Solids readiness depends on both the maturity of baby’s digestive tract and baby’s developmental readiness for solids. Most babies are developmentally ready for solids somewhere around 6 months.
Signs that indicate baby is developmentally ready for solids:
• Baby can sit up well without support.
• Baby has lost the tongue-thrust reflex and does not automatically push solids out of his mouth with his tongue.
• Baby is ready and willing to chew.
• Baby is developing a “pincer” grasp, where he picks up food or other objects between thumb and forefinger.
• Baby is eager to participate in mealtime and may try to grab food and put it in his mouth.
Transitioning from Pureed Food
Once they are used to pureed food, you can try giving them lumpier food pieces and take this chance to introduce new flavors to their menus!
1. Infants should be able to sit upright and face forward to make swallowing easier and choking less likely.
2. Use baby feeding spoon that is gentle for their delicate gums.
3. Do not add sugar, salt or any seasoning.
4. Introduce only one new ingredient at a time and wait three or four days before trying another to make pinpointing allergies easier, if any.
Here are some tips we use in our homes to help ensure meal time is a happy time for the whole family.
1. Training the little ones to sit on a high-chair for meals very early on could be very helpful. This is signal to them that it is meal time.
2. Let them touch, feel and enjoy their food. And, most importantly, let them be a part of the dining conversation to make meal time sociable!
3. Always reward good behaviors, praise the little ones and the food!
