What is weaning?

Introducing your baby to solid foods, also referred to as weaning or complementary feeding, is recommended by the NHS to start when your baby is around 6 months old.

Your baby should be introduced to a varied diet, alongside their usual breast milk or first infant formula.

It can be confusing knowing when and how to start introducing solid foods. We're here to guide you through the weaning journey and explain what it all means.
