I loved this book. I had my first baby and wasn't sure exactly where to start or the best method. I also needed something that could be easy for the caretaker to take out of the freezer and feed to the baby with little fuss or instructions. This worked perfectly and I loved that it broke it down by each food and exactly how to do it and adjust if necessary. Every recipe/instructions I tried it worked out perfectly and the baby ate readily. If I only had one book about making baby food this would be it and I will purchase this book if I have another baby. Best to check out when baby is 5-6 months old, just before you are ready to implement baby food, is an easy read, easy to implement, and you can go with whatever is in season in the store or is on sale and it works just as well. While the instructions are how to make food enough for 3 months I paired it down significantly, also because you don't know what baby will like. It is very easy to pair it down to make for example one cantalope and one mango etc.. Highly recommend.
