When can my baby begin solid foods?
Here are some helpful tips from AAP Pediatrician David Hill, MD, FAAP on starting your baby on solid foods. Remember that each child’s readiness depends on his own rate of development.
Other things to keep in mind:
– Can he hold his head up? Your baby should be able to sit in a high chair, a feeding seat, or an infant seat with good head control.
– Does he open his mouth when food comes his way? Babies may be ready if they watch you eating, reach for your food, and seem eager to be fed.
– Can he move food from a spoon into his throat? If you offer a spoon of rice cereal, he pushes it out of his mouth, and it dribbles onto his chin, he may not have the ability to move it to the back of his mouth to swallow it. That’s normal. Remember, he’s never had anything thicker than breast milk or formula before, and this may take some getting used to. Try diluting it the first few times; then, gradually thicken the texture. You may also want to wait a week or two and try again.
– Is he big enough? Generally, when infants double their birth weight (typically at about 4 months of age) and weigh about 13 pounds or more, they may be ready for solid foods.
NOTE: The AAP recommends breastfeeding as the sole source of nutrition for your baby for about 6 months. When you add solid foods to your baby’s diet, continue breastfeeding until at least 12 months. You can continue to breastfeed after 12 months if you and your baby desire. Check with Dr. Dossantos about the recommendations for vitamin D and iron supplements during the first year.
