Giv­ing cor­rect food to ba­bies

Central and North Burnett Times - - YOUR SAY -

ARE you wor­ried about how you can know when your baby is ready for solid foods or whether you have waited too long to in­tro­duce them?

Ev­ery baby is dif­fer­ent, but you should start look­ing for signs that your baby is ready at around six months.

This is around the time when your baby’s iron stores, which they’ve gained from the womb, will start to de­crease and they will need to re­place them with iron and nu­tri­ents that are pro­vided by solid foods.

As al­ways, if you have further ques­tions about this or any other health is­sue for your child please chat to your GP or visit our WBHHS child health team at one of our cen­tres.
