It's a daunting time. we found the following most helpful to get us started...

 

1. Quick and Easy Weaning by Annabel Karmel - a straightforward guide to weaning from 6 months. Great recipes.

2. The Contented Little Baby Book of Weaning by Gina Ford - the recipes and detailed day to day plans are great in this book, but we found her serving sizes a little off and there was far too much blurb. Great if you have a baby who is ready to start solids at 4 or 5 months.
