Weaning is when you start feeding your child solid foods, you should start weaning your baby at around 6 months old. The reason why health experts say this is the perfect age is because your babies digestive system is becoming more developed to handle solid foods
Is my baby ready for solids?
There are a couple of signs to look out for when you know your baby is ready for solids:
1. They have developed the skills to co-ordinate their hands, eyes and mouth so that they can look at the food, pick it up and put it in their mouth.
2. They can hold their head steady in an upright sitting position.
3. They need to be able to swallow their food. If your baby pushes more food back out so they have more on their face than what’s in their mouth.
