Strange question but this is DD2 and I can't remember. Everywhere says 6 months approx but is that by date or by weeks e.g 24 weeks? I am sure when my older daughter I was told 24 week but now can only find reference to 6 months?!

It's not an exact date, it's more important to look for signs of readiness rather than starting at exactly 6 months.

6 months is 26 weeks but advice is around 6 months when baby shows signs of readiness.

There is a good guide here. As long as she has the signs of readiness mentioned, she'll be fine smile

As PP say, it's a window not a date.
