When to start introducing solid foods to your baby
Introducing your baby to solid foods should start when your baby is around six months old. Research shows that babies need nothing but breastmilk, or infant formula, for the first six months of life, this gives them all the nutrition they need. More importantly it also gives a baby’s digestive system time to develop so that they cope fully with solid foods.
It’s an exciting time for parents and babies and people are often keen to get started. It can also be a time of much confusion, especially as the guidance and advice has changed over the years.
So if you’re confused by conflicting advice, or you’re not quite sure where to start, our weaning workshop will be ideal for you.
