A Solid Start

Have you noticed your baby reaching out for your food or watching your fork move from plate to mouth? He's giving you a big hint. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends that babies start eating solids at about 4 to 6 months, when they've learned to swallow as well as to suck.

Other signs that your baby may be ready for solids:

  • He makes mouthing movements when he watches other people eat.
  • He's still hungry after eating a good amount of breast milk or formula.
  • He doesn't push a spoon back with his tongue when you try to feed him.
  • He moves his jaw when presented with food, rather than attempting to suck.
