Introducing Solid Foods

Introducing your baby to solid foods

Introducing your baby to solid foods – sometimes called weaning should start when your baby is around six months old. It’s a really important step in their development and it can be great fun to explore new flavours and textures together and  essential that you introduce your baby to a healthy diet from the start.

Drinks and cups for babies and toddlers

If you’re bottle feeding, it’s a good idea to introduce a cup rather than a bottle from about six months. By the time your baby is one, they should have stopped using bottles with teats. Otherwise, they may find it hard to break the habit of comfort sucking on a bottle.
