Weaning is the process of introducing solid foods into your baby’s diet, alongside their milk requirements.
Experts advice is to not to start offering solids until your baby is around the 6-month mark, unless told otherwise by your health visitor or GP. At this age, their usual milk is still a vital part of their nutrition and should continue to until 12 months at least. Remember every baby is different and you need to trust your instincts on when it is right for your little one.
