How to introduce solid food to your baby. Useful tips


Difficulty: Moderately Easy

Things You’ll Need:

  • High Chairs
  • Baby Food
  • Bananas
  • Baby Spoons
  • Small Bowls
  • Bananas
  • cooked, pureed sweet potatoes

**Wait to start solids until your baby is between four and six months old.

**Choose a first food such as iron-fortified whole-grain rice cereal, mashed banana or pureed sweet potato.

**Thin the food to a smooth consistency with breast milk, formula or water.

**Sit your baby upright on your lap or propped with pillows in a highchair.

**Put a small amount of food on an infant spoon.

**Hold the spoon about 10 inches away from your baby's mouth and wait until he or she opens up before feeding.

**Watch your baby's reaction as you move the spoon closer.

**Feed your baby as quickly or as slowly as he or she wants to eat. This may only be a spoonful or two at the first few feedings.

**Stop feeding when the baby pushes the spoon away or shuts his or her mouth tight - this is how babies say, "I'm done!"
