Hello,

I have read through the internet, books etc and wanted to know when to introduce solids (baby rice etc) to my daughter. I know its a bit early yet as she is only 9 weeks old but this is my first time and I am unsure.

If you could reply it would be a great help.


Thankyou

It is recommended you wait till she is 6 months and the earliest you should introduce food is 17 weeks. Follow your baby's lead in whether you wean early. I fed Ella at 16 weeks, but then again she was having 5 or 6 9oz bottles a day. Have a look online for the signs of needing more food - waking more at nite, watching you eat with interest ( hahaha Ella still makes you feel so guilty when you eat near her), grabbing at food etc and then take it from there.
We started Ella with baby rice - but she wasn't too keen. So we pureed a wide variety of fruit and veg and she devoured it.
Hope this helps

6 months is what the Health visitors and nutritionists advise, but as Fee says your baby will lead the way.
Lewis was weanted from about 18 weeks, and we started with the basic baby rice. He loved this and then from there we started pureeing fruit and vegetables and hes been realy good eating this too.
Hes now 6 months so can eat a wider variety of things, but he loves practically every fruit and vegetable under the sun :lol: (Apart from peas and bananas lol)

Try googling Anabelle Karmel, I read through bits on her website that I found helpful.

If your Health visitor is anything like mine, she will come when your baby is 3-4 months and give a basic outline on weaning and when to introduce it to your baby :D

I think every baby is different, I started Josh at 15 weeks but I've just started with Harry this week and he's 21 weeks. I think its best to follow you're baby's lead. Harry started waking in the night for a feed and bottles just didn't seem to satisfy him anymore!!! Weaning is great fun. Lots of mess :)
