Ready to wean?
The recommended age to start introducing solid foods to your baby is around 6 months. But all babies are different and it can be hard to know when the right time is for YOU. Just as some roll over or crawl early or late some babies are will be ready to start solid foods sooner than others too. I recommend bearing in mind the 6-month guideline as well as looking out for a combination of the following signs:
- Good head and neck control and remaining in a seated position with the support of an upright baby seat or high chair
- Hand-eye co-ordination allowing baby to pick up food and move it to their mouth
- The ability to swallow food. You want to see that more of the food goes in and is swallowed than is pushed back out by baby’s tongue.
