What to expect when you start weaning
Introducing solids can be an exciting time full of experiments and fun. Here are 5 things to expect when you start weaning...
In general, we know that most babies are developmentally ready to introduce solids around the age of 6 months. Research has also shown us that it is safe to introduce solids somewhat earlier, from 4 months (17 weeks) onwards, as long as little ones show signs of readiness. Some babies might benefit from an earlier introduction of solids, for example babies with reflux.
Another aspect to think about is the maturity of the gut. Around the age of 6 months, your little one’s gut will produce all the necessary enzymes to break down new foods. It is also a time where the gut bacteria will start becoming more diverse. Introducing fibre-rich solids will feed good bacteria and nourish a healthy gut.
All our Little Tummy meals are suitable for babies from 6 months onwards or from the time they start exploring more complex meals.
