Some people might have the temptation to start introducing solids for hungry babies from a really early age. However unless you have medical advice to the contrary, breastmilk (or formula) is all they need for the first 6 months. I practised baby-led weaning with my youngest fella and it was the least stressful of our weaning experiences. The older boy was introduced to solids at just 4 months under medical supervision because he had chronic reflux.
Once your baby reaches 6 months you can start slowly introducing solid food to their diet. It’s not as intimidating as it sounds.
