Starting solids is an exciting time in a baby's first year. Most babies are ready to start trying solid foods around 6 months of age, but this can vary. It is important to introduce new foods one at a time, in small amounts, and to watch for any signs of allergies. While some babies love solids and others take their time to get the hang of it, it is important to remember that at this age, your baby's main source of nutrition will still be breast milk or formula, so solid foods should be introduced gradually and should not replace these essential nutrients.
