it too complicated. It's a great book to have as a reference for guidelines at different ages.
This book is a good way to start your baby eating well from the beginning. Dr. Brazelton has a laid back, common sense approach that really works. After dealing with two kids that fight eating practically anything, I wanted to do things differently with my newest child. The advice not only worked for the baby, but the older kids as well! I recommend this book highly.
This is an amazing book. I am a devout health nut and have of course carried that over into our daughters life. Before our little girl was born I did ample amounts of research on how to raise a child that does not become a picky eater. Of the 15+ books I read on this subject alone, this book had the most helpful and realistic tips and techniques. If you are not a health nut, but would simply like to raise a child who eats their vegetables and does not throw a fit at dinner when something is served that he or she is unfamiliar with- this is the book for you! I loved that the book began with breastfeeding and worked its way through all of the stages until it eventually ended with dealing with a picky toddler. I truly feel that good nutrition starts on DAY ONE and loved that this book really harnessed that theory. Our daughter is now almost two drinks only water and milk, eats every single fruit and vegetable in the produce department with no crying or power struggles, and aside from being occasionally picky about chicken (and this is still rare) eats all meats- including seafood. I really feel like the tips from this book helped us to achieve our goal of raising a healthy eater for life and am so happy that I picked up this book when she was 4 months old!!
This is the ideal book for every parent who wants to know how to help their child learn healthy eating habits. But according to Brazelton, you'd better start early. I think parents everywhere will find this book contains everything they need to know - yet it is small enough to fit into a pocket: what a relief!
Feeding the Brazelton Way is exactly what I, and I suspect,many other parents need: a short, concise, easy-to-use, easy-to-understand guide to feeding babies and young children. In addition to answering all my questions and organizing solutions to problems I hope I never need to deal with, the book is full of encouragement, hope, and reassurance. I found it especially reassuring to be affirmed in my belief in the value of family mealtimes, and I promise, Dr. Brazelton, that I will try to stay out of struggles over food. Thank you, thank you, thank you for this wonderful book.
