Starting Solid Foods

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that babies begin a solid food regimen around 6 months old. But here are a few more tell-tale signs that your little one is ready for a solid-food adventure!

• He no longer pushes food out of his mouth with his tongue; he has learned to swallow.

• He seems genuinely interested in foods and might even open his mouth for a taste of what parents are eating.

• He can sit up well on his own, without support.
