Baby-led Weaning ist DER neue Baby-Ernährungstrend aus Großbritannien. Dabei bekommen Kinder ab dem Beikostalter feste Nahrung angeboten, die sie selbstständig essen können. Baby-led Weaning (auf Deutsch: »babygeleitete Beikosteinführung«), kurz BLW, räumt auf mit dem Mythos, dass Babys mit Brei vom Löffelchen gefüttert werden müssen, und zeigt, warum das eigenständige Essen von Beginn an der gesündeste Weg für Kinder ist. Baby-led Weaning - unterstützt das Kind in seinen Entwicklungsschritten, - ermöglicht, dass es von Anfang an am Familienessen teilnimmt, - fördert Babys Eigenständigkeit, - macht Schluss mit den gewohnten »Brei-Fütter-Schlachten«, - hilft ihnen, ernährungsbewusste Erwachsene zu werden. Das Grundlagenbuch von Gill Rapley und Tracey Murkett wird von Eltern schon sehnsüchtig auf Deutsch erwartet. Zahlreiche Foreneinträge verdeutlichen dies. »Das Buch gibt es leider noch nicht auf Deutsch. Ich versteh auch nicht warum.« (kiki2012 im Eltern-Forum zum Thema Beikost) »Wir haben das mit unserer Kleinen auch gemacht. Es funktioniert soooo gut! Und es ist für beide Seiten so viel schöner. Sie isst mit so viel Genuss und das von Anfang an. Wenn ich da an das Breifüttern mit unseren Großen denke - kein Vergleich.« (ein Gast-User im Forum von www.eltern.de zum Thema Beikost) Brei war gestern – die neue Beikost Babys anders ernähren Das Grundlagenwerk endlich auf Deutsch

This volume is a major revision and expansion of Taylor’s seminal book Radiocarbon Dating: An Archaeological Perspective. It covers the major advances and accomplishments of the 14C method in archaeology and analyzes factors that affect the accuracy and precision of 14C-based age estimates. In addition to reviewing the basic principles of the method, it examines 14C dating anomalies and means to resolve them, and considers the critical application of 14C data as a dating isotope with special emphasis on issues in Old and New World archaeology and late Quaternary paleoanthropology. This volume, again a benchmark for 14C dating, critically reflects on the method and data that underpins, in so many cases, the validity of the chronologies used to understand the prehistoric archaeological record.
