When to wean your baby onto solid food? And how to do it? Read (purée-splattered) tips from other Mumsnetters
or is that a silly question?
I went with 26 weeks (6m)
ok thanks think its changed with each dc
I think it's "around the middle of the first year", babies not being an exact science.
26 weeks is 6 months, being half of 52 weeks
around middle of first year when they can sit, find mouth with food in their hand and chew it about a bit.
The WHO says 180 days
Baby development is not an accurate science. My daughter grabbed food off my plate and I felt it was a bit anal to stop her from having it. She was 24 weeks at the time and could sit well unaided.some children can walk at 9 months, where as other equally healthy children walk at 2 years old. The day when your child is ready for food is not the same as every other child in the UK.
I waited til exactly 26 weeks with my PFB! His first meal was roast dinner!
