Baby-led Weaning: The fuss-free way to introduce solid foods

Gill Rapley


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.

The buttons on the left will take you to:

  • Information on all the books Tracey Murkett and I have written
  • Two simple 'how to' leaflets, on BLW and breastfeeding, which you are welcome to download, print and share, as well as some basic guidelines for implementing BLW with a brief explanation of the rationale behind them
  • Details of two textbooks that each contain a chapter on BLW
  • A useful info page, with my responses to common queries about BLW
  • Information about some DVDs on BLW (please note that the original BLW DVDs are temporarily unavailable)
  • Information about a few products that you may find useful when implementing BLW
  • A bit about me
  • Links to just a few of the many websites and blogs about BLW, which are jam-packed with tips and ideas
  • The email address for this site, where you can get in touch with me

Breaking news: It's official! As of November 2015 I'm Dr. Rapley! (Not a medical doctor, a PhD.) I hope to publish some papers from my research comparing spoon feeding with self-feeding very soon.
