Filled with mixed emotions, it’s that exciting milestone when you first introduce solids to your baby. This step signifies that your little one is growing up, changes are coming, meal times are about to get really messy and their world is about to open up to an exciting array of new tastes and textures.
So get your camera ready, set up your video recorder, make sure you’re not wearing white and get ready for some super cute starting solids moments!
While all babies are ready at different times generally sometime close to 6 months (though not before 4 months) is the perfect time to start experimenting with solid food for babies.
Start with a smooth and pureed consistency, working towards a mash with soft lumps and then from 8 months on you can introduce coarser mashed foods, small soft lumps, chopped or grated small soft pieces, soft finger food while encouraging the art of self-feeding.
