Many of the Mums here used the Baby-Led Weaning approach which I think sounds like a really great -- I had never heard of it when I started solids with my boys. I didn't use any particular method. I did read and follow some of the suggestions in the book Super Baby Food There are some wonderful recipies for babies and toddlers.

If my boys didn't like a food, I would stop feeding it and move onto something I knew they did like, then a few days later I would re-introduce the food again. I would keep having them "try" it and more often than not they would come to like that food.

What books, methods or advice were most helpful for you as you started feeding your baby? Did they work? Do you wish you had tried something else? Did you try one method with an older child and then switch to something else once you had other children?
