Introducing solid foods

As your baby approaches six months, this is the time to start thinking about introducing solid foods (also called weaning) alongside breast milk or infant formula.

Your baby is ready for solid foods at around six months. Initially the amount of milk your baby drinks will remain very similar until weaning is established. Babies wean at different rates, so attend one of our child health clinics for information and support from our health visitors.

For further information about introducing solid foods, read the NHS leaflet below:
