Weaning from breastfeeding
Start with spoon-fed puréed foods when your baby is ready (around 6 months). Move on to mashed and chopped foods over the next few months. Offer finger foods from 7–8 months when your baby is able to pick them up, bring them to their mouth and chew them.
Start with one food at a time, and add a new food every 2-4 days. Over time, increase how much and how often you give solid foods. Start with 1-2 teaspoons once a day, and slowly increase.
Safety's important when your baby is eating. Make sure your baby's well-secured in a high chair, or on your lap. Find out about foods that are more likely to cause choking.
The best drink for babies from birth to 6 months is breast milk (or formula, if breast milk is unavailable). From 7–12 months, breast milk (or formula) and water are the best drinks for your baby.
