Frequently Asked Questions
Introducing Solid Foods
 
 
  • We  recommend waiting on cereal until 4 months of age (this should be given in a spoon not a bottle.)
  • We recommend starting baby food after 6 months of age.
  • When introducing baby food, add a new food every 3 days. This gives you time to watch for potential allergies to a new food before adding another.
  • It is appropriate to start giving water in a sippy cup at 6 months of age.
  • Table foods should not be introduced before the baby is able to sit upright in a highchair and feed themselves with their fingers.
  • All table foods should be cut into small pieces so as to prevent choking.
  • More specific instruction will be discussed at your well check with your provider. Feel free to make a list of questions you may have and bring them with you to your visit.
