- Introducing Solid Foods
At about six months of age, most babies are developmentally ready to start solid foods. This is a learning experience for baby and caregivers!
- Infant Formula
If you have decided to give your baby infant formula, it is important to safely prepare and feed infant formula to your baby.
You can help your baby to develop healthy eating habits from the start! Since your baby’s birth, you have been learning about and responding to your baby's hunger and fullness cues. Acting on baby’s cues and following their lead helps your baby learn to become a good eater and have a healthy relationship with food.
*If you have made an informed decision to offer infant formula to your baby, the recommendations for offering complementary (or solid) foods are the same as for babies who are breastfed.
