When is it best to start introducing solids to my baby’s diet?
You should start to introduce solids in addition to breastfeeding when your baby is around six months of age. By the time your baby reaches six months, they will begin to show signs that they are ready for solid food, including being able to sit with support, good head control, showing interest in others eating and opening their mouth when food is offered. While babies are learning to eat, they eat very little.
Around this time, overnight feeds can also be reduced.
Despite starting solids, breastmilk remains the main source of nutrition for your baby.
