Introducing Solids for Your 4-6 Month Old Infant

I bet you can't believe how fast your little one is growing!  Now they're starting to eats solids, next they'll be moving out of the house for collage!  Some important key elements to remember when introducing solids to your baby is to always have it pureed and give them small amounts at a time (1-2 Tablespoons).  Also, giving your child one fruit, vegetable, or infant cereal dosing at a time and waiting for a whole 24 hours to make sure they aren't allergic to it specifically.  Talk to your pediatrician for more in depth information on this topic before your start!

  1. I enjoyed your post very much. I realize I need to be more careful with my granddaughter, who wants to grab things out of my hand and I have let her, and she has gagged on it,I'm ashamed to admit. Thankfully, my daughter was holding her and she quickly recovered, but I don't want that to happen again. It scared the baby. She was counting on me knowing better.
