Moving on to solids
When your baby’s about six months old, you may find you start getting a few hints that it’s time for weaning.
These include sucking and chewing on hands and toys, and demanding more milk than usual. You may find your baby stops sleeping through the night and wakes up wanting to be fed instead. A really big sign is if your baby starts showing an interest in what you’re eating and reaches out to grab it.
It’s recommended that a baby should be breastfed exclusively for the first six months. Every baby has its own timetable, so if you notice any of these signs earlier, check with your health visitor or public health nurse before you begin introducing solids.
