“I love this book. I love how kind and personal and informative it is. It has wonderful recipes and information about nutrition but also things I didn’t think much about like when to pinch the umbilical cord, different methods of childbirth, and how to give baby medicine by eating foods and drinking teas to pass it on through breast milk. I’m excited to try all these recipes, too. Many of the ingredients are things I already use so it’s convenient while being creative. I’m just so pleased.” – Amazon Review

But instead of considering diet and lifestyle factors, doctors pump their patients full of expensive and invasive fertility treatments.

Alicia has a beautiful way of describing mommyhood and providing advice to be a happy, healthy and kind mama! So often, I hear negative things from current mommies about what mommyhood is like.

Baby Led Weaning for Vegans: 60 Plant-Based Recipes for Babies and Kids that Adults Will Love
“Baby led weaning is feeding your baby real, whole foods rather than pureeing vegetables into traditional baby food. I learned about it when my daughter was 4 months old and it was the first time I’d ever heard of such a feeding style. It freaked me out, but it also intrigued me. How could she possibly eat a whole pear without choking? I’d only ever seen parents spoon-feeding their babies from jars or homemade pureed steamed vegetables. Could it possibly be safe to let her pick up her own food and eat as much as she wanted? But it struck a chord with me. I believe in real, whole vegan food and its power to transform a human. I wanted my child to love and respect healthy food without having an emotional attachment to it that caused her to overeat as an adult. It makes so much more sense for her to decide for herself how much to eat, rather than me randomly deciding she’s done. It also turns out people have been feeding their children this way since time eternal. It’s actually more of a modern tradition to puree everything before giving it to a baby learning to eat. After I read more about it, I dove right in. I found a few great books and websites about baby led feeding (a better term in my opinion as it really has nothing to do with actual weaning off breastmilk,) but I could not find much about people feeding just plant foods. I had to really research to make sure I gave her everything she needed and was balancing her diet well. There was no book on Baby Led Weaning for Vegans, but now there is. This has 60 completely vegan recipes that you can serve to any age person, from 6 months on. These are healthy recipes we use all the time and love and all can be whipped up in under an hour, from snacks and salads and soups to beans and patties and whole grain dishes. Some of our favorites are PB&J smoothies, fettucine alfredo with shiitake bacon, and oozy vegan mac-n-cheese. Enjoy!”
“this was a very quick read and was exactly what I wanted to solidify Baby Led Weaning for our vegan baby (I initially read the regular “baby led weaning” by Raplay book but wanted vegan meal ideas since I need to clean up what we eat by the time our son starts solids). It reiterated the concepts from the first book in a simpler quicker fashion which I appreciate for caregivers and my husband who just need the gist of what baby led weaning is but aren’t necessarily excited about reading long books pertaining to the subject.” – Amazon Review
