Getting ready for weaning

How do I know if my baby is ready to start weaning?

Some signs to look out for include:

• Your little one sitting up + holding their head steady by themselves

• Good hand-eye coordination like picking up a spoon + popping it into their mouth

Trust your instinct + you’ll know when the time is right. If your baby just pushes out what you give them, don’t worry – wait a week or two and try again. Find out more from expert nutritionist Claire here.

Getting ready for weaning

When should I start weaning my little one?

Most little ones will be ready to wean at around 6 months old, but every baby is different.

It’s important that you don’t give your little one food before the age of 17 weeks as tiny tummies + kidneys aren’t ready.

If you think your little one is ready to start weaning before they're 6 months old, have a chat with your health visitor. For more top tips on when to start weaning click here.
