    Default What age to introduce food ?

    Is it 4 or 6 months ??

    And what kind of foods

    I feel stupid asking this but it's been 5 years between dd2 & dd3 and I have forgotten so much 😐 I sometimes feel like a first time mum again !!

    So any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated

    6 months - which is the latest recommendation - all food except honey is also recommended after 6 months so try everything! I recommend Baby Led Weaning , my DS was eating everything from prawns to lamb chops by 7 months!

    I was thinking 6 months and was leaning towards blw

    It will be so much easier being able to give dd3 what we are eating

    Thanks ladies

    I started my bub about a week before 4 months, I took his lead, he was showing so much interest, we started on purΓ©es, then as he developed we introduced finger foods & changed the texture of his puree to mash or chopped peices, he's nearly 9 months now & is a fantastic eater.

    I think the best thing is to listen to your bubs lead & use common sense... πŸ‘

    Up to you but rice cereal really has no nutritional value. Perhaps try mashed / puree veg and fruit and go from there - just a suggestion

    When I had DD it was 6 months but I read the latest now is between 4-6 months. I started DS a few weeks ago, he's 5 months now, he was showing a lot of interest and can hold his torso up well with just a little support.

    We have allergies in the family so I'm doing a single new food every 3 days pureed or mashed. I'll be getting him onto finger foods as soon as he can sit a bit better. He's shown he was more than ready as he lunges at the spoon, masticates small lumps and clamps his mouth shut when he's had enough.

    I did the same method with DD but started closer to 6 months, finger foods from 8 months and she's an awesome eater!

    I started my DD at 6 months but in hindsight she prob wasn't truly ready until 8 months. I also tried BLW which was disastrous. Most babies chew the cr@p out of food but nope not my LO. She'd often chew a few times then swallowed so had a few too many choking episodes. I was still pureeing her food at 10 months old .
    Just do what you think is best.
