Babies are ready to wean around their fifth month if they can sit up, hold their head steady, and have enough coordination to pick up food and put it in their mouth.
Baby’s first introduction to solids is an exciting time but it can also be stressful for parents. At this stage, some parents like having someone at home for advice and practical demonstrations of the entire weaning process. Some help on meal planning, what to introduce and when, allergy advice, recipes, meal preparation, food storage, advice on baby-led weaning and spoon feeding, infant nutrition and weaning from milk to solids is invaluable.
It’s also good to know the difference between gagging and choking, and what to do in either situation. We can give you medical advice about all of these things, too.
