The most Frequently Asked Questions

Weaning is the process of introducing solid foods to a baby’s diet while gradually reducing their dependency on breastmilk or formula.

The World Health Organization recommends starting to introduce solids around six months of age, although some babies may show readiness earlier.

Signs include being able to sit up with minimal support, showing interest in your food, opening their mouth when food approaches, and the reduction or disappearance of the tongue-thrust reflex.

Start with single-ingredient, iron-rich foods like pureed meats or single-grain cereals. After that, you can introduce pureed vegetables and fruits.

It’s recommended to wait 3-5 days between introducing each new food. This makes it easier to identify any potential allergies or sensitivities.

Begin with a smooth, runny consistency and gradually increase the texture as your baby gets accustomed to solids.

It’s normal for babies to be wary of new tastes. If they refuse, wait a few days and try again. Their preferences can change quickly.

Avoid honey (due to the risk of botulism), cow’s milk as a primary drink (though small amounts in cooking are okay), and high choking-risk foods.

Introduce one food at a time and watch for signs of an allergic reaction, such as hives, a rash around the mouth or elsewhere, watery eyes or nose, diarrhea, vomiting, or unusual fussiness.

Typically, around 7-9 months, once babies can pick up objects with a pincer grip and can chew, even if they don’t have teeth yet.

Baby-led weaning is when babies are encouraged to self-feed with finger foods instead of receiving purees. It can promote motor skills and allow babies to regulate their intake.

Include iron-rich foods like fortified cereals, meats, lentils, and dark leafy greens. By six months, a baby’s iron stores begin depleting, making external sources vital.

It’s recommended to wait until the baby is 12 months old before replacing breastmilk or formula with cow’s milk as a primary drink.

Monitor their mood, energy, growth, and the number of wet diapers. Babies will also indicate hunger by opening their mouths, leaning toward food, or getting fussy.

By 8-12 months, most babies will be eating three meals a day along with snacks, though the exact timeline can vary based on individual needs.
