Does anyone have other good resources for Baby-led Feeding as a method for introducing solid foods to babies?

I've read the Dutch(?) webpage by Stefan Kleintjes,

and the British blog,

Apparently, there's also a DVD by Gill Rapley "Baby-led Weaning", but I've only seen it for sale on an Australian website for $113,

Can anyone recommend books, blogs, magazine articles, or threads on Mothering (or where to get Rapley's DVD cheaper)?

There aren't tons of websites out about it yet. I've found the yahoo group B-LW to be very useful. The wikipedia entry is informative:

The Tribal Baby site also has a section on BLW:

And just to show off, here are some pics of my DD's early B-LW experiences

The British blog was the best resource for me, as well as the forums here. The best way is to just start! I was pretty nervous at first, but after a couple months it is really so normal I can't imagine having done it differently!
Tankgirl73--I love the photos! I love how perfectly the curiosity and interest is captured!
