When should a baby start solids?
How old should a baby be when they start solids | What does the research say?
I have written a detailed article about this previously. But here it is in very short form.
- It is not recommended to introduce solids/complementary foods to your baby before 17 weeks (4 months)
- It is not recommended to delay the introduction of solids/complementary foods to your baby past 6 months (26 weeks)
- If you choose to start solids/complementary foods when your child is physically ready somewhere between 4 and 6 months or at 6 months, as a parent you can probably relax as it is highly likely you have made an ok decision, backed up by current research and evidence based guidelines.
