Introducing Babies to Solid Foods
Each baby will be ready to begin solids in their own time/rate. Beginning at about 5-6 months of age, readiness signs for the healthy baby to begin solids may include: more frequent nursing; hands often to the mouth; some irritability after nursing/wish to suck longer; doctor’s recommendation due to child’s readiness or inability to pack on enough weight for their age through milk alone. Some parents feel the urge to make their own baby food, basically because they know what they make has no added preservatives, salt, sugars or fillers. It is quick, easy and very satisfying puréeing and freezing your own baby food. Because babies’ guts are so new and we don’t know what was used in the growth of some foods, choose Organic fruits and vegetables.
