Great Addition to Your Baby Book Library!

This book is an easy read and well written. I wouldn't buy it as your only infant feeding reference, but I do consider it a must-have. As the parent of an infant with gastro reflux, I especially recommend it for other reflux parents -as this book is written by a pediatric gastroenterologist who doesn't skip over reflux in a quick, brief paragraph like other baby books. I do appreciate Dr. Vartabedian's inclusion of details such as the minimum calories needed per day by weight (though he does discourage calorie counting!). One extremely interesting part of the book is where he discusses low-iron formulas. After 6 mos., about 27 oz. of formula a day meets an infant's daily iron requirements whereas an infant on a low-iron formula would need 83 oz in one day to fulfill the body'd iron needs. -This is great info to tell your mother-in-laws who claim that your baby's digestive problems or gas are iron-related and insist on a formula switch. This is a book that you do not have to read cover-to-cover. You can simply go to the section appliable to your baby. The index is very comprehensive as well. An over all good book.

Not a must have but a good book

This would be a great book to give as a babyshower gift, wish I would have read it when I was pregnant. Book is wrote in a Question/answer format and is very easy to read. Wish doctor would give a list of age appropriate foods to serve. Alot of books I have read will give suggestions but I feel safer hearing it from a doctor. If you find it used I'd buy that copy.

A Must Have

First Foods is so informative and very easy to read. I was so scared to start feeding my daughter solids, but this book answered all my questions and provided reassurance. I really liked the question and answer format. I am lucky enough to have Dr. Vartabedian as my daughter's doctor. She had horrible reflux - but now she is doing great and eating much better. I think every first time parent should get this book!
