You and your little one are about to discover some amazing tastes and textures. We also have lots of great advice, top tips and how-tos, to guide you along every stage of your weaning adventure!
Is my baby ready for weaning?
Most little ones will be ready to wean at around six months old, but every baby is different!
Babies are probably ready to start weaning when they can:
• Hold their head steady on their own and sit confidently with support
• Show good hand-eye coordination bringing things accurately into their mouths
Trust your instinct and 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.
Grow your own little veg lover!
Introducing veggies in weaning gets tiny taste buds used to savoury flavours, helping them growinto a little veg lover for life!
Don’t worry if your little one didn’t start with veg, it’s never too late!
• Veg it! Start with pure veggies in the first few weeks of weaning
• Switch it! Get your little one loving a variety of tastes with a rainbow of veggies
• Repeat it! It can take up to eight tiny tastes before your little one accepts a new food. So keep trying!
