At some point between 4 and 6 months, your baby will be developmentally ready to try solid food - but how can you tell? Look for these three telltale signs.
Is your baby ready for weaning?
It’s recommended, by the Department of Health, that you breastfeed your baby exclusively for the first six months of their life, after which you can start to wean them onto solids. However, all babies are different, and you might find that your baby is ready to accept solid foods a little sooner than this. Your health professional or midwife will able to advise you on this, if you think that’s the case.
