This website sets out to be a point of contact, with suggestions for where you can learn more and a means for you to contact me direct, rather than being THE place to find out everything you ever wanted to know about parenting and BLW. Having said that, our books and leaflets are a great place to start! The best source of information about what BLW is and why it makes sense is the original Baby-led Weaning. Then there's the BLW Cookbook, which will help you get started with cooking for a family. Baby-led Breastfeeding explains how breastfeeding works and how to get it to work for you, while our most recent book, Baby-led Parenting, offers a practical guide to understanding your baby and being the parent he or she really needs.

It's official! As of November 2015 I'm Dr. Rapley! (Not a medical doctor, a PhD.) I'm currently busy publishing some papers from my research comparing spoon feeding with self-feeding. Oh yes, and our latest book, Baby-led Weaning Quick and Easy Recipe Book is due out in May 2017.
