2. Getting Started: Introducing Solids

Signs of Readiness

Knowing when your baby is ready for Stage 1 foods goes beyond celebrating their 6-month birthday. It’s important to look out for social and developmental signals, as well. 

    Is your baby ready to start solid food?

    If you notice baby staring at your food and opening their mouth or leaning forward if food is ever offered, these are signs that solid foods have sparked your baby’s interest. 

     What is the best age to introduce solids?

    Your baby’s individual development and behaviour will guide you when you’re trying to work out when to start introducing solids.

    Look for these cues to determine if your baby is ready for solids:

    • Has good head and neck control, and can sit upright when supported
    • Shows an interest in food – for example, by looking at what’s on your plate
    • Reaches out, eagerly wanting to try your food
    • Open their mouth, when you offer organic purĂ©e on a spoon.

    Most babies start to show these signs by around five to six months.

    3. Essential Cooking Tools

    • Steamer or Microwave: Soften fruits and veggies without compromising nutrients.
    • My Baby Organics’ Pods: Convenient and perfectly portioned for little appetites.
